NEW YORK - Former FBI Director James Comey is urging Americans to vote President Donald Trump out of office in the 2020 election.
Comey sat down with Moderator Nicole Wallace of MSNBC at the 92nd Street Y on Sunday.
The two discussed President Trump's tweets, the Mueller Investigation and the president's possible second term.
The moderated event comes after Comey testified in front of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees Friday in connection to the Mueller Investigation.
During the conversation, Comey said he is not sure what will happen with the release of memos from the investigation.
"I can't see what the end of the Mueller effort looks like. I don't know what form it will take, I don't know what they'll conclude, so I can't say in that respect. I can tell you that all of us should use every breath we have to make sure that the lying stops on January 20, 2021," Comey said.
When it comes to possibly removing Trump from office, Comey said that decision should be left to the American people.
"I hope Donald Trump is not removed from office by impeachment because it would let the country off the hook. And it would drive into the fabric of our nation a third of the people believing there was a coup. And we need a moment of inflection where we all get off the couch and say, 'That is not who we are,' and in a landslide rid ourselves of this attack on our values," Comey added.
He went on to say Democrats should work together to nominate a person best suited to defeat Trump in 2020.
