A four-part documentary series, "Enemies: The President, Justice & the FBI" presents to viewers the complex history of presidents flexing their muscles with the rule of law and the FBI's job to enforce these. The epic clashes between President and FBI are brought to the forefront and such men to have had such confrontations are Nixon and Hoover and Trump and Comey. Each of these illuminates a different facet to the law and the United States democracy. Each story told gives a look at which lessons held up and which failed. It features interviews with current and former officials as well as the journalists who broke the stories.
President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey set in motion events that could lead to the biggest constitutional crisis in U.S. history; Special Counsel Robert Mueller must now carry the torch of justice.
The same people who criticize the FBI and the Special Counsel looking into President Trump once pushed to investigate President Bill Clinton; examining the 1998 impeachment and reconsidering today's investigations.
President Ronald Reagan does whatever it takes to free U.S. hostages and fund the Contra anti-communists; as the FBI investigates, Reagan's team shreds documents, perjures themselves and conceals evidence.
How the FBI, and the nation, came to realize that the president could be held accountable for his actions, using the long relationship between FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and President Richard Nixon as a map.
