On April Fool’s Day, Comey tweets ‘I’m in’ for 2020
Fired FBI Director James Comey seemed to confirm a presidential bid Monday, taking to Twitter on April 1 April Fool’s Day to say “I’m in,” and tagging his post ”#2020.”“We need someone in the middle,” Mr. Comey said in his tweet, which came alongside a photo of him standing in the middle of a two-lane country road, facing away from the camera.

The time of the post immediately raised questions about his seriousness.Yet the post gave no hint of irony and copied a style he used last month to question the release of the special counsel’s report.
