Storyline

This four-part documentary series from Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney presents the long, complex history of presidents testing the rule of law and the FBI's job to enforce it. It tells the story of the epic confrontations between the President and the FBI. From Nixon and Hoover to Trump and Comey, each battle illuminates a different facet of our democracy and the law. Using the present as a prism, we look back to see which lessons held up, which didn't and how the current investigation of the Trump administration might turn out. Written by SHOWTIME

I felt this was fairly well balanced and factual look at our current situation. Until the Trump election I was a life long Democrat. My first time voting for President was for Bill Clinton. Funny how time changes a person. I voted for Donald Trump not because I agreed with him but because he represented a drastic change from the staus quo in Washington. I felt America needed a wake up call. Well we got it, let's see how we learn from it.

I highly respect Jim Comey and this series illustrates a couple of key things Comey did that shows he is a man of character and exactly the guy you want running the FBI.

Only time will tell how the Muller investigation will pan out. Hopefully, we'll see a season two of this show.
