Former FBI Director Comey on Twitter: vote Democratic

Expert analysis of the Trump-Putin meeting

Comey's tweet comes as tensions continue to boil over in Washington, following President Donald Trump's extraordinary press briefing alongside his Russian counterpart in Helsinki on Monday.

"This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders" design that "Ambition must ... counteract ambition, '" Comey tweeted on Tuesday, quoting The Federalist Papers. "Policy differences don't matter right now. History has its eyes on us". "All who believe in this country's values must vote for Democrats this fall".

He said that though he has great confidence in the USA intelligence community, the Russian president gave a "strong and powerful" denial.

Comey's firing paved the way for the appointment of another former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, Robert Mueller, as special counsel directed to investigate allegations of Russian interference into the 2016 US election and interactions between foreign entities and the Trump campaign.

White House denies that Trump said Russian Federation no longer targeting U.S.
Mr Trump responded by talking about what he called a missing Democratic National Committee server. When we reviewed the IC we also believed there were some mistakes made by the IC", Ryan said.

What's more, the bordering village of "Al-Sousah" also accepted the terms of negotiations with government. The government is now in control of more than four-fifth of that province's territory, the monitor said .

Comey's tweet came one day after the US president took Vladimir Putin's side over allegations that Russian Federation interfered with the 2016 election. Despite admitting to it in an interview shortly after he ousted Comey that the "Russia thing" prompted his decision to fire Comey, Trump has since denied that rationale.

Comey has been a longtime Republican and served under Republican presidents, but he clearly signified that he was endorsing Democrats not out of support for their ideology but because he thought Trump was a greater threat to the Republic.

Analysis by FiveThirtyEight found that Comey's letter probably did cost Clinton the election, saying it probably shifted as much as three or four percentage points over to Trump.
