Comey: Vote for Democrats in midterm elections

Comey, who had been registered as a Republican most of his life, urged "all who believe in this country's values" to vote for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections, CNN reports.

Former FBI director James Comey arrives at the Irish Film Institute for for a public interview in Dublin, Ireland June 22, 2018.

Comey took to Twitter on Tuesday to denounce congressional Republicans for having "proven incapable" of holding Trump accountable.

He added: "All who believe in this country's values must vote for Democrats this fall". Several of Trump's top national security officials have said publicly that they agree with the assessment, while on Monday, Trump continued to cast doubt, saying he did not "see any reason why" Russian Federation would be responsible.

After Mr Trump was criticised for appearing to support Mr Putin's denial of Russian involvement in meddling in the USA elections, the U.S. president claimed he "misspoke".

During that tour, Comey declared the Republican Party "left me" and stated he no longer wanted to be associated with the GOP. I need no better evidence than their new website - which I think is "Lyin Comey, ' maybe? - attacking me".

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.

"It wasn't healthy or productive to dwell on the ways I felt I'd been shivved by then-FBI Director James Comey - three times over the final five months of the campaign", wrote Clinton in her 2017 book, "What Happened", which attempts to explain how she lost the election.

"I see the Republican Party, as near as I can tell, reflects now entirely Donald Trump's values. It's transactional, it's ego-driven, it's in service to his ego", he added.
