In a new interview with The Guardian, former FBI Director James Comey argues “the Republican party needs to be burned down or changed.”
“The Republican party needs to be burned down or changed,” Comey says. “Something is shifting, and I’m hoping it’s the fault breaking apart, a break between the Trumpists and those people who want to try and build a responsible conservative party, because everybody should know that we need one. Who would want to be part of an organization that at its core is built on lies and racism and know-nothingism? It’s just not a healthy political organization.”
Comey compared the the Capitol riot to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, accusing Trump of attacking it “to weaken its foundation” and then setting up a radioactive disaster.
“That’s what you saw on Capitol Hill, “Comey said “our own Chernobyl, when the ugly radioactive violence and racism of America explodes in public view.”
