The Democratic National Committee will vote later this month on a resolution to condemn the ABC show, ‘Designated Survivor,’ according to a document the Wall Street Journal‘s Reid Epstein tweeted Wednesday.
The resolution accuses the show of portraying a “fictional FBI director as being blackmailed into confessing to a crime he did not commit.” It mocks FBI Director James Comey by saying he “demonstrated in the recent 2016 election that he does not need to be blackmailed to engage in illegal partisan actions.”

“The portrayal of this situation is unbelievable and could result in the undermining of faith in the FBI,” the statement reads.
Democrats are angry with Comey for having considered bringing charges against former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and for what they consider an inefficient investigation into Trump’s former national security advisor’s relationship with Russia.
“Be it resolved, that all US citizens are encouraged to have the same respect for the FBI as Director Comey demonstrated with his illegal actions,” the resolution concludes.
