Scarborough: 'God Bless Paul Ryan for Speaking Out' Against Trump's Pardon Claim

Scarborough: 'God Bless Paul Ryan for Speaking Out' Against Trump's Pardon Claim

In a joint statement, the four Democrats who attended said "there is no evidence to support any allegation that the Federal Bureau of Investigation or any intelligence agency placed a "spy" in the Trump Campaign, or otherwise failed to follow appropriate procedures and protocols".

After the "Morning Joe" host praised Ryan for backing the "rule of law", MSNBC analyst John Heilemann poured cold water on Scarborough's celebration of the house speaker, saying: "Guys, I just want to - can I just - let's not give Paul Ryan too much credit", noting that Ryan seemed to just be echoing Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani's point that he shouldn't pardon himself because it would be bad politically.

Mr. Ryan backed Representative Trey Gowdy, Republican of SC, who pursued Hillary Clinton as the chairman of a special select committee on the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, but infuriated some Republican partisans by rebuffing Mr. Trump on "Spygate". But in a release, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr said the committee is cooperating with the department.

First lady to attend Trump's hurricane briefing Wednesday
Her last appearance in an official capacity was on May 10, welcoming back three Americans imprisoned by North Korea. The president literally pointed at a window, indicating the presence of the first lady, but ... she wasn't there.

The official said they are prepared to "brief members on certain questions specifically raised by Ryan and other members". Gowdy, from SC, and the House Oversight Committee chairman, said last month's briefing persuaded him the FBI's actions were appropriate.

Dobbs then launched into a tirade against Ryan, asking why Republicans don't say, "Mr". But they eventually relented after pressure from Trump, Nunes and Ryan.

Trump has denied he colluded with the Russians, obstructed justice or committed any wrongdoing, and repeatedly calls Mueller's investigation a "witch-hunt". Lame Duck Speaker: "Get the hell out of the office, you're going to send us to perdition and destruction in the midterm elections". We're waiting for some more document requests.

The FBI was looking into Russian interference in the United States election and that line of inquiry led them to Trump, he said.

According to a senior DOJ official's statement to Politico, this latter group, consisting of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, will reconvene on Monday or Tuesday to receive additional documents.

He said the department had brought documents to the previous briefing, but "I didn't need to look at them because I knew what they were".
