Comey has put all his effort behind the Democrats in the upcoming midterm election. The Free Beacon reports:
High-profile members of the Democratic Party are spurning the endorsement of James Comey, the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) fired by President Donald Trump.
Comey took to Twitter on Tuesday to denounce congressional Republicans for having “proven incapable” of holding Trump accountable. The former FBI director asserted that anyone believing “in this country’s values must vote for Democrats” in the coming midterm elections.
“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,” Comey tweeted. “Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us.”
The endorsement, however, was not enough to bridge the animosity Comey encumbered from the left for his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state. Democrats have particularly taken ire with his decision to re-open the investigation, as a resultof evidence that came to light in the prosecution of former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.), so close to election day.
This is a huge embarrassment for him – he is now left without any allies.
