The Comey Rule - Netflix

Watched this limited series last night. Outstanding. Jeff Daniels as Comey, Michael Kelly as Andrew McCabe. Brendan Gleason as The Former Guy. Huge cast of excellent actors. Based on James Comey's book.

I have to say that I have a much better understanding of Trump's deep animosity to Comey. And Gleason portrayed Trump to a "T".

2. I thought Baldwin did a great DJT, but Gleason took it to the next level.

Really scary how evil that administration really was. Sadly, the morons who really need to see this, won't bother.

My take:

Gleason's character was very good and chilling too.

The language used is amazingly sober and precise.

I probably won't watch anymore until/unless people start going to jail. I found it dredging up too much unresolved shit that most of us here are aware of but unhappy with the outcome of.....so far anyway.

Again, thanks for the rec.

I've long suspected that one reason TFG disliked Comey so much, even besides the fact that Comey wouldn't cooperate with him, was that Comey is so much taller than TFG - who normally enjoys being able to intimidate people by getting in their space and looming over them.
