Seven Days in January invites listeners behind the curtain of power, offering a front-row seat to the shadowy deals and whispered arrangements at the heart of President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration. Deals of global consequence brokered by some of the world’s most powerful that have remained largely unreported and unheard — until now.
Featuring selections from more than a dozen hours of exclusive audio intended for a reality TV series that never aired, this investigative podcast series follows a week of elaborate events planned around Trump’s 2017 inauguration — and the players who made it happen. In its wake, the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee brought forth a riptide of criminal indictments and at least three ongoing investigations into those closest to Trump.
As January 20th approached, protestors from around the country swarmed Washington, D.C., gathering around the nation’s most sacred monuments. Within these halls of power, however, a far more troubling and secretive pilgrimage was taking place.
The inner-sanctum of some of the world’s most powerful figures in business, entertainment, and politics, where Seven Days in January transports listeners, like a fly on the wall.
We’re there for each clink of a champagne glass and tuxedoed whisper as they echo across the domed ceilings of ornate ballrooms, filled to the brim with the world’s elite saying things the public was never supposed to hear.
Yet here they are: a motley crew of ambassadors, despots, powerbrokers, royalty, private equity, lobbyists, operatives, casino magnates, and beyond. All looking to please or influence President-elect Trump, while those closest to him undermine the United States of America by pimping out the office of the presidency to the highest bidder.
