James Comey, former FBI Director turned political activist, had some revealing advice for Twitter late last night and it didn’t go over well.
Here’s the tweet:
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.— James Comey (@Comey) July 18, 2018
Just in case that tweet by Comey disappears in the future, it said…
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.
Wow is this guy a joke or what. He’s basically saying if you vote Republican this fall, you are against the country’s values and history will condemn you for it.
And this guy used to run the FBI.
Twitter wasn’t too fond of what Comey said either and it got a ton of feedback, much of it not good:

Democrats never miss an opportunity to flaunt their egocentric belief that they alone can push history back onto its “right” course. https://t.co/WX9wOpPmwP— Kemberlee Kaye (@KemberleeKaye) July 18, 2018
Stop meddling in our elections! https://t.co/6ECMxrxrvt— Derek Hunter (@derekahunter) July 18, 2018
This is rich coming from arguably the most ambitious player of all in the FBI/DOJ 2016 presidential election fiasco -- one who proved lawless, insubordinate and broke policy at every turn in his ambition https://t.co/RaVjWJ7gSM— Benjamin Weingarten (@bhweingarten) July 18, 2018
So if we vote Republican, we don't care about this country's values?— Joel B. Pollak (@joelpollak) July 18, 2018
James Comey questions our patriotism unless we support The Party.
This hack was in charge of the FBI for years. Now THAT is scary. https://t.co/GtraKQnWgQ
I'm beginning to come around on Comey. I'm transitioning from sanctimonious, totally not self-aware swamp thing, to stone cold opportunistic pimp. Dude is getting Democrats to buy the wares he peddles, when he's the biggest reason of them all they lost the last election. https://t.co/4d6rocvqYW— Steve Deace (@SteveDeaceShow) July 18, 2018
Maybe you shouldn't be talking about whom people should vote for, since you likely elected someone through your pompous malfeasance. https://t.co/t53Rxz8vjb— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) July 18, 2018
Comey, a lifelong Republican until recently, now urges everyone to vote for Democrats. https://t.co/wgvufGWzpS— Steven Dennis (@StevenTDennis) July 18, 2018
Even Team Hillary wants no part of this…
Democrats don't want your endorsement, but thanks.https://t.co/1BVei3GbUC— Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) July 18, 2018
I think that about sums it up.
