Former FBI Director James Comey: Vote for Democrats This Fall

Former FBI Director James Comey took to Twitter Tuesday evening to encourage his fellow Americans to vote for Democrats this fall.

Comey, whom President Trump fired in May 2017, criticized the Monday press conference in which Trump sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin over U.S. intelligence agencies on the question of 2016 election meddling.

“This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country,” Comey tweeted. “Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president.”

Then Tuesday evening, the former FBI director took it a step further, calling on Americans to support Democrats as a counterweight to Republicans, who back Trump’s policies.

It’s quite an arc for the man many Democrats believe cost Hillary Clinton the presidency in 2016, thanks to the FBI’s investigation of her handling of classified information stored on her personal email server. Comey, who used to be a Republican, said the thought that he tipped the scales in Trump’s favor made him “mildly nauseous” during an interview promoting his book, “A Higher Loyalty.”
