Comey: If You Believe In America, Vote For Democrats

This just in! Former FBI Director James Comey endorses the takeover of Congress by Democrats - in the name of the Founding Fathers, or at least in the name of Publius.

Comey, who was sacked by President Donald Trump in May 2017, issued a tweet urging Americans to snub Republicans this November.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who has been a Republican for much of his life, said the Republican-led Congress "has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders' design". "Policy differences don't matter right now. Sincerely, The Democratic Party", wrote Petkanas, who now acts as a Democratic political consultant. "History has its eyes on us", he posted.

Comey has become a sharp critic of Trump since his firing.


Trump has been criticized by dozens of lawmaker and former intelligence officials for his performance during a press conference with Putin Monday, when he offered his support of Putin's denial of Russian meddling and blamed both the USA and Russia for the decline in relations between the two nations.

While Trump said he fired Comey for his handling of the investigation into a private server used by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - a probe for which Comey has been criticized in an official report - the president at other times has admitted it was the FBI chief's inquiry into "this Russian Federation thing" that was a main factor.

After Mr Trump was criticised for appearing to support Mr Putin's denial of Russian involvement in meddling in the United States elections, the U.S. president claimed he "misspoke". Comey himself later said he was "mildly nauseous" at the idea that he influenced the outcome of the election.

Comey launched a book tour in April to promote "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership", which is highly critical of the president.
