The 2020 election is heating up, and Showtime has the perfect piece of programming to accompany all the madness.
The Comey Rule is a two-part limited series adaptation and dramatization of events discussed in former FBI Director James Comey’s best-selling book A Higher Loyalty, specifically dealing with President Donald Trump (portrayed by Brendan Gleeson) and the 2016 election tampering investigation. One part focuses on an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s controversial private e-mail server and how it impacted the election four years ago, while the other shines a light on the first few months of the Trump presidency. All throughout, Jeff Daniels pushes back against Trump as James Comey.

Based on former FBI director James Comey‘s book A Higher Loyalty, the miniseries focuses on Russia’s manipulation of the United States election process in 2016 and the investigation into the Trump presidency that followed after evidence pointed to collusion between his campaign higher-ups and Russian operatives.
Much of the drama in The Comey Rule comes from the contentious relationship between Comey (Jeff Daniels) and President Donald Trump (Brendan Gleeson), making it a prime piece of entertainment for the 2020 election season. But Showtime was planning on releasing the miniseries in late November, well after the election was over.
