A former Hillary Clinton spokesman issued a savage response to James B. Comey on Twitter Wednesday after the fired FBI director called on Americans to “vote for Democrats” this November.

“Democrats don’t want your endorsement, but thanks,” Brian Fallon, a CNN commentator who served as Mrs. Clinton’s national press secretary during her 2016 presidential campaign, tweeted to his 155,000 followers on Wednesday.

Mr. Fallon was responding to a tweet late Tuesday by Mr. Comey, a former Republican, that called on people to vote Democratic in order to preserve America’s values.

“This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’ ” Mr. Comey wrote. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us.”

Democratic strategist and former Clinton campaign aide Zac Petkanas similarly sneered at Mr. Comey’s message.

“Dear @Comey — We don’t want you. Sincerely, The Democratic Party,” he wrote.

Mrs. Clinton and her supporters remain bitter toward Mr. Comey for announcing he was reopening the investigation into her email server less than two weeks before the 2016 election. The twice-failed presidential candidate has repeatedly blamed the former FBI director for her loss to President Trump.
