Former FBI Director James Comey isn’t going to forget about being fired by President Trump anytime soon. In a recent interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace he told Americans to “get off the couch” to keep President Trump from being re-elected in 2020. He calls the Trump presidency as “attack on our values.”
“I can’t see what the end of the Mueller effort looks like, I don’t know what form it’ll take, I don’t know what they’ll conclude….I can tell you that all of us should use every breath we have to make sure that the lying stops on January 20, 2021,” Comey said while at an event Sunday night in New York City.
“I hope that Donald Trump is not removed from office by impeachment because it would let the country off the hook,” Comey said while speaking with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, who was the moderator of the event. “And it would drive into the fabric of our nation a third of the people believing there was a coup. And we need a moment of inflection, where we all get off the couch and say, ‘That is not who we are,’ and in a landslide rid ourselves of this attack on our values.” The former FBI director suggested that impeachment might “short-circuit” the political process, and “we wouldn’t have the moment of clarity we need in this country.”

Comey did say that if President Trump were to be impeached and removed from office “that’s fine.”
