Storyline

This special report by Bill Moyers illustrates and evidences about the contradictions revolving U.S. government when it comes to actually follow and obey the Constitution and its rulings. During the Iran-Contra affair, the White House was giving one appearance that wasn't factual, constantly overruling the most important document of the nation. However, Moyers and guests takes us back to other historical times when the powers in Washington weren't following exactly the Constitution and were doing whatever they wanted to do. Written by Rodrigo Amaro
