The Comey Rule Episode 1 Recap
The first episode sees James Comey interviewing with President Obama and landing the job of a lifetime — Director of the FBI. Comey replaces Robert Mueller at the FBI and quickly manages to become a favorite among his peers. In 2015, Comey and his team take up Hillary Clinton’s case during her tenure as the Secretary of State. The first episode also introduces us to Comey’s wife Patrice and his daughters.
However, following President Donald Trump’s win in November 2016, Comey is horribly surprised. He had just started his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, which might have been the reason for the election results. Not only this, just two years into his tenure, and Comey is embroiled in more controversies. The Bureau is plunged into two hugely controversial cases — the Midyear Exam and the Crossfire Hurricane — an investigation into Russia’s trysts to derail the 2016 Presidential Election. Comey makes some very vital decisions regarding these matters, which lead to history, changing its course.
