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

Interesting look at the dynamic between the FBI and the President
27 January 2019 | by rebeckyJP-688-677071See all my reviews

I'm writing this not only because I enjoyed the show, but because the accusations of this show being propaganda is unfounded. The show examines 4-5 conflicts between the FBI and executive branch starting with Watergate. Speaking with numerous former agents as well as former White House employees the stories show both sides of these conflicts. The episode focus on the following: watergate, Iran-contra scandal, Chinagate/Whitewater"/Monica gate, and the rise of Comey during the Bush Adminstration up until the present day. Incredibly interesting and I recommend.
