Paul Ryan excuses Trump’s questionable discussions with Comey because the president is ‘just new to this’ from TheWeek.com
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) claimed Thursday that President Trump just didn’t know any better than to talk to former FBI Director James Comey about the ongoing investigation into his team’s ties to Russia’s election meddling.
MY PERSONAL POINT OF VIEW: PAUL RYAN – AS WELL AS MCCONNELL AND ALMOST ALL GOP MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE AND SENATE – HAVE DISPLAYED BEHAVIORS AND MADE COMMENTS THAT LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THEIR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY IS THE GOP AND THEIR AGENDA.
THEY FADE INTO THE BACKGROUND AND SAY ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S CHAOS AND INCOMPETENCE AND THE ONGOING INVESTIGATIONS. UNLESS OF COURSE THERE’S POLITICAL PRESSURE TO DO SO. PAUL RYAN’S EXCUSES ARE EXACTLY WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. THEY SAY ENOUGH TO PRETEND THEY “SUPPORT” TRUMP BUT THAT’S IT. THEY’VE PUT THEIR SELFISH INTERESTS AND THOSE OF THE GOP AHEAD OF WHAT’S BEST FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
I HOPE AND PRAY THEY LOSE THEIR ASSES IN THE NEXT ELECTION CYCLE.
