CNN to air Putin documentary: 'The Most Powerful Man in the World'

CNN will air a documentary Monday night about Russian President Vladimir Putin titled "The Most Powerful Man in the World." 

"What is the true nature of the relationship between Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump says he doesn't want NYT in the White House Veterans group backs lawsuits to halt Trump's use of military funding for border wall Schiff punches back after GOP censure resolution fails MORE and Vladimir Putin — and, what are the implications of their relationship for America and the world?" asks a CNN press release promoting the Fareed Zakaria special, which will air at 9 p.m.

Zakaria also "gets answers to the many questions that surround the extraordinary conclusion reached by American intelligence: that Putin likely approved the hacking of the U.S. election," according to the release. 


Zakaria has been one of Trump's most outspoken critics on CNN, once calling the president a "bulls--t" artist" on live television.

"It’s sort of amusing to watch — how’s he going to pull it off this time? What is he going to argue? Usually he adds that the press hates him. But there’s a term for this kind of thing. This is the mode of a bullshit artist,” Zakaria said in August. 

The special will also feature Julia Ioffe of the Atlantic, David Remnick of The New Yorker, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. 

The FBI is investigating Russia's suspected intervention in the 2016 election, as well as links between Trump's campaign team and Russia.
