Via The Hill:
Former FBI Director James Comey in a new interview railed against the Republican Party, saying he thinks the GOP has lost its way.
“The Republican Party has left me and many others,” Comey, who was a registered Republican for most of his life, said during an interview on the ABC News podcast “Start Here” when asked whether he still considers himself a Republican in his “heart of hearts.”
“I just think they’ve lost their way and I can’t be associated with it.”
Comey said he saw the change in the party take place starting with President Trump‘s campaign. He said the GOP has continued to change over the course of the Trump presidency.
“These people don’t represent anything that I believe in,” he said.
He added that he thinks the Republican Party now reflects “entirely Donald Trump’s values.”
