Former FBI director James Comey said in a tweet Tuesday that the Republican Congress “has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that “Ambition must … counteract ambition.” and that everyone who believes in this country’s values “must vote for Democrats this fall.”
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.

This is not the first time Comey has weighed in on the elections. In late June, Comey told the Economist podcast that he hopes the Democrats will nominate a presidential candidate in 2020 that will appeal to the ” great middle.”
