Former FBI director as well as long-time Republican supporter James Comey will be urging American voters to support Democrats inside upcoming midterm elections.
“This specific Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design of which ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” Comey said in a tweet late Tuesday.
“All who believe in This specific country’s values must vote for Democrats This specific fall. Policy differences don’t matter right currently. History has its eyes on us.”
Comey’s tweet comes as tensions continue to boil over in Washington, following President Donald Trump’s extraordinary press briefing alongside his Russian counterpart in Helsinki on Monday.
Speaking next to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump repeatedly rejected the conclusions of the U.S. intelligence agencies as well as failed to publicly condemn Russia for allegedly meddling inside 2016 election.
“They said they think of which’s Russia,” Trump said of the U.S. intelligence community, before adding: “I have President Putin … he’s just said of which’s not Russia. I will say This specific, I don’t see any reason why of which could be.”
On Tuesday, however, Trump said he misspoke in Helsinki, as well as of which he had, in fact, meant to say he didn’t see “any reason why of which wouldn’t be Russia,” thereby tilting the scales in favor of the assessment reached by his own intelligence agencies, as well as not the denial issued by Putin.
