Wise words about taking responsibility for who gets voted in/out of high office

02.05.18…..In an interview with ABC television, lawyer and 7th Director of the FBI, James Comey, (A Higher Loyalty, Flatiron Books, New York, 2018), made it clear he holds the American public responsible for ending the Trump presidency and that it is for them to eat crow (be humbled & shamed) rather than for any impeachment to happen.  On the eve of local elections in the UK (not in Brighton & Hove this year), it is a sage rebuke to people who don’t take responsibility for knowing enough about who they vote for and their true worth or who don’t vote at all.  He said this:

“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 need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values.”
