“The Fight: A Secret Service Agent’s Inside Account of Security Failings and the Political Machine” became his second book and then “Spygate: The Attempted Sabotage of Donald J. Trump,” the third.
As a radio talk show host, Dan Bongino often appears on media shows (sometimes as a guest host and some other time as a host.) In fact, he appears frequently as a guest host in Mark Levin’s radio show, Sean Hannity’s radio show, InfoWars, FOX News programs, and others.
