Comey: If You Believe In America, Vote For Democrats

19 Juillet, 2018, 10:17 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Comey, until recently a Republican, argued on Twitter on Tuesday night that the GOP, which controls both chambers of Congress, has failed to provide an adequate check on Trump.

"All who believe in this country's values must vote for Democrats this fall", he said. "Policy differences don't matter right now".

"History has its eyes on us", he concluded.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director recently said he no longer considers himself a Republican, citing the party's inaction in confronting Trump on his "falsehoods" in interviews, including with CBC News to promote his book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership. Democrats have particularly taken ire with his decision to re-open the investigation, as a result of evidence that came to light in the prosecution of former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.), so close to election day. Democrats were largely aggravated by his treatment of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.

Putin said during the press conference that he did not try to influence the 2016 election, a statement that Trump called "extremely strong and powerful".

Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior adviser and White House communications director for President Barack Obama, was especially dismissive of the endorsement.

Comey's tweet comes as tensions continue to boil over in Washington following President Donald Trump's recent remarks in Helsinki, where he met Monday with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
