The Wall Street Journal on Friday called for FBI director James Comey to resign his post in the wake of a "long history of apparently political decisions," including his announcement 11 days before the 2016 presidential election that he was reopening an investigation into Hillary Clinton.

The newspaper's editorial echoes the demands of former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, former Sen. Al D'Amato, the New York Daily News and House Judiciary Democrat Steve Cohen who have also called for Comey to resign in recent months.

"The best service Mr. Comey can render his country now is to resign. Failing that, [Sen.] Jeff Sessions should invite him for a meeting after he is confirmed as Attorney General and ask him to resign," the Journal's editorial board wrote.

"If Mr. Comey declines, Donald Trump can and should fire him in the best interests of the nation's most important law enforcement agency …

"His actions reveal that he is willing to violate Justice Department procedure and standards for his own political purposes."
