Former FBI Director James Comey moved back into the spotlight this week and broke his prolonged silence as he discussed the case piling up against President Donald Trump.

Comey recalled a meeting he had with the president in an interview with MSNBC Sunday night.

“I was to tell him what the threat is inside the United States, and I had some pretty hair-raising stuff to tell him, and he seemed distracted,” Comey said.

“He said he wanted to talk about Michael Flynn,” he continued, “and then in substance in that conversation he asked me, which I took as a direction, to let it go.”

“Obviously it’s evidence of obstruction of justice so how to handle that was something we struggled with and we decided to keep it tight,” Comey said, adding that he didn’t want to interfere with the ongoing investigation.

Here is part of that interview.

Comey added that if Trump wasn’t president, he believes he would be “in serious jeopardy of being charged.”

Taking things even further, Comey also advocated against re-electing Donald Trump in 2020.

“All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021,” Comey said, adding that no matter who the Democrats choose as their candidate, “they have to win.”

In typical Trump fashion, spelling mistakes and all, he lashed out with a vengeance. Trump retaliated on Monday morning, quoting Fox News saying that Democrats couldn’t find a “smocking” gun in Comey’s testimony to Congress on Friday, misspelling the word “smoking” on multiple occasions.

Having a president who can't spell is one thing, but having the former FBI Director come out and say to vote against Trump because the ‘lies' need to stop is another thing entirely.  Sadly, that's what our republic has come to, we have credited government telling us not to vote for our current president because he's simply too shady.
