‘The Plot Against The President‘ is a 2020 political documentary based on a book by Lee Smith and directed by Amanda Milius.
The documentary explores the frenzy surrounding the Steel Dossier, a leaked document that alleged some gross and illegal behavior by then-future President Donald Trump and staffers who worked on his campaign or transition team. It also explores the allegations of the tired “Russia collusion” story pushed by the Left and the corporate media. From there, we get an insider’s look at the targeting of Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, and Donald Trump, Jr., all while other more serious scandals were ignored.
Through interviews with former Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA), his team, independent journalists, and lawyers, we follow the trail of how President Trump and his allies were targeted. It shows how Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) would lie about seeing “classified” evidence only for it to evaporate under scrutiny.
In this way, the documentary does a good job of presenting its story, showing you all of the players on both sides, and exposing some of the outright fraud that the taxpayers had to fund because some high-powered political leaders on the Left and the Right were hurt.
Not once did I feel lost, though I do think they could have done a better job of keeping the person of conversation during a segment more focused, I still engaged heavily with the content. It showed the endless cycle of how corruption feeds into media malpractice, allowing for some truly terrible events to take place. This documentary captures these moments and exposes them to the viewer.
I can honestly say that it is a documentary that challenges the mainstream narrative within politics.
As an aside, my favorite movie director of all time is the man behind the original Red Dawn John Milius. That made this documentary nostalgic to watch as it was directed by his daughter, who I will say, did an excellent job.
