James Comey’s credibility is basically hanging by a thread, and yet, last night, he evidently thought this tweet was a good idea:
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.

It certainly has its eyes on James Comey. And it’s rolling them.
With all due respect Sir, you shouldn't be saying such things. You're giving those on the right more reason to think you and the FBI have it out for Trump.

Comey's explicit embracing of the Democrats is a weird move. It's certainly been implied he would want Democrats to win given his book and criticism of Trump. To come out and baldly say it gives leverage to opponents to dismiss him as a mere partisan.

The credibility of our law enforcement & intelligence institutions are under siege by people who claim that those institutions’ leaders are/were agenda-driven partisans. And said leaders seem absolutely determined to vindicate their critics’ attacks. https://t.co/12TgjmvnZ3

Comey’s instincts are dead wrong every time. Bucks DOJ norms to intervene inappropriately in an election, then further politicizes his firing by endorsing the President’s partisan opponents. Stay out of it! https://t.co/MGTkkrrmHi

Yep. The guy still hasn’t figured out that every time he opens his mouth, it blows up in his face.
It’s almost as though a bunch of lifelong Democrats ran the FBI & used it as a political weapon to benefit their candidate https://t.co/QlEDk6tnWv

Keep solidifying your stance that the FBI was partial to the left… You big dope!!!

So you were in the tank for Hillary, thanks for clearing that up.

I guess we now know why the upper management of the FBI and DOJ can’t understand why people think they have acted with bias. Because it ran from the top. What happened to you?
— Bradley Nickell ✝️?? (@CrimeAuthor) July 18, 2018
We already suspected it, but thanks for exposing yourself as a partisan shill.
— Mick Fury (@JerusalemFury) July 18, 2018
But you were impartial during your time at the FBI, right? Ha. ?

You're so full of it. It's only a matter of time before it all catches up to you.
