Former FBI Director James Comey suggested over Twitter on Tuesday that anyone who votes Republican in the upcoming midterm elections is un-American.
“Ambition must … counteract ambition,” wrote Comey, adding “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us.”
In other words, any Republican who doesn’t vote Democrat in November doesn’t believe in American values.
Comey’s comments come on the heels of what some interpreted as a call for a coupagainst President Trump after the Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin, when he tweeted”This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country,” adding “Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president.”
Some aren’t having Comey’s pontificating…
Former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer Zac Petkanas – who is leading the DNC’s “war room” against President Trump, said “Dear @Comey — We don’t want you. Sincerely, The Democratic Party,” adding “He thinks it’s helpful for a witness in an obstruction of justice case against Donald Trump is out there campaigning for Democrats. STFU”
