Directed by Daniel DiMauro and Morgan Pehme (Get Me Roger Stone), The Swamp provides a look behind the curtain of Washington politics by following three renegade Republican Congressmen – Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Thomas Massie (R-KY), and Ken Buck (R-CO) – over the course of a pivotal year in politics as they champion President Trump’s call to “drain the swamp.”
With unique behind-the-scenes access to the inner workings of the House amid major breaking news events, including the Robert Mueller hearing and Presidential impeachment proceedings, the film presents a revealing look at the core democratic institution of American government and demonstrates the breadth and grip of a system that rewards fundraising above all else, plaguing Congress on both sides of the aisle.
I’m generally a little wary about political documentaries, because they always seem to have An Agenda. But I have to say, The Swamp looks really interesting.
Will you tune in?
