In 1915, former president Theodore Roosevelt accused his one-time friend and ally, William Barnes, of political corruption. The furious Barnes responded by suing Roosevelt for an enormous sum that could have financially ruined him. Following the case through court transcripts and news reports, Dan Abrams and David Fisher re-create the spectacle of Roosevelt defending himself from libel charges on the witness stand, which became a fight to defend his political legacy and regain his fading stature. Facing both a legal battle and the Tammany Hall political machine, Teddy would reach out to a rising young Assistant Secretary of the Navy—his fifth cousin, Franklin D. Roosevelt.
