Paul Ryan Is A Coward

Paul Ryan Is A Coward

"I don't like the fact that you feel that way", he said.

Professor Miller went on to say Ryan will be one of about 30 Republicans not seeking re-election.

Ryan said that he did not think a bill to protect Mueller, which a bipartisan group of senators are pushing, would be necessary because the White House was not going to fire him.

If Democrats gain seats as expected in the November elections, Republican losses likely will fall most heavily among moderates representing swing districts.

Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.), chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee, told reporters he thinks Ryan may make a final push on entitlement reforms this year.

Broidy served on the finance committee with Cohen, who is now under criminal investigation for his business dealings . Both agreements had separate side letters that listed the real names of the parties, this person said.

Reacting to Ryan's looming exit, Trump hailed him as a good man, who legacy will live on.

As House Speaker, Ryan failed to speak out forcefully against Trump's reckless and divisive rhetoric and his chaotic presidency. If the party moves away from Trump, it will turn toward someone not too closely associated with him - and Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2012, would be one of a limited number of choices.

But his departure, at a time of upheaval in the administration, only highlights the disarray within the Republican Party as it faces a crucial election test in just over six months.

Brian Fitzgerald lives in Janesville and said Ryan's justification of spending more time with family is admirable.

On Ryan's pending retirement, Comstock said in a prepared statement that she has "been honored to know and work with Speaker Paul Ryan since our days as staffers on Capitol Hill through the Romney campaign to Congress". Ryan said his focus on tackling poverty had been pushed to the wayside because of his "busy day job".

The discussions come as Trump's newest national security adviser, John Bolton, stepped into the job this week. Early Wednesday, Trump tweeted: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria ".

Also on Wednesday: President Trump tells Russian Federation to "get ready" for a Syria strike, while a new report finds his lawyer's Federal Bureau of Investigation raid had ties to Trump's Access Hollywood tape.

Ryan announced he would not seek re-election in 2018 and would be giving up the speakership.

Republican strategist Steve Schmidt wrote in a tweet that "Paul Ryan's monument will be the putrid and smoldering ruins of the Republican Party and conservative movement that he betrayed with his complicity and cowardice".

When pressed about Trump, Ryan said that they had agreed on an agenda, but wouldn't say definitively whether they shared a vision for the GOP. And I've gotten much of what I came here to do done.

GREENE: You know, we've been talking a lot yesterday about the president's tweets about Syria and Russian Federation, taunting Russia about what Russian Federation might do if the USA ends up carrying out a military attack this morning. "But we have a lot of strong Republicans running in contested races", he said. In addition to serving on the House Budget and Banking committees together, I consider Paul a good friend and speak with certainty in saying he is a terrific public servant, husband, and father. But in terms of the president's priorities, don't forget there's no more big legislative initiatives on board for the rest of the year.
