The House speaker said that there are people who want “to harm the president.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan said at a press conference on Wednesday that there is “a lot of politics being played” with investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Ryan called for his colleagues to remain “responsible, sober, and focused only on gathering the facts.”
“It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president,” he said, but also emphasized the importance of Congress’ oversight of the executive branch.
The House speaker also questioned the circumstance surrounding former FBI Director James Comey’s memo.
“If this happens as [Comey] allegedly describes, why didn’t he take action at the time?” he asked.
Ryan backed efforts to obtain the memos and insisted that Comey come before Congress to answer questions.
