“No One Is Above The Law.” — Speaker Paul Ryan

June 6, 2018

House Speaker Paul Ryan said that he’s seen no evidence to contradict Congressman Trey Gowdy’s recent assessment that the FBI acted responsibly when it deployed an informant to make contact with associates of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“I think Chairman Gowdy’s initial assessment is accurate,” said Ryan, who was one of a handful of lawmakers, including Gowdy, briefed by the Justice Department on the FBI’s use of an informant. “I have seen no evidence to the contrary of the initial assessment Chairman Gowdy has made.”

Trump has claimed repeatedly, without evidence, that the FBI placed a spy in his campaign for political purposes, dubbing it  stupidly as “Spygate.”

Meanwhile, Republican Congressman Tom Roone, a top lawmaker on the House Intelligence Committee, is ripping Trump’s unsupported claim that the FBI inserted a spy inside his campaign, Politico reports.

Said Rooney: “What is the point of saying that there was a spy in the campaign when there was none? You know what I’m saying? It’s like, ‘Lets create this thing to tweet about knowing that it’s not true.’ … Maybe it’s just to create more chaos but it doesn’t really help the case.”
