Have You Seen The Comey Rule Yet?

It’s really unfair that the Americans get to see Brendan Gleeson as Donald Trump in a cleverly staged production right before their elections, while we have to make do with Vivek Oberoi as Narendra Modi after ours. Both The Comey Rule, the two-part political drama in which Gleeson plays the US president so sinisterly, and Oberoi’s comically poor PM Narendra Modi biography, were entangled in a bit of a release date mess.

The Comey Rule, a two-part Showtime dramatisation of James Comey’s memoir, A Higher Loyalty, is an exposition-heavy recounting of recent events in the vein of Jay Roach and Danny Strong’s HBO films Recount and Game Change. At this case, the history in question is Comey’s time at the FBI, namely his handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe and the Trump campaign’s interactions with Russia.

What is There in “The Comey Rule”

Throughout the months leading up to the 2016 election, the series follows FBI Director James Comey, as well as in the early months of Donald Trump’s presidency. Comey wants Mark F. Giuliano to remain on as deputy FBI director in 2015 to handle the “Midyear” probe into Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server.

George Papadopoulos, a Trump campaign adviser, is the subject of Crossfire Hurricane in 2016. Carter Page is reported to have been recruited by GRU as an asset. Russian oligarchs Oleg Deripaska and Dmytro Firtash are alleged to employ Paul Manafort. When Donald Trump stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Moscow in 2013, the inquiry discovered uncorroborated allegations that the Russian government possessed negative material on him.

After ending the Midyear Clinton probe in July 2016, the Comey bureau reopens it after some Hillary Clinton server e-mails pop up on Anthony Weiner’s laptop computer in a fresh sexting scandal. The first episode finishes with news that Hillary Clinton had contacted Donald Trump to accept his election victory. The heads of the Intelligence Community tell Barack Obama in the second episode that Russia wants a friendly Donald Trump in the White House to collapse NATO, end the Iran nuclear deal, allow oil drilling in the Arctic, pave the way for a Turkish invasion of the Kurds, start a trade war with China, and most importantly, sow discord.

How The Comey Rule Ended?

After Obama expels 35 Russian diplomats and imposes new sanctions on Russia, Russian envoy Sergey Kislyak begs Michael Flynn to stop economic penalties against Russia. During a White House briefing after the 2016 election, James Clapper and other intelligence leaders review the Steele dossier with Obama.

Following Trump’s election in 2016, US intelligence chiefs met with the Trump campaign in Trump Tower, New York, to inform them that Russian government agents are duplicating pro-Trump propaganda on Russia Today and Sputnik Radio using fake social media accounts on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Comey also accuses the Russians of interfering with the election process.

Trump invites Comey to the White House for a secret meal, during which he demands loyalty. Following that, Trump dismisses Sally Yates. Trump tells Comey that he did not give Iran “a billion dollars” like Obama did. Trump then asks Comey to terminate the investigation against Michael Flynn by the FBI. The second episode concludes with Comey’s departure, as well as the firings, resignations, re-assignments, and retirements of other FBI and DOJ nominated officials.

Wrapping Up

And what a delight it is to see them. Neither of them are making an impact. It’s as though they’re possessed men. Gleeson, whose craggy outlines are frequently photographed in close-ups, is as unsettling as Trump. I’ve never observed the real Trump do this thing with his mouth — a low sucking sound — but it must have been something the actor picked up on. It’s a spectacular display, to be sure, but Trump is the definition of a showboat.
