Despite the growing accusations against President Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan still believes in President Donald Trump. Ryan’s view came just 48 hours after the President went through several issues that seriously threaten his presidency.
Ryan commented “I do” when asked if he still had confidence in Donald Trump. His remarks, although small, offer an active shield because they came from such a high profile Republican. The statement was invaluable considering the President has been under fire by both republicans and democrats.
Both parties got on Trump’s case after a source released information stating that Comey wrote a note that said Trump asked him to “move on” from the Flynn investigation. While the note clearly upset Republicans and Democrats, Ryan told reporters that he wouldn’t judge the memo until he had the facts:
“The last thing I’m going to do is pre-judge anything. I’m a person who wants to get the facts.”
Ryan mimics much of that following statement during a closed-door meeting with House Republicans on Wednesday:
“We should take our oversight responsibilities seriously regardless of who is in power. That means before leaping to judgment we get all the facts. (The oversight and government reform committee) has requested documents. And we’ll see where the facts lead.”
Ryan did offer a slight indication that they were looking into the issues stating that finding accurate facts “obviously takes some time” and that the House isn’t “trying to play the crowd or meet timelines.” You can watch his remarks below:
