Paul Ryan's Hypocrisy

By Jeff Simpson

What happens when The Donald shares classified information with the Russians?

But wait there is more!

It turns out during the election,  The House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and The Speaker Paul Ryan had this conversation.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that McCarthy made the stunning remarks in a private conversation on Capitol Hill.
“There’s two people I think Putin pays: [California Republican Dana] Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy said, according to the report.
While our very own Paul Ryan might not understand economics very well, he does understand politics and moved immediately to shut down the conversation:

The Post reports that Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) stopped the conversation immediately and made the members present swear to secrecy. 
“No leaks,” Ryan said. “This is how we know we’re a real family here.”
Know we are family?   I thought he was a duly elected public official, who values transparency and openness for his constituents.   I cant find "swearing to secrecy" anywhere in the Constitution.

Leak National security secrets and Meh!   Leak something that would make the GOP look bad, that must be stopped and stopped immediately!

But wait there is even more!!!

Spending enough time with The Donald has shown Paul Ryan how to throw his staff under the bus.  Ryan managed to turn his "counselor" into Baghdad Bob:  

Sorry Brendan if you believe that I have an auto plant in Janesville to sell you!

  1. No no no, Paul Ryan was just kidding, and no one took it seriously, when he said: “Individuals who are ‘extremely careless’ with classified information should be denied further access to such info.”

    (What he actually seriously meant was: “Individuals who are Democrats should be denied further access to such info.” Everyone understood this.)

    Thus Ryan's complete uninterest in Trump's carelessless with classified information (e.g. to the Russians) is utterly consistent. See?
