Former FBI Director James Comey has called on American voters to end Donald Trump’s presidency with a “landslide” victory for his opponent in 2020.
“All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021,” Comey told an audience at the 92nd Street Y on New York City’s Upper East Side.
Former FBI Director told Democrats to set aside their ideological differences and nominate the person best suited to defeating President Trump in an election.
“I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be,” Comey told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, “but they have to win. They have to win.”
Over the course of more than an hour, James Comey repeatedly attacked Trump’s character comparing the atmosphere around the President to what he saw in prosecuting mafia figures and claimed that Trump’s tweets would eventually amount to witness tampering.
When asked if President Trump might be an unindicted co-conspirator in some of the crimes recently described by Robert Mueller, Comey said he didn’t know, “but if he’s not there, he’s certainly close.”
Comey added that he hoped that President Trump would be swept out of office without being impeached. But instead said the president needs to be defeated at the ballot, he expressed a hope that Americans would “in a landslide rid ourselves of this attack on our values.”
“Removal by impeachment would muddy that,” he said, and potentially leave a third of the country feeling like their chosen leader had been removed in a “coup.”
