Former FBI Director James Comey said that “all who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats” and that Republicans have been “incapable” in a Tuesday tweet.

“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,” Comey tweeted on Tuesday.

Comey, who was previously a registered Republican, has blasted President Donald Trump’s handling of the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, stating that Trump “stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country” in a Monday tweet(RELATED: Trump Approved Press Conference Of Russian Indictments To Strengthen Hand Against Putin)

Comey’s statement about the midterms comes after a Department of Justice Inspector General report found he was “insubordinate” and defied authority while he was director of the FBI, The Daily Caller reported in June 2018.

Comey is also under investigation for how he handled classified reports about his meetings with Trump, The Daily Caller reported in June 2018. He came under fire for his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server.
