Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was asked today, about the status of the Trump-Russian collusion investigation. Ryan immediately attacked Jeff Session’s DOJ for dragging their feet when asked to turn over documents related to the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation.
Paul told the press:
Frankly, the sooner the Department of Justice complies with all of our document requests, which are legitimate document requests, the better this is going to be for everybody. And had they complied with these document requests, earlier when we made them, we probably could’ve spared the country of all this drama.
Let me just say this one thing…In all of this, in any of this, there’s been no evidence that there’s any collusion between the Trump campaign and President Trump and Russia. Let’s just make that really clear. There’s no evidence of collusion. This is about Russia, and what they did, and making sure they don’t do it again, and about us, the Congress, the elected representative branch of governemnt, conducting very legitimate oversight over the appointed executive branch of govenrment, and we expect them to comply with all of our oversight requests…because that is how good government works. “
