Paul Ryan Contradicts Donald Trump on Spygate and the Federal Bureau of Investigation

A number of prominent Republicans had responded to Trump's claim prior to Ryan.

Ryan's comments align him with the House Intelligence Committee Republican report on the Russian Federation investigation, in which the GOP lawmakers said they uncovered no evidence of collusion between Trump's team and Russian Federation, just some bad judgment.

Democrats also have eyed the Trump legal team warily.

On Wednesday, Ryan said he agreed with House Oversight and Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that there is no evidence of a planted spy. Another source briefed on the meeting said officials brought a stack of documents to the table that were left untouched. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., demanded documents on the informant and its contact with Trump campaign officials, while Trump dubbed the matter "spygate" and said it was "starting to look like one of the biggest political scandals in USA history".

"It would have been helpful if we'd gotten this information earlier", Ryan added.

The FBI did use an informant who approached a trio of Trump campaign aides over their ties to Russian Federation.

Gaetz concluded saying that he was hearing for the first time from his colleagues in the Congress that they might need to replace Ryan as the House Speaker. Gowdy, once celebrated as the head of the House's Benghazi investigation, has been viciously attacked by fellow Republicans for pouring cold water on Spygate.

Ryan said Thursday that next week is not soon enough. The Gang of Eight - a group of lawmakers that includes the Republican and Democratic leadership in the House and Senate, as well as the top Republicans and Democrats on the Intelligence committees - was given the same briefing later that afternoon.

Compare that with Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Okeechobee, a member of the House Intelligence Committee. Rooney, who has served three terms in office and is not seeking re-election in November, told Politico on Wednesday.

"I don't know how you can reach that conclusion based on the history of the FBI", Jordan told The Hill. Yes", Giuliani said. "Is he going to do it? No. Conservatives are demanding a vote on a much harsher bill and nothing else, and they're blaming Ryan for failing to stop the moderates. Nunes declined to comment Wednesday. The official said they would provide new materials and also "the documents that were available for review but not inspected by the members at the previous briefing".

Dobbs then launched into a tirade against Ryan, asking why Republicans don't say, "Mr". "We are not going to budge".

"Let me just tell you that from - from my perspective - I don't think the president needs any advice on pardoning himself", McConnell said.

Trump's suggestion that he could legally pardon himself followed a New York Times report on Saturday that his personal lawyers argued in a memo to Mueller that the president could not have obstructed justice because he has vast authority over all federal investigations.
