Summary
In the view of some political observers, Vice President Dick Cheney spent his career waging a secretive battle to expand the power of the presidency. This episode of Frontline examines behind-closed-doors ideological divisions within the second Bush administration over the power of the executive branch and the rule of law. Viewers are introduced to several controversies at the heart of Cheney's tenure, including the use of domestic wiretapping, the firing of U.S. attorneys, the uncertain validity of asserting executive privilege, and other issues that put the administration at loggerheads with Congress
