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.

    Ex-DOJ official reveals hidden meaning of bombshell NYT report: US intel agencies fear Trump is a double agent

    ……One, the fact that the U.S. intelligence had obtained texts and emails of senior Russian officials and made it clear that Putin was involved,” Miller said, “and, two, even more importantly, that there was a human source close to Vladimir Putin who was cooperating with the intelligence community and providing information. That was key to this conclusion that Putin had directly ordered the intervention in the election.”

    Miller said it was extraordinary that revelation of sources and methods was revealed to the public, and reflected an apparent deep mistrust of the president by the intelligence community.

    “That is really the crown jewels of U.S. intelligence, and the fact that it made it out publicly was concerning to me,” Miller said. “I will say, after I found out, after I read that story last night and found that the president has known going back to a year and a half now about what exactly Vladimir Putin did, and he helped him cover up that crime by lying about it it publicly and help him cover up that crime by standing up on Monday and lying about it publicly, and it made U.S. intelligence officials wonder what happened in the meeting.”…

    Comey has lost all credibility with me, so I really could care less who he wants me to vote for. I still hold him partial responsible for the mess we are in now. He had more info than the public about trump and russia, but went ahead and trashed Hillary anyway without mentioning the trump.

    Hey Gryph, I do not need convincing to vote Dem. I hope that Indepedents (new and old) vote Dem too!

    The real deal is though it is midterm elections where too many Dem voters don’t vote, it is of course imperative to vote, early voting matters too.

    Be ID’d up, rally for the Dem vote, and VOTE DEM! We can to this for American democracy. Just do it for yourself and those you love; if you have them (or hope to have them) do it for your children and grandchildren!

    “Removing a president from office is a two-step process. The first step is impeachment. That’s when members of the House indict, or charge, an official with an impeachable offense. Impeachment does not remove the president from office. That only happens if a second step is taken and the president is convicted of the alleged crimes.”

      Uh…. duhhhh.

      You do know Clinton was impeached don’t you?

      Trump is not going to be impeached or removed from office.

        “The impeachment of Bill Clinton was initiated in December 1998 by the House of Representatives and led to a trial in the Senate for the impeachment of Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, on two charges, one of perjury and one of obstruction of justice.[1] These charges stemmed from a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Clinton by Paula Jones. Clinton was subsequently acquitted of these charges by the Senate on February 12, 1999.[2] Two other impeachment articles – a second perjury charge and a charge of abuse of power – failed in the House.

        Leading to the impeachment, Independent Counsel Ken Starr turned over documentation to the House Judiciary Committee. Chief Prosecutor David Schippers and his team reviewed the material and determined there was sufficient evidence to impeach the president. As a result, four charges were considered by the full House of Representatives; two passed, making Clinton the second president to be impeached, after Andrew Johnson in 1868, and only the third against whom articles of impeachment had been brought before the full House for consideration (Richard Nixon resigned from the presidency in 1974, while an impeachment process against him was underway).”

    ‘“They said NO. We don’t want to have them come in, we don’t want to hear what they have to say. They wouldn’t explain why but it was very clear that anything that might tarnish the NRA, anything that might lead to discoverable evidence that might incriminate the White House or people around the president, they didn’t want to hear.”

    ” activists would be much better off putting their time and energy into voting as many Republicans out of office as possible in the November midterms. And most important of all, a Mike Pence presidency would be even worse than a Trump presidency. Replacing President Trump with a President Pence would be a much worse scenario than Gerald Ford taking over in 1974.”
    ” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan have no interest in seeing Trump impeached no matter how many allegations over Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election surface.”
    ” Pence adores corporate power, loves Koch Industries and would like to see the New Deal and the Great Society eradicated altogether.”

    “he opposed Bush’s Medicare prescription drug expansion in 2002 and his No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Pence has been active in the Tea Party, which believes that President Bush wasn’t right-wing enough.

    In Nixon and Ford’s day, the John Birch Society were considered far-right extremists. Even William F. Buckley disliked them. But Pence has no problem with the Tea Party, which is very Birch-like in its outlook.”
    ‘ Omarosa’>’“Can I just say, as bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence. I will tell you. So, everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider.” “We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president…. (Pence is) extreme. I’m Christian. I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things. And I’m like, ‘Jesus ain’t saying that.’”

    “Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse once said of Pence, “If Pence were to become president for any reason, the government would be run by the Koch Brothers. Period. He’s been their tOOl for years.””

    ” it used to be that women were held to a little bit of a higher standard. We required modesty from women. Now, are we beyond those days where a woman can behave as a slut, but you can’t call her a slut?”

    “The story of Trump’s victory in 2016 is relatively straightforward. He offset historic losses among college-educated whites with huge gains among white voters without college degrees, giving him a narrow but decisive advantage in key swing states where those voters dominate the electoral landscape.

    Trump geared his campaign around those voters, elevating the blue-collar, working-class white man as the “forgotten” American”

    “” he said during the campaign, also promising universal health coverage. “Everybody’s got to be covered. This is an un-Republican thing for me to say,” he told CBS News in 2016. “I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not.
    Everybody’s going to be taken care of much better than they’re taken care of now.”

    His voters expected Trump to deliver. “Our bridges are the worst,” said one supporter who attended Trump’s inauguration. “I think what Trump’s going to do is really get this infrastructure built again. He’s going to rebuild it.” Ahead of his first speech to Congress, one supporter told USA Today that he expects the president to “make health care affordable.””
    “the question remains: Has any of this hurt him?” “Judging from his recent approval ratings in predominantly white, blue-collar Midwestern strongholds, the answer is YE$. In Ohio and Wisconsin, for example, Trump saw his approval fall 18 points since inauguration for a net rating of minus 4 and minus 12, respectively. In Iowa it fell 16 points to a net rating of minus 7. Trump has also suffered in Michigan, Minnesota, and demographically similar states like Pennsylvania.” ” “Democrats have improved on their 2016 performance by an average of 11 points.” Democratic House candidates have also recovered lost ground, running competitive races in Republican-held districts.”

    ““Partisanship in the Trump Era,” Vanderbilt political scientist Larry Bartels finds a substantial number of Democrats with “culturally conservative” beliefs, extending to highly racialized views like “discrimination against whites is as big a problem today as discrimination against blacks and other minorities.””$O>”As a policy program, Trumpism is a dead letter, and the president now stands for little more than demagoguery, scandal, and profound incompetence. & His inability to govern.”

    “Brady’s answer is a ready-made campaign ad for Democrats.”
    ” The problem is bigger than Trump’s tax returns. There is no congressional investigation of Scott Pruitt’s corruption at EPA. There is no congressional investigation of HUD Secretary Ben Carson, or Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, or Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. The lack of oversight is allowing Trump and his cabinet to raid the treasury while undermining the US government.> Republicans simply aren’t interested in Trump’s corruption because they are part of a cover-up. Many of them don’t even know what they are covering for, but because they fear Trump’s base, and they are corrupt, they have sold out the Constitution and this country for their president.”
