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

Speaker Ryan Dismisses Trump’s Charges of a Spy in his Campaign

Trump, without offering any evidence, has repeatedly alleged on Twitter that the Justice Department planted a spy inside his presidential campaign. "Maybe it's just to create more chaos but it doesn't really help the case".

"This is Russian Federation and what they did and making sure they don't do it again and about us, Congress, the elected representative branch of government, conducting very legitimate oversight over the appointed executive branch of government, and we expect them to comply with all of our oversight requests because that is how good government works", he added.

Democrats have charged that the GOP's complaints with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department are all part of an orchestrated campaign to help the White House discredit the origins of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's probe of alleged links between Trump and Kremlin officials. We're waiting for some more document requests. After Ryan's remarks, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr - who was briefed with Ryan and other top lawmakers on the informant last month - said Gowdy's analysis was correct.

You can't have miscommunication, you can't have flaws ... because they're going to make you pay". They needed 27 starting lineups in the regular season, and five so far in the playoffs.

"At least we know that the third most powerful constitutional law officer of the United States of America does not believe that", he added.

Ryan also responded to a question about Trump's recent assertion that he has an "absolute right" to pardon himself if it were necessary - which he says it wouldn't be, because "I have done nothing wrong". He went on to concede that although he does not know the "technical" answer to the question of whether a president can self-pardon, Trump "obviously" shouldn't do so.

The Democrats are now alluding to the the concept that having an Informant placed in an opposing party's campaign is different than having a Spy, as illegal as that may be. "President Trump and Russia", Ryan said at his weekly news conference.

Speaker Ryan doubled-down on Gowdy's statement Wednesday, saying "I think Chairman Gowdy's initial assessment is accurate..."

Trump's lawyers in the Mueller probe have also taken advantage of the back and forth, with Rudy Giuliani telling The Associated Press on Thursday that Trump won't do an interview in Mueller's investigation unless they see the documents themselves.

On Trump's orders, the Department of Justice conducted two briefings for a handful of members of Congress after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., had asked for documents concerning the informant.
