Comey: 'The Republican Party has left me and many others'

Comey: 'The Republican Party has left me and many others'

Former FBI Director James Comey was a registered Republican for most of his life, but now he believes "the Republican Party has left me and many others."

"I just think they've lost their way and I can't be associated with it," Comey said in an interview on the ABC News podcast “Start Here,” adding that he no longer considers himself a Republican.

He said he believes the Republican Party began to change during the 2016 presidential campaign and has continued to change with President Donald Trump in office. It wasn't until he was fired by Trump that Comey started to focus more on politics and realized, "These people don't represent anything I believe in.”

He noted that the Republican National Committee launched a website dedicated to him: LyinComey.com. He said it served as “no better evidence” that the GOP had left him.

Stephanopoulos doesn't quite pose the "why not wait?" question directly to Comey, but Comey's thinking seems to have been influenced by concerns that pro-Trump elements within the FBI would leak word of the Weiner emails to the media.
