An ugly and controversial U.S. election campaign got even uglier – and more bizarre – after the election was over. In recent days, Donald Trump has faced a storm of questions about his Russian connections.

On Inauguration Day January 20, The Fifth Estate’s Bob McKeown looks at what was behind the triumph of Trump – and the disturbing questions left unanswered.
