In a tweet on Tuesday evening, Comey called the Republican-held Congress “incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design.”
“This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition.’ 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,” he wrote.
Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, also spoke out Monday against the President’s comments at his joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country. Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president,” Comey said on Twitter.
“The Republican Party has left me and many others. I need no better evidence than their new website — which I think is ‘Lyin Comey,’ maybe? — attacking me. I just think they’ve lost their way, and I can’t be associated with it,” Comey told ABC News’ “Start Here” podcast at the time.
He continued in his interview with ABC News: “I see the Republican Party, as near as I can tell, reflects now entirely Donald Trump’s values.”
“It doesn’t reflect values at all. It’s transactional, it’s ego-driven, it’s in service to his ego,” he added.
