Speaker Paul Ryan just betrayed Donald Trump with this comment

House Speaker Paul Ryan has never been a fan of President Trump.

While Ryan is retiring at the end of his current term, many Republicans feel that isn’t soon enough.

And that makes his latest betrayal of President Trump all the harder to stomach.

The FBI had a spy in Donald Trump’s campaign.


But “Spygate,” a story of Deep State corruption that many believe is worse than Watergate, has been watered-down by semantics.

First Trey Gowdy muddied the waters by insisting on national television that Trump was never the “target” of the FBI’s investigation.

Even the National Review, a paper that harbors little love for President Trump, was quick to point out that was a merely a dodge, writing:

[Gowdy’s] digression about “targets” is gibberish. Since the Obama administration was using its counterintelligence powers (FISA surveillance, national-security letters, unmasking identities in intelligence reporting, all bolstered by the use of at least one covert informant), the political-spying issue boils down to whether the Trump campaign was being monitored. Whether Trump himself was apt to be indicted, and whether threats posed by Russia were the FBI’s focus, are beside the point; in a counterintelligence case, an indictment is never the objective, and a foreign power is always the focus.

But Gowdy’s attempt to undercut the story to protect Mueller’s investigation had largely faded from the news, until Speaker Ryan stepped in to pour gasoline on the fire.


National Review reports:

House speaker Paul Ryan undercut President Trump’s “Spygate” accusation Wednesday, saying he’s seen “no evidence” to support the notion that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign for political purposes.

“I think Chairman Gowdy’s initial assessment is accurate,” Ryan told reporters on Capitol Hill. “I have seen no evidence to the contrary of the initial assessment Chairman Gowdy has made.”

Trump’s allies fumed, as Politico reports:

“Once again, this is Speaker Ryan being unhelpful to the Republican efforts to keep control of the House and pick up Senate seats,” said one former top Trump campaign official who keeps in touch with Trump. “He needs to go … now.”
….
“There is no defense today for Paul Ryan siding with the FBI and Department of Justice against those of us in the Congress fighting for transparency and accountability,” [Rep. Matt] Gaetz said. “We need the speaker to be an institutionalist for the Congress, not to be a defender of the deep state.”
….
Asked about Ryan’s news conference, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), a top Trump ally and Russia probe critic, said he planned to speak with Ryan about it personally, though he wouldn’t go into details. And Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) was dismissive of the speaker’s implicit defense of the FBI.

“We’re supposed to trust the FBI now? The same FBI that we’ve caught, literally caught, hiding information?” Jordan said. “Come on.”

  1. Ryan has become a loser. It is good he is retiring. He will be remembered for what he has done and said. His ABSENCE OF support of Trump WHO WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT BY THE PEOPLE is Ryan’s mistake.

  2. The FBI was meant to address illegal activities committed by US citizenry, presumably within the borders of the USA. Other federal departtments were given the responsibility of tracking FOREIGN citizenry acting either in foreign countries or in the USA, attempting to do exploits that would be injurious to the welfare of the USA. For the FBI to claim that they inserted an “observer” into Trump’s team in order to ensure that the Russians were not attempting to influence the election means that they were exceeding their authority OR they were trying to find something to be used to impeach Trump. Either way their actions were/are illegal.

    • Mr. RYAN has been a “FLIP-FLOP” artist since President Trump took office, and I would never trust him EVER! He has been a thorn in one of President Trump’s shoe.

    • Paul Ryan is a OBANA / Clinton administration clone , and , anti American looser , his district is just across the Chicago / Racine Wisconsin border and totally relying on Chicagos white collar jobs market , he ryan and mcconnellhave CONTINEOUSLY UNDEMINED PRESIDENT TRUMPS MAKE AMERICA GREAT PROGRAM , JUST LIKE ROMNEY FROM UTAH NOW , ROMNEY WAS A VIETNAM DRAFT DODGER LIVING IN A MANSION IN FRANCE WITH SERVENTS WHILE OUR AMERICAN TROOPS WERE EATING C RATIONS IN THE RICE FIELDS GETTING SHOT AT !!! Ryan was just paid $100 millions plus from the Koch PAC Ryan should step down as speaker and mcconnell from majority leader !!!!

  3. For all you swamp watchers..this is for your attention. As you know, Paul Ryan has been swimming in the swamp for a long time. Every so often he pops up with algae all over his face. But now…he has a buddy. The swamp creature’s name is Trey Gowdy. He just became visible with muck and algae all over his face.
    To me, they can’t pull the plug that drains the swamp fast enough.
    When the swamp has been totally drained, it will be really interesting to see the
    swamp creatures in their totality.
    Question please…..where is BIGFOOT when you need him?

    • HaHA HAAA Sledge. aka reporting ‘Sludge’.
      Algae comment is priceless.
      ps. off topic, butt, Are U aware of Bolton
      calling for ‘no more dollar’ (in short).
      > Somehow/ Someway POTUS NEEDS Rid of BOLTON.
      a True Algae Swampee that ‘managed’ to get
      in WH After McMaster was relieved of ‘duty’???
      > V. Serious ‘stuff’.(re Bolton & Access)
      > Also, fyi & e’one else – Sec.of STATE POMPEO,
      NOT on the Same page as Bolton. Not even close.
      Pompeo’s breifing w/ Sanders Was a Total ‘tell all’.
      – Hope ppl here Heard it.

    • 2x try. RR block. in short. Priceless comment
      re Algae ‘SLUDGE’. off topic. re Bolton, fyi
      Bolton wants ‘dollar dropped’. At odds w/ Pompeo.
      Pompeo tells all w/ Sarah, press briefing.
      >Hope this gets thru this x.

    • Paul Ryan needs to be sucked up a vacumn
      And saved for disposal to use as a going away present for him
      When he is gone, maybe such as a wreath!
      Most people will agree.

      • Paul Ryan is a snake in the grass and has been ever since he became speaker. Why can’t they get rid of him. He is a democrat acting like he was a republican.

  4. Send him home to his family now do not give any more time to screw up the Gop he is and has been part of the swamp all along

  5. Paul Ryan works for the “deep state” not the people; why would anyone not expect him to sell out Trump at every reasonable opportunity.

  6. Paul Ryan is the puppet of Obama. He is a despicable, disgusting, disgrace to the Office, and this Country. The corrupt, lying traitor should be arrested and in prison
    for life. I never liked him, never trusted him, now hate him. Hope he is arrested with
    Brennan, Rosenstein, Mueller, Comey, Clapper, Lynch, McCabe, McCain, Graham, McConnell
    and others involved should all be locked up.

      • Gary, talkin’ re snakes/&backsides – saw photo
        of ‘snake biting man’ even tho snake Head Cut Off !
        > 0u. So, ppl snakes ‘could’ Be the Same. Looks like it.

    • Paul Ryan,so many have proven they are part of the Deep State, Ryan has shown his connections to being part of said Corruption.

      • I think the people on here have a really good take on who is swamp and needs to be sucked down the drain when President Trump pulls the plug..Thank you all for speaking the truth! It feels good to know others feel as I do..THANKS

    • I agree Holly, but what I want to know, is how all these democrats/rino’s infiltrated the GOP? Seems like a lot of our leaders are coming out as traiters. I would love to see an investigation into the backgrounds of these guys. McCain, Ryan, McConnell, Mueller,Comey. The GOP owes the party an explanation.

  7. GOWDY AND RYAN NEED TO GET REALISTIC. ANYONE WHO TRUSTS MUELLER OR THE FBI OR DOJ NEEDS TO GETTHRIE HEADS OUT OF THEIR B___S

  8. GOWDY AND RYAN NEED TO GET REALISTIC. ANYONE WHO TRUSTS MUELLER OR THE FBI OR DOJ NEEDS TO GETTHRIE HEADS OUT OF THEIR B___S

  9. Glad this joker is retiring! He sure had me fooled when he was on the ticket for Vice President. But they all show their true colors sooner or later. Paul “Ryno” is no friend of the president or the american people. We can only hope the good people of Wisconsin replace him with a true conservative that will back Prez Trump. Good bye Paul, have a great retirement on the tax payers!

  10. From what I’ve gleaned in all the garbage of information . . . . Clinton and Obama we’re neck-deep with an infiltration of the Trump campaign, wanting any bit of information to bring Trump down! Having no real ‘silver bullet’, they decided to make one themselves . . . and this is where the ‘Russian Collusion’ idea first came into being (…a direct lie made outta air to taint Trumps image…)! The ‘Deep State’ shows it’s underbelly in this action and, through the actions of Obama, also showed that Clinton would just be another Obama if she won! Everything afterwards has also shown just how biased the main-stream news really is in how they have done everything they can to bring Trump down sense his win!

    Today, we can’t trust the news we get from the big name shows . . . they have given real substance to the title “TV Programming” for they are trying to program our minds to think a certain way about Trump! (…and other things too…) Congress is trying to steal away our only source of truth by this ‘Net Neutrality’ Bill . . . which will give government the ability to censor what is put out over the internet, thus killing our one true means of getting to the truth!!! Get your Congressman/woman on the phone and DEMAND the end of this Bill!!!

  11. Paul Ryan is just another McCain …. and part of the Swamp Scum!! They should of gotten rid of this idiot from the very start!! Just another Democrat dressed in Republicans clothing!!

  12. Ryan is a traitor and a low life and should be OUT NOW!!!! He is nauseous!! I cannot stand the sight of him and want the honorable republicans to GET HIM OUT!!

    • WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES TO VOTE OUT COME NOV 2018,THE ENTIRE LYING CORRUPT, TREASONOUS, DEMOCRAT PARTY, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT END THE WASHINGTON PEDOPHILIA

    • I agree 100% but he’s not the only one John McCain needs to go also. We need to elect people who support our great president.

    • I agree with you. However, there are at least 60 RINOs in the House that also need to go. How else do we continue to get Speakers like Boehner and Ryan. We need Republicans who support the president, otherwise he will never get his agenda passed. When you have the majority of Republicans in the House and Senate who hate our president, how can he get the best policies for the country passed? There must now be an effort to force Ryan and Gowdy to go early because they are undermining everything the president wants to do.

      • U should’ve Heard ‘what’ Boehner (half-looped)
        Said in Mi. a few wks ago. Can’t quote, but
        Left a ‘bad taste’ in mouth.

  13. Let’s not exclude McConnell, the Senate Backstabber, who gave obama everything he lied about. Take lyingRyan and his daddy McConnell out of the Trump Picture. Maybe they both still report to the leader of the COUP, to topple President Trump. Oust them.

  14. It’s known that Ryan, is only staying on to secure obama’s dream of bringing amnesty for illegals, lawbreakers, who have cut the line ahead of those who wish to be citizens legally with pride in their new citizenship. Help us rid ourselves of illegals and PAUL JUDAS RYAN, ship them out and oust RYAN!!

    • Just how my immigrant wife feels (got her citizenship on Feb 20th, this year). She comes from the Philippines and has/had trouble figuring out what these Illegal Aliens were trying to accomplish

      • Congratulations to your wife and your family for adding a new proud American citizen to our country, wishing you the best luck chasing your American Dream!

  15. RYAN THE REPUBLICAN BASTARD HAS TO BE REPLACED NOW BEFORE THE MID TERM ELECTIONS TO SAVE THE PARTY! NOTHING BUT A GRINNING BACK STABBER AND NOTHING MORE! USELESS TO THE CORE!

    • I hope WI votes in Paul Nehlen as Ryan’s replacement. He’s a Trump man, though in 2016 Trump endorsed Ryan…

  16. Paul Ryan has been nothing but a Maggot, a accomplice of John Boehner, who was a obama confidant. I never supported Ryan and have wished for his elimination as House Speaker, he is more treacherous now that he has teamed up with Trey Gowdy, both stooges of the Establishment and not to be trusted in anything they say. Many of us feel that he has been a hidden threat to President Trump and now he has proven his colors. GET RID OF THE SWAMP DWELLERS, THEY ARE POISON TO THE COUNTRY!!!! President Trump distance yourself from this treacherous duo, expose them for what they are,backstabbers.

    • Sorry folks , an earlier post I had placed to people of South Carolina said to vote for Trey Gowdy. My mistake ! I thought he was on our side, along with Mr. Trump.

  17. Deep State traitors are everywhere!!The liberal demoncrat Nazi’s party at work here!Don’t forget the RINOs (Ryan, Gowdy, McShame , McConnell, Rubio , Romney, Sessions, Grahams etc..,) they’re just as bad! Drain the rat infested Swamp ASAP, President Trump!

    • I really agree with you. Paul Ryan is a traitor to our country. The Nazi Dems are at work and Ryan the rest them go right along what the Dems.

  18. Paul Ryan is, and always has been a sorry piece of crap, as far as governments goes. I don’t understand why the entire House of Representatives don’t just throw him under the bus and put Rep Jim Jenkins in as Speaker. It would be so easy, and we could all start to see some results from the House. It would not surprise me one bit to find out that Ryan was a leader in the Communist Deep State. I pray daily that more and more of those Hate America Communist Swamp critters, either quit or gets beat in November.
    What a truly Great America we would have then. President Trump could continue to MAGA
    without the Hate America crowd getting in the way.

  19. Ryan is most of the time a RINO. He is “establishment”, big time. Too bad he ever got to any position of power. TREM LIMITS.
    Get feeling he is McCain lite. Never trumper POS.
    Sad ALL the scum in Congress can’t be TOTALLY stripped of ALL perks, including pensions and medical care.

  20. With the exception of Newt, the recent list of Speakers reminds me of Aretha Franklin’s hit, ‘Chain of Fools’. Since Tip O’Neil we’ve had to suffer through Ft Worthless Jim Wright, Tom Foley, Dennis Hastert, San Fran Nan, Orangeman Boehner and now his accolyte, Paul Ryan…….a rogues gallery of ‘Swamp’ dwellers and in the case of Hastert, a convicted sexual pervert! The Senate Majority leaders have not been much better. The Dems gave us Tom Dashle and Dingy Harry Reid. The Republicans have offered Trent Lott and Mitch McConnell. As of late, McConnell has gotten better. You just have to remember, all Senators think they should or could be POTUS. Their egos are huge.

    • I agree with you 100%. Never did like Ryan and can’t wait till he is out of there for good. I am disappointed in Gowdy too.

  21. Ryan has been betraying Trump from the moment Trump announced! And Ryan has been betraying America for a long, long time.

  22. Speaker Paul Ryan is doing more to help the Democrats to recover power, then he is doing more to help the Republicans to keep power in all houses and the White House. If Paul Ryan is not going to do his job to help with President Trump’s getting passed and fulfilled, then he needs to retire now, instead of waiting until the first of the 2019 year.

    I would like to see Rep. Jim Jordan, or Rep. Kevin McCarthy take over as the new Speaker of the House. Get Paul Ryan out A.S.A.P. We need someone that is going to support President Trump and his agenda and his administration.

  23. Let all the Rats desert the ship, then maybe we can cure the plague we have brought on ourselves by reelecting this self serving scum. MAGA, OR ELSE!!!

  24. I HAVEN’T TRUSTED PAUL RYAN SINCE I FIRST STARTED SEEING AND HEARING HIM…..HE TALKS OUT OF BOTH SIDES OF HIS MOUTH AND JUST CAN’T SEEM TO MAKE A DECISION I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY HE IS STILL THERE WHEN SO MANY OTHERS THAT PROVED THEMSELVES TO NOT BE TRUSTWORTHY ARE GONE……I BELIEVE THINGS WILL BE MUCH BETTER WHEN HE’S GONE…..

    • Totally agree with Brenda. I’m a South Carolinian who liked Gowdy until recently. He and Ryan need to go now or at least stop appearing on TV or speak in any form

  25. Since Trump became president he brought everybody out of the “woodwork ” speaker Paul Ryan and Trey Gowdy I knew they were part of the establishment but delete his comments were very very disappointing to say the least can’t wait to see them leave Congress

  26. They are all the same….. they talk big before they come to D.C. then they get inside the beltway and contract the liberal sickness…. Ya know real people with back bone don’t chg when they come to D.C. … they stand up for us regular folks which exactly what the Prez has been doing….and look at who fights him…..the fakes who spout their crap

  27. Trey Gowdy what happened to you!? Did the deep state threaten your family or career? Something did for you to come out and say this so quickly what will happen when the IG report comes out same thing there? everyone is innocent and the FBI did no wrong i presume? All one big happy family even though there is overwhelming evidence? Trey you really disappoint me and I have been a long time fan because I thought you were one of the ones in search of blind justice!?

  28. Ryan has shown his true colors many times in the past. This latest betrayal should not surprise anyone. He was in on the Trans Pacific Partnership and the payoff money too. It’s a good thing that didn’t happen! He is just another Globalist Deep State Traitor.

  29. Honestly, I held both Trey Gowdy and Paul Ryan in high regard. I am disappointed in them both. They had me fooled. I thought they were Republicans who could be counted on to have our President’s back and help advance HIS agenda. After all, he did win and is POTUS. Sometimes ya just gotta have faith, and Americans have seen that they can have faith in Donald J Trump. He is fighting this messed up government machine like hell to fix it. He will and is making it better. FBI and DOJ were weaponized and there is not a single American that doesn’t recognize that. This is a witch hunt and we know it, DJT is playing the game to get it exposed and to restore our government to what our constitution requires it to be. HE IS RIGHT, what he does, WORKS. His policies and PERSONA are working in every arena and things are changing in the WORLD for the better. TOO many ways to mention. LOW information citizens haven’t a clue. People are starting to realize they have an obligation to get informed and hear the facts…like DJT tweets…that’s the news pure and simple. FAKE news is now a JOKE no one believes a word they report..they just make it up and call is un named sources…that is short for made up lies

  30. I thought Ryan was going to make a good Speaker of the House. How wrong could anyone be? Well his true colors just began to show. The problem still lies the majority of congress. they are people who swear to uphold our constitution and protect it from all enemies foreign and domestic and then take instructions from Soros and company. For at least the last one hundred years the American voter has been sleeping and voting for just what the candidates words are. No background checks. Well with the internet there can be little excuse today for that kind of voting. So let’s do our home work and do it well. America needs Americans. Thank you.

  31. The problem with Ryan is he is a republican. He is NOT a conservative. I voted for him and will NEVER again. May God give him all he deserves for not supporting God’s choice.

  32. THEY ARE ALL COMMING TO LIGHT FINALLY, NOT SURPRISED BY PAUL RYAN SADDENED BY TREY GOUDY. PAUL RYAN AND TREY GOUDY NEED TO LEAVE NOW
    AND THEY CAN TAKE THE OTHER TRAITORS WITH THEM, NOW THAT THEY ARE OUT AND WE KNOW, WHY STAY. WHO PAID THEM ALL OFF, WHO BUT SORROS
    VERY SAD. ALL THE DEMOCRATS WORK SO HARD TO BRING OUR GREAT COUNTRY DOWN, LET THEM ALL LEAVE THIS COUNTRY SO WE CAN MAKE IT GREAT AGAIN

  33. Paul Ryan is a FREAKING backstabbing BITCH. He should have been removed the day Trump took Office. No evidence the FBI spied on Trump? He’s a liar. The evidence is clear.

    • Steve is absolutely right, this is Paul Ryan, lying because he never liked Trump and never wanted him to win. He needs to retire, because when all is said and done, Ryan is probably right in the middle of all the corruption and knows he will be caught. Never trusted the man, he is a back stabbing fence sitter.

    • WHY CAN’T TRUMP fire Ryan? This is the dames gov. That hases every
      Been. Can’t fire anyone, but lady made a femoral McCain and he is the devil in disguise. He has hurt the American people because Trump told the truth about him and he couldn’t take it. It’s been all over fb. MEANY times. And no one has had the gut to charge him.
      U would think he would be praying to God instead of trying go out with TRASH on Trump

    • Your right 100%JORDAN would be 1000x better Ryan is a traitor trump is putting all the bums in spotlight it’s always been there house now it’s ours and they can’t stand it they have had a cushy job for years at our expense smile take pictures shake hands sit on there ass and lecture us good by to all of them

  34. I have not liked Ryan from the very beginning! He is a traitor! Always from the beginning. Probably another Soros clown. He should go! Far away! Now!

    • HE HATES PRESIDENT TRUMP BECAUSE HE AND ROMNEY LOST THEIR BID FOR THE PRESIDENCY…..HE HAS NEVER BEEN WITH OR FOR TRUMP…..HIS STANDING WITH THE A-HOLE ROMNEY IS PROOF OF THAT……THEY’RE BOTH VILE SNAKES IN THE GRASS…..
      I WOULDN’T TRUST RYAN AS FAR AS I COULD THROW AN ELEPHANT….

    • Judy, I totally agree!Ryan was always a POS. Gowdy pulled a Glenn Beck. Just another POS Swamp Creature just like Ryan. God i hate these worthless Lawyers a/k/a Liars!!

  35. RINO Ryan and his little jester like smirk can leave now as the RNC has no use for him. President Trump has a way of revealing people’s true colors. Personally I NEVER trusted Ryan. His gravy train is over. Do you hear CNN calling your name, Ryan?

    • It is my understanding that it only takes one Republican to formally petition that he step down from his leadership role. Where is there call for him to make his exit.

  36. I wonder why Ryan is retiring. He’s pretty young, compared to a lot of the Congressmen, he only 48 years old. He is making about a guarter million dollars a year, plus expenses. Where else could he find a job like that. Is he afraid he won’t be re-elected next time? Or has he been doing something he shouldn’t have and is afraid he will be caught if he stays on? odd.

    • because he knew he couldn’t win in November. Has nothing to do with his kids only knowing him as a weekend dad. He gets more time on vacation then most dads do. could his name come up as being one of the ones who used the secret payoff because of sexual harassment? he has something to hide and it will come out and he wants to be long gone when it does.

  37. Democrat, his wife runs the show. He took money from soros. That’s why he took the speaker job. To help take down Trump. Little coward.

  38. Trump need to fire that mother****** than send him to prison the rest of his life to live on scrapes. Also put him to work at hard labor he wouldn’t last long.

    • 😂😂😂He would never make it as President Trump would make mincemeat of Ryan as a Democrat runner for Pres!

    • Ryan is a rhino, he needs to go now. Used to think Gowdy was up and up, but he is one of the losers too. The gop are wimpy cry babies.

    • Greg: I believe Jim Jordan is the best choice for Speaker! He’s right up front and is a fighter. I’ve never been clear about Ryan – seemed like something didn’t fit. However, I always respected Trey Gowdy and was surprised about his comments, also! Say it isn’t so!

    • Paul Ryan is John McCain’s illegitimate son. Both spoilers and bad for the Party they betray daily for so many years. They may have been plants. Ha

    • Paul Ryan should also be tarred and feathered before being run out of town. He is a disgrace to the American way of life. I no longer have ANY respect for this deceitful sorry excuse for a human being. He is a RINO.

  39. Paul is not a true conservative. Another RINO pretending to be the champion of the GOP values. He’s fake. Glad that Trump exposed his true colors.

    Paul … goodbye!

  40. Never liked not trusted Ryan, he can’t retire fast enough especially after back stabbing President Trump. Ryan is a 2 faced four flushing phony!!!!

    • The DEEP State is made up of BOTH PARTIES professional PIMPS and HOOKERS and Clowns for SELF PRESERVATION and DO NOTHING for We The People…………time to get them ALL OUT!

  41. Speaker Paul Ryan just betrayed Donald Trump with this comment

    YOU KNOW !! TRUMPS ORIGINATION WOULD RUN A LOT SMOTHER IF THEY COULD PUSH THIS CRAPOLA OUT THE DOOR,AND REPLACE HIM WITH SOMEONE THE LOVES AMERICA .
