House Speaker Paul Ryan inadvertently gave voters a good reason to support Democrats in November for the midterm elections. Ryan sounded like he was confessing to something, and that’s not surprising since Republicans are complicit in covering up crimes for the current administration.
While speaking at a financial conference, Ryan warned that if Democrats win control of either the House or the Senate in the November elections, “you’ll have gridlock, you’ll have subpoenas” with the whole legislative system “shutting down,” according to Bloomberg.
New York Magazine reports:
What really would change with Democratic control of a chamber is the subpoena part. But it’s worth spelling out just what it is Ryan is warning will happen — and what, by implication, he is confessing.”
Ryan spoke favorably of Trump at the conference and credited him with shaking up the political status quo.
Republicans have refused to sufficiently investigate Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. Ryan celebrated the GOP tax scam being passed which he touted, and his work is done, after damaging the middle class. Ryan is not going to run for reelection in Wisconsin. Ryan and his Republican colleagues have failed to hold a foreign hostile power responsible for interfering in our election. And when he speaks of ‘gridlock,’ he seems to have forgotten about the Republican obstruction during the Obama years.
Team Trump has blatantly and gleefully corrupted the system. The ‘drain the swamp’ rhetoric he still uses at his ego-rallies is ‘fake news.’ Instead, Trump filled the swamp up with horrifying creatures, and Ryan and his colleagues didn’t even furrow their brows.
Trump tells his supporters that it’s Hillary Clinton and the Democrats who colluded with Russia. He’s lashed out at the Department of Justice, the FBI, all intelligence agencies, and his own Attorney General. Somehow, Trump supporters think the former reality show star is innocent, and everyone else is lying. When the fever breaks, they’re going to have a rude awakening.
