The Comey Rule (2020)

TV-MA Drama 3h 30m

Whatever side you're on, you only know half the story.


An immersive, behind-the-headlines account of the historically turbulent events surrounding the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath, which divided a nation. This two-part biopic tells the story of two powerful figures, Comey and Trump, whose strikingly different personalities, ethics and loyalties put them on a collision course.
