James Comey: We Must Hold Trump Accountable Because ‘This is Unacceptable Behavior’

During an interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace in New York City on Sunday, former FBI Director James Comey said the people must hold President Donald Trump accountable.

“The people that can hold him accountable for that is us,” Comey said. That’s not the Department of Justice’s job. That’s our job. Not to become numb to it and to stand up and participate in holding him accountable to those norms.”

He continued on: “I think of the American voting population as a giant bell curve. At the wings are where the wingnuts are,  in the middle are mostly people unengaged, that giant is awakening because of things like this and we have to continue to awaken the giant so we’re going to have an election in less than two years, we must hold him accountable.”

Comey then said this: “It’s not a Republican thing or it’s a Democratic thing, it’s an American thing because this is unacceptable behavior the leader of our country.”

Comey then said he only thought about running for office long enough to know he doesn’t want to do it.
