Much has changed in the past four years and many of the people who were once close to the president have become White House exiles and criticized the administration. And some of them were on Twitter on the morning of Election Day to urge Americans to get to the polls for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Michael Cohen, who spent years as President Donald Trump’s personal attorney and was sent to prison in part because of his work under Trump posted a photo of himself with his “I Voted” sticker and wrote, “Guess what I did this morning … bright and early,” he tagged both Democratic nominee Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the tweet.
Cohen turned on Trump in the Summer of 2018 as he was caught in the middle of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. In August of 2018, Trump’s layer for over a decade pleaded guilty to federal charges. Upon leaving prison, he told reporters, “There’s so much I want to say.” He has since written a tell-all book and announced plans to launch a podcast.

Former FBI Director James Comey played a pivotal role in the 2016 election after he announced less than two weeks before the election that the FBI was reviewing Hillary Clinton’s emails. And on Tuesday morning, Comey posted a photo of himself in a Biden/Harris shirt and tweeted, “Vote for your country.”

Also on the morning of the election, former Trump administration official Miles Taylor — who recently announced that he was the author of the famous “anonymous” New York Times editorial and a book — tweeted, “Closing argument: 230,000+ American lives lost. Vote him out.”

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci tweeted a link to a New York Times article and added, “He has hurt us. Let’s send him home today.”
Americans will not know the results of the election until at least Tuesday night, though the results could also not be known on Election Day.
