Comey on Impeachment: Voters 'Would Be Left Off the Hook'

Former FBI Director James Comey says he does not support Congress impeaching President Donald Trump, saying the "American people would be left off the hook."

"As a citizen, I kind of hope [Trump is not impeached] because I think the American people would be let off the hook if Donald Trump were impeached and removed from office," he told California radio station KCRA. "And a lot of his supporters would think some sort of coup had taken place."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is expected to announce Tuesday the House is launching a formal inquiry into the impeachment of Trump, a move that comes in response to allegations the president sought to enlist a foreign power for his own political gain.

Comey said the public needs to "take responsibility" and vote to decide whether Trump should continue as president.

"We need an inflection point," Comey said. "An impeachment would deprive us of that, and we need to show what we stand for."
