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.

Former FBI Director James Comey called on Americans to vote for Democrats in the midterm elections.
In a tweet Tuesday night, Comey — a longtime Republican who distanced himself from the party in April — slammed the GOP for not standing up to President Trump.
“This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” he tweeted. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall.”
“Policy differences don’t matter right now,” he added. “History has its eyes on us.”
Comey joins former McCain campaign adviser Steve Schmidt and James Painter, former ethics lawyer for the Bush Administration, in calls for Americans to vote Democratic.
Well, they have certainly convinced me.
