In a recent interview that aired on Sunday, a question was reportedly posed to former FBI Director James Comey regarding his opinions on the presidential race in 2024. Comey is known for being a vociferous critic of former President Donald Trump.
Psaki questioned Comey on his potential support for one of the Republican candidates running for president in 2024, making reference to the fact that Comey had been a lifelong Republican before to voting for Biden in 2020.
“It has to be Joe Biden,” Comey responded.
“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. 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 continued.
While former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy were already running for president, recent formal announcements of their candidacies for the presidency were made by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, both of whom are Republicans.
Comey, who was dismissed by Trump in 2017 while heading the FBI’s investigation of suspected Russian collusion with Trump’s campaign, stated in the interview that if Trump were to return to the White House, there would be “four years of a retribution presidency.”
Comey was fired by Trump in 2017 while leading the FBI’s investigation of alleged Russian collusion with Trump’s campaign.
