On Monday afternoon, a statewide outlet called Nevada NewsMakers quietly published a story that reverberated throughout Washington, D.C.: rumors that Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) will resign soon, coming from none other than one of Ryan’s colleagues.

CNN also received statements from Amodei, and the office of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), effectively confirming their support for Ryan.
