EXCERPT:

WALLACE: "There was recently a New York Times article — I don’t want to summarize it, but you are standing in your living room in the picture. You talk about your life and what you want for the country and for the end of this presidency. Do you wanted to come sooner than later?"

COMEY: "Change in the administration? Yes. I am optimistic that even if there is not in impeachment proceeding, the American people are going to pass judgment on what kind of country we want to be. We have strong disagreement on policy grounds. I don’t care what your views are. Her pew articulate and defend and listen. That’s important. But we have something in common and I said it with the first question you asked. We have a set of values that hold this place together. I tried to explain to kids something that most of you know, we shouldn’t exist. We don’t have the normal human glue that holds a country together. Common ancestry, language, faith. We have nothing in common except a set of values. That is the glue that holds Republicans, Democrats, independents together. I think the American people are alert to the threat that is above our policy disagreements. Guns are important. Immigration, abortion, taxes. Above that is something we have in common. Our leaders cannot be people who lie all the time. They just can’t. I hope people see that is true whether they are Republicans or Democrats."
