PHOENIX (KSAZ) -- Former FBI Director James Comey has a simple request for voters in this fall's midterm election.
Comey's call was made in a tweet posted to his verified Twitter page Tuesday night.
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
In the tweet, Comey said the Republican Party-led Congress has proven itself to be "incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that “Ambition must ... counteract ambition.”".
Comey's tweet came just a day after he made two tweets attacking President Donald Trump.
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.— James Comey (@Comey) July 16, 2018
Having sold out our nation on an international stage, Mr. Trump will now explain it all to Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson? I’m guessing RT and Sputnick were unavailable. He owes it to our nation to sit down with a serious journalist.— James Comey (@Comey) July 17, 2018
On Monday, President Donald Trump held a summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.
A press conference with Trump and Putin, where Trump openly questioned U.S. intelligence agencies' claim that Russia meddled in the presidential election to Trump's benefit, has since been condemned by some members of Congress, including a number of GOP lawmakers, as "bizarre", "shameful", and a "missed opportunity" to stand up to Russia.
