Trump and Russia: Sex, Spies and Scandal

Series 202 - Episode 1 Trump and Russia: Sex, Spies and Scandal



Donald Trump says it’s the greatest witch-hunt in American political history. But it’s also – potentially – a political scandal that would surpass Watergate. Here the estimable Matt Frei looks into what has emerged so far from investigations into whether members of Trump’s circle, including some in his own family, colluded with agents of the Russian state in the run up to the 2016 US presidential election. And if so, what did each side stand to gain?


A year after one of the greatest political upsets of all time, Matt Frei travels to Moscow and Washington to discover more about the alleged conspiracy between Donald Trump and Russia during his presidential campaign. Speaking to insiders and examining a wealth of evidence, Frei explores the deep links between Trump confidants and Russia. The President denies the accusations, stating that it is the greatest witch-hunt in American history, but did the Trump campaign really collude with the Russians?
