IMPEACH
By Timothy Christopher Teemal

GENRE: Action, Mystery
LOGLINE:

Fired by the FBI, Peter Stork becomes the only person standing in the way of impeachment of the President, when he discovers a nefarious plot by a UN Ambassador, a Saudi journalist and Russian hitmen to unseat the US President.

SYNOPSIS:

Nikki's lust for Jamal, her Saudi journalist lover, is only superseded by her lust for power.

With the spectre of Russian collusion clouding the legitimacy of the presidency, Nikki, who is appointed UN ambassador, is able to convince the president he is under attack by many traditional organisations, including those in his own party, the media and especially the FBI.

As evidence of FBI bias, Nikki uses text messages sent by FBI agent Peter Stork which were disparaging of the sitting president, in order to prove her point and get Peter fired.

Bitter and disgraced, Peter vows to unearth the truth about the president.

He loses everything in his pursuit including his wife and kids and most of his money.

His journey sees him go from China to North Korea to Iran and then finally to Turkey where he witnesses a Saudi hit squad tying up Nikki's loose ends by assassinating her Saudi lover.

The brazen assassination, which took place at a Saudi embassy in Turkey, is designed to strain relations between the US and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, forcing an oil trade war.

Already reeling from trade fights with many allies and foes alike, because of Nikki's plotting, the President, already laughed at by many world leaders, must now go cap in hand to the Russians to save the American economy.

Nikki suddenly resigns from her appointment and lays in wait to return to save her party after they turn against the President, by initiating Impeachment proceedings.

Nikki's brilliant plot is coming together, but Peter throws a monkey wrench in her plans when he discovers that Russian hitmen, who were fingered in attempt to assassinate Russian dissidents resident in the UK, were actually targeting an innocuous British woman, who knew about and has evidence of Nikki's longstanding relationship with her Saudi lover.

Tasked with finding the Russian hitmen, who themselves are now targets for assassination, Peter uses every trick in the book and calls in every favour to get to them. He does, but they are killed but not before they point him to the evidence he needs to thwart Nikki.

One last trick up her sleeve, Nikki kidnaps Peter's family forcing him to decide between a president he dislikes and a family he loves.

Peter does the right thing.
