GOP establishment swamp Paul Ryan has nothing but good words about witch hunt special counsel Robert Mueller.
Paul Ryan spoke to Wisconsin-based radio host, Jay Weber on Monday and defended Mueller, who stacked his probe team with Hillary and Obama linked attorneys and whose law firm gave 99.81% of their campaign contributions to Hillary Clinton.
The Washington Examiner :
“Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican who was appointed by a Republican who served in the Republican administration who crossed over and stayed on ’til his term ended.”
“I don’t think many people are saying Bob Mueller is a biased partisan. He’s really, sort of, anything but,” Ryan continued.
“The point is we have an investigation in the House, an investigation in the Senate and a special counsel, which sort of de-politicizes this stuff and gets it out of the political theater, and that is, I think, better to get this off to the side,” Ryan said. “I think the facts will vindicate themselves, and then let’s just go do our jobs.”
Speaker Ryan was a never-Trumper and was caught in a leaked audio by Breitbart News telling House GOP during conference call last October that he would not defend President Trump, now or in the future.
ALREADY SNOWFLAKES EIGHT GRADERS TO PAUL RYAN DURING D.C. FIELD TRIP: NO PHOTO OP BECAUSE ‘WE ALL HATE YOU!’
- Snowflake in the making! Matthew Malespina, 13-years-old: ‘I would never take a picture with that man. Never. (But) Definitely, I would take a picture with Hillary Clinton‘
- Matthew Malespina immediately texted his librarian mother Elissa Elliott Malespina to tell her that he was so concerned meeting with Paul Ryan and she urged him to let the teachers know he was uncomfortable with it.
- “I can’t take a picture with someone who supports a budget that would destroy public education and would leave 23 million people without healthcare,” Matthew Malespina, a student at the school, told his local newspaper, The Village Green
Eight grade students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey were in Washington D.C. for a field trip when they get a ‘horrible’ news: House Speaker Paul Ryan is going to meet them!
So disturbed by the idea, Matthew Malespina, 13, immediately texted his librarian mother Elissa Elliott Malespina to tell her that he was so concerned and she urged him to let the teachers know he was uncomfortable with it.
“I can’t take a picture with someone who supports a budget that would destroy public education and would leave 23 million people without healthcare,” Matthew Malespina, a student at the school, told his local newspaper, The Village Green
And because of the disturbing situation, teachers did not force the students to take picture with Ryan, but only those who were willing. When Ryan emerged from the Capitol on Thursday, some students who had agreed to take part were gathered on the steps to have their photograph taken. The others were stood across the street with Ryan unaware that they had refused.
Matthew also ruled out ever posing with President Trump but enthusiastically said he’d have a snap taken with Hillary Clinton.
‘I would never take a picture with that man. Never. (But) Definitely, I would take a picture with Hillary Clinton,’ he said.
South Orange Middle School students in the same grade walked out of classes earlier in the year to protest against Trump’s inauguration.
On Facebook, his librarian mom Elissa Elliott Malespina posted: ‘So proud of Matthew!’
His mother also said:
‘I don’t think it was a sign of disrespect. I think it was a sign of peaceful protesting. A sign of disrespect would be to curse the guy off but he chose to not take a picture with a man who was clearly doing it for a photo-op. I think all of them were rather respectful.’
- Sandra Lee, the longtime girlfriend of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said “I was so angry I was shaking, and I never had that experience before in my life or on any show.”
( Breitbart ) Celebrity chef Sandra Lee says Speaker of the House Paul Ryan makes her sick to her stomach.
Lee had been scheduled to tape a cooking segment on Fox & Friends last week, and Ryan was reportedly asked to try the food. But the Food Network star says she didn’t want the Republican lawmaker anywhere near her.
“At first what occurred to me is that we are both from Wisconsin,” Lee told Page Six. “And I realized he is the one thing from Wisconsin that I cannot tolerate or stomach.”
“I just do not stand for anything he stands for,” she continued.
Lee, the longtime girlfriend of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said “I was so angry I was shaking, and I never had that experience before in my life or on any show.”
“I love Fox & Friends. That was the only time that happened to me,” she added. “I do not get angry for too long. He left the set, and I was back to Sandra Lee.”
While attending the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s Hot Pink Party on Friday, Lee told Page Six that she had “been really surprised about the reaction.”
“I think it is because I have never stated my opinion,” she told the outlet. “Just because I chose not to state my opinion does not mean I do not have one. When it comes to health care or childhood hunger issues, I am not going to be quiet, tolerant or silent about my experiences or my convictions.”
Via “>Varney and Co.
Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd blasted Speaker Paul Ryan for not funding President Trump’s border wall in this year’s budget.
Judd joined Stewart Varney this morning on Varney and Co.
Stewart Varney: There is a report this morning that Speaker Paul Ryan is suggesting that Congress delay border wall funding until next year. What do you say about that?
Brandon Judd: I disagree. President Trump promised he was going to secure the border and part of securing the border is putting in place the proper technology and resources that allows us to be successful. And a border wall in strategic locations is one of those things that must get done. President Trump has come in and has not politicized it. He’s said he’s going to secure the border, and he’s done exactly what he’s said he would do.”
‘Art of the Deal’: Healthcare Bill Failure a Way to Oust Paul Ryan and Achieve Full Repeal of Obamacare?…CHECKMATE!
‘Art of the Deal’ Healthcare Bill Failure a Way to Oust Paul Ryan and Achieve Full Repeal of Obamacare?
( Gateway Pundit by) Today, President Trump pulled the healthcare bill after it fell short of the votes needed to pass. The highly unpopular ‘Ryancare’ replacement of Obamacare left the Republicans divided.
Did Trump give Paul Ryan just enough rope to hang himself? It is no secret that Paul Ryan has contempt for President Trump and is working to sabotage him. This may Trump’s plan to have Paul Ryan ousted and replaced.
Breitbart also reported on an author who predicted this..
Exactly two weeks ago, this author predicted the defeat of the American Health Care Act – and explained it was a step towards the final, actual deal that will repeal and replace Obamacare.
President Donald Trump faces three irreconcilable factions: the GOP establishment, conservatives, and Democrats. He must bring them together — to “deliver the goods,” a key rule in The Art of the Deal. But first he must show them “the downside” — and convince them they will fail on their own.
So he let them make the first move — and he exposed two things about them: first, that they had not come up with a plan that was ready for prime time; second, that they had not done any of the political legwork necessary to sell their plan to voters.
Trump gave Speaker Paul Ryan and the House Republican leadership enough rope to hang themselves. Instead of dictating terms to him, they will now depend on him to save them, politically. They must accept whatever plan he will put forward.
But Trump will not make the next move. He will let the conservatives move first. They are the big winners in the first round — much more so than the Democrats, who are enjoying the spectacle of Republican dysfunction but have no role to play yet.
The conservatives will proceed with their demand for a full repeal of Obamacare. And then they will face the ire of voters who are deeply unhappy with Obamacare but upset about losing the paltry, expensive health insurance they currently have.
That, too, will strengthen Trump, and convince conservatives they need his leadership.
PAUL RYAN LEAKED AUDIO: “I am not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.”…Maybe he changed his mind?
A never-before released audio of Speaker Paul Ryan on a conference call with House Republican was revealed tonight: “I am not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.”…Maybe he changed his mind?
Breitbart with the exclusive report:
In the Oct. 10, 2016 call, from right after the Access Hollywood tape of Trump was leaked in the weeks leading up to the election, Ryan does not specify that he will never defend Trump on just the Access Hollywood tape—he says clearly he is done with Trump altogether.
“I am not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future,” Ryan says in the audio, obtained by Breitbart News and published here for the first time ever.
The October conference call apparently was intended only for House Republican members. It’s unclear which or how many House Republicans took part in the call, whether the participants knew it was being recorded, who made the recording, or whether a recording exists of the entire call. The remarks on the portion provided to Breitbart News certainly sound like they were coming from Speaker Ryan, who seemed to be abandoning his party’s presidential nominee altogether just weeks before the election. He says not only will he not defend the Access Hollywood comments, but he will not campaign with Trump at all between this call on Oct. 10, 2016, and the general election for the presidency on Nov. 8—and that Ryan would not defend Trump on anything generally.
