    The Jews control all the US Elections and both Political Parties whose candidates cannot run unless they publicly pledge their obedience and enslavement to Israel, yet FAKE JEW NEWS TV Networks insist to feed you nonsense to make you more and even more stupid...."it's the Russians!!!" If it was the Russians then how on earth you keep fighting dying for the endless wars of Israel and why you pay billions of $ to Israel annually, while in the 1990s you lead Russia to Bankruptcy and the Russian people into starvation with the Yeltsin elite that the Zionist Americans installed and controlled for almost a decade? Think, can you just think?

      Ebiegberi Adonkie seems like you’re wearing the trump team jersey instead of the USA jersey. If you don’t think anything was wrong with what trump did it’s not irrational to question your patriotism. Grow up, read the federalist papers, listen to battle cry of freedom, then maybe you’ll take off the political party Jersey.

    Anyone who watched and actually thought it is the truth only belueves it because of thier hatefor trump. No other reason to believe this story. I no that for afact. Its not hard to go and DEBUNK everything that was said in this fakedoc. The funniest part is how they make comey out to be this great fbi agent and how him getting fired was illegal by trump. No. We all can check for r sekves and c what this criminal had done to get fired. They also forgot to mention that b4 trump fired him that they were begging for him to be fired. They were the ones being corrupt. They thought he was going to lock hillary. Once comey changed his mind then so did they.

    At the beginning they say Trump meeting with the investigators is something that you shouldn't do.
    So where does deleting 30k emails rank in this list of things you shouldn't do in an investigation???
    Yep, that's what I thought!

    Hey PBS where is you’re documentary now that the Mueller report found that there was NO COLLUSION with any member or in fact any Americans with the Russians?
    Where is the documentary saying that Isikoff got his information from the proven false Steele dossier? Where is the documentary saying that Comey lied on the FISC warrant applications?

    How bias was this ... in the end the Mueller reports found no coordination between Trump and the Russians. All of his team were hunted and arrested and indicted. Treatment HILLIARY CLINTON, THE FBI, and DOJ heads of the Obama Administration should have gotten for setting up a coup attempt to take out a sitting duly elected (by the AMERICAN PEOPLE) President Donald J. Trump!! The one sided preferential treatment of the LEFT is despicable and someone has to right this wrong already and heads should role and people be put in jail like Trump's cabinet was.

    Trump's biggest mistake was choosing Sessions as the AG. Chris Christie should have been chosen and none of this horse shit would have ever gone down. Christie was passed over because he had prosecuted Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner's father. And so the country had to suffer because if this. Mueller and the FBI came to a gun fight with nothing more than a thumb up their butt.

    to whoever reads this comment : myself and over a dozen investigators who dislike you very much have searched high and low and everywhere else in between for two years trying to prove that you colluded with the russian government. unfortunately we couldn't find any proof of your crimes. just because we didn't find any incriminating evidence doesn't mean you didn't commit treason. this is how you play tennis without a net.

  • John Edward Gallagher

    Did not comey cross the line. You guys have a clear side your on and the information is presentent in a way to make it look bad for the executive. Is not the FBI's job to do what is best for america and is this what is best for america. Or are you guys selling a dramatic story so that you can make money and do not care if you harm america.; I urge people to turn this off.

    It is reasonable that the FBI director be loyal to the president. That is not an unreasonable thing. To make this sound bad is a wrong thing. Disloyalty in the FBI is the problem.

    To think I used to watch Front Line and think I was watching honest ""professional journalism"! What an embarrassing display of shoddy biased reporting. Now that the inspector General and Judicial Watch are forcing the FBI and Justice Dept to hand over the evidence confirming the fully biased "witch hunt", will PBS now correct all the lies and set up of all the Trump team. Comey lied to congress saying he didn't' let anyone know of his secret investigation on Trump. He said due " to the sensitive nature of the investigation" he couldn't let anyone know what he was investigating. Not even the POTUS was told, instead he told the POTUS that he just wanted him to know about the selatious Steele Dossier. But, he admitted to the IG Horowitz, that he was indeed investigating Trump and he was surveilling Trump's reactions after that strange visit to deliver the Dossier. Comey was if not the architect, the director of the attack Trump and protect Hillary team. Comey told Trump that Dossier is not verified. Yet, he submits it as the lead evidence of Russian collusion to obtain a FISA warrant, three times swearing under oath to it's authenticity.

    I will guess without even watching. PBS presented this as a foregone conclusion that Trump colluded?
    The idea of collusion was a hoax from the start. Even Strzok knew that before Mueller started.
    Mueller knew it was a hoax either before he started or very early on.
    All bullshit.
    So now will PBS do a documentary to show how this was all a hoax?
    PBS = Pure Bull Shit.

    Its interesting to watch this in hindsight with the knowledge we now have that Comey was a rogue Democrat agent with an agenda to try a soft coup to unseat a Democratically elected President of the united states and while this documentary tries it's best to paint Robert Mueller as this sharp as a tack , bipartisan super patriot the sad reality is the man should be wearing a helmet and taking meds for dementia lol Trump2020
