There should have been little doubt that the events of the early years of President Trump would be encapsulated in a drama. It was inevitable. The question was who would do it. Well it turns out it was Showtime in a limited series called The Comey Rule.
The Comey Rule
This series is based on former FBI Director Jim Comedy’s book, A Higher Loyalty. In the show, Brendan Gleeson will portray the President and Jeff Daniels will play Comey. Here are the first released pictures of the actors in their roles.
The synopsis for the series goes as follows:
THE COMEY RULE takes us on an insider’s journey down the corridors of power. A time where decision-makers struggle to apply old norms to a dramatic new paradigm. This is in the face of Russia’s deep and unprecedented penetration into American politics. The results being our nation’s rule of law hanging in the balance.
Each character’s actions in these historic months made the careers of some, and destroyed the careers of other. These events helped shape the incendiary political landscape we live in today.
Part one of the series examines the earliest days of the Russia investigation. This includes the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and their impact on Election Night 2016. The Night when Donald Trump stunned the world and was elected president.
Part two is a virtual day-by-day account of the tempestuous relationship between Comey and Trump. It details the intense and chaotic first months of the Trump presidency. A time when allies became enemies, and enemies became friends. But truth depended on what side you were on.
