The True Story of the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History. A documentary based on the bestselling book by Lee Smith.
The plot against the President was a slow-moving coup engineered by a coterie of the American establishment elite, targeting not only the President, but the whole country. The plot began with the FBI opening a counterintelligence investigation on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign based on a falsified dossier paid for by an opposition candidate. It was an operation to sabotage a President and many U.S. private citizens. The conspirators included political operatives, the highest law enforcement and intelligence officials in the country, and especially the press.
This is the unheard, true story of how Congressman Devin Nunes and his team of misfits uncovered the operation to bring down the President of the United States. Nunes understood that the target of the operation wasn’t just Trump, but rather the institutions that sustain our republic. A country where operatives use the intelligence and security services to protect their privileges by spying on Americans, coordinating with the press, and using extra-constitutional means to undermine an election and try to undo a presidency, is more like the third world than the republic envisioned by the founding fathers. Without Nunes and his team, the plot against the President — and against the country — never would have been revealed.
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR, AMANDA MILIUS
Before starting this film, Amanda Milius worked for the Trump Administration at both the State Department and the White House. She was the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Content in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Global Public Affairs up through the first quarter of 2020, and was a Project Manager for the Office of American Innovation at the White House during 2019. Prior to government she worked on the President’s Inaugural Committee and campaign during 2016. Ms. Milius joined the Department of State in January 2017 and served in the administration for over three years. Despite her conservative views and political interests, Milius comes from an artistic and film industry background. Her father is noted right wing director/screenwriter John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Dirty Harry, Wind and the Lion, Red Dawn) and her mother is actress Celia Kaye. Thanks to her father she has had long running relationships with some of the most well-known people in the industry, and had a lot of opportunities to work on films of all sizes before starting her career. Prior to working in politics, Milius attended the USC School of Cinematic Arts, and completed her thesis film in 2015, which won an extraordinary number of awards and received a great deal of positive coverage. She worked in the film industry for top producers and directors of commercials, television, and film for over ten years.
Thinking she had left the film industry for good when she left Los Angeles for politics in Washington, Milius was not expecting to find herself in the middle of the most important story of the decade and was not expecting to have access to sources and players sought out by the media everywhere. There aren’t many capable film makers on the right, with the political ideology, experience or contacts in the government and Washington DC to tackle the complicated subject of “Russiagate’ and “Obamagate”. Bringing the Deep-State-Meets-Film-Noir of modern DC to the screen is something Amanda Milius may have unknowingly been born to deliver.
