In the 2018 documentary, Trumpâ€™s Showdown, filmmaker Michael Kirk and his team (America After 9/11, Bannonâ€™s War) methodically reveal how an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election grew to threaten Donald Trumpâ€™s presidency.
The film draws on more than 60 in-depth interviews with former heads of U.S. intelligence agencies, Trump insiders, attorneys, authors and journalists. Thousands of photographs and hundreds of hours of archival footage pull together the entire story â€“ from the days just before Trumpâ€™s inauguration to the increasingly chaotic events that ensnared powerful members of Trumpâ€™s inner circle and threatened the president himself.
