Shortly before ABC wrapped up their hour-long special interview on Sunday night with former FBI Director James Comey, Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos pressed Comey on whether or not President Trump was fit to be president and whether or not he needed to be impeached. The answers may or may not be surprising.
“Almost a year has passed since James Comey was fired by President Trump. Since then, he’s come to some stark conclusions about the use of power and moral leadership,” Stephanopoulos said as they were coming back from a commercial break. “You write that President Trump is unethical, untethered to the truth. Is Donald Trump unfit to be president?”
At first, Comey said “yes,” but clarified that he didn’t “buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia.” Ouch. That’s quite the blow to CNN’s Brian Stelter and how he thinks about the President. “He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who’s tracking conversations and knows what’s going on. I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president,” he added.
But people like Stelter were quickly redeemed as Comey asserted that Trump was “morally unfit to be President.” “A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they’re pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person’s not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds,” he said.
“There’s something more important than that that should unite all of us, and that is our president must embody respect and adhere to the values that are at the core of this country,” Comey continued. “The most important being truth. This president is not able to do that. He is morally unfit to be President.”
After asking Comey to elaborate on why Trump was unfit to be President, Stephanopoulos sought a solution from the former FBI head. “What is the remedy? Should Donald Trump be impeached,” he wondered.
According to Comey, the solution was not impeachment, but for the country to go to the polls and vote Trump out of office:

“I hope not because I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they’re duty bound to do directly. People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values.”
“But you cannot have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and Independents treasure,” Comey declared. “That is the core of this country. That’s our foundation. And so impeachment, in a way, would short-circuit that.”

So, Comey wants President Trump out of office.
