Just a few months after using a mock movie trailer to remind Americans that a terrifying wave of overt white supremacy in the United States was "not a movie," Eleven Films has done it again—this time, highlighting the reality of President Donald Trump's corruption.

It's been 15 days since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced an impeachment inquiry into Trump for urging the Ukrainian President to investigate Trump's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. Since then, the White House confirmed the allegations with a rough transcript of the damning phone call, a whistleblower complaint corroborated it, and Trump asked the Chinese to investigate Biden on national television.

President Donald Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky showed that Trump urged Zelensky to investigate Trump's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

As Trump's Republican allies desperately tried to spin the damning contents of the rough transcript of the call, released by the White House itself, they kept asserting there was no "quid pro quo," meaning Trump hadn't stated explicitly that military aid to Ukraine would be contingent on whether or not Zelensky facilitated an investigation into Biden.

The plot continues to thicken in the saga of President Donald Trump's discussions with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Trump and company have conceded that the President urged Zelensky to investigate Trump's possible 2020 rival for President, former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

In a rough transcript of the July 25 conversation released Wednesday morning, which was further corroborated by the whistleblower complaint released on Thursday, Trump discusses military aid to Ukraine before asking Zelensky for a "favor": investigate the origins of the Mueller report, of the Democratic National Committee hack, and the business dealings of Biden's son.

Bryan U.S. Courthouse with his wife Kathleen Manafort (L) after an arraignment hearing as a protester holds up a sign March 8, 2018 in Alexandria, Virginia.

After defrauding the United States of millions through his work in Ukraine and on behalf of Russian elites, former campaign chair to President Donald Trump, Paul Manafort, received a 47 month prison sentence in one of the two cases brought against him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office.

The sentence—handed down by U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III—was a far cry from the 19 to 24 years recommended by the Special Counsel, insisting that Manafort had lived an otherwise "blameless life."

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels and President Donald Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, have frequently been at odds since news broke that Cohen arranged a hush payment to Daniels just ahead of the 2016 election in exchange for her silence regarding an alleged 2006 affair with then-nominee Donald Trump.

While Trump and Cohen frequently decried Daniels as a liar while moving to publicly humiliate her in hopes of Trump avoiding scrutiny for breaking campaign finance laws.

President Donald Trump's attorney and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has widely established a perception of ineptitude after months of contradictory explanations for Trump's actions and a series of verbal gaffes that have since been immortalized.

So it's fair to say he lived up to expectations when responding to former Trump attorney Michael Cohen's leaked opening statement ahead of Cohen's testimony to the House Oversight Committee Thursday morning.
