Disgraced former FBI chief James Comey has officially endorsed Joe Biden for re-election, claiming Donald Trump poses grave dangers to the US Constitution and the rule of law.
“It has to be Joe Biden,” Comey said.
“And I’m glad he’s willing to serve. It has to be somebody committed to the rule of law, committed to the values of this country,” he continued. “And I’m not talking about policy. People can disagree about policy. There are things above those disagreements that all of us should think about the same way. The president must be someone who abides the law and our Constitution. And there’s no one else but Joe Biden.
“He could order the prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies. I’m sure I’m on the enemies list,” Comey alleged. “Because the president constitutionally does oversee the executive branch entirely, which includes the Department of Justice, prosecutors and investigators. And so he could commission, direct that individuals be pursued. He could also direct all types of other conduct that people would maybe take to court to try to stop – but who enforces court orders?”
