Paul Ryan Dodges Questions About Trump Jr Scandal; Ran Out Of Lies To Tell

In the midst of Donald Trump’s Russia debacle, House Speaker Paul Ryan was asked a series of questions that he repeatedly dodged because he simply can-not keep up with all the Trump administration’s constant lies.

Ryan told reporters at a Capital Hill news conference that Russian meddling was certainly not present in the U.S. election.

He states:

“It is absolutely unacceptable that Russia — or any other country to meddle in our elections. Period.”

“We have a special counsel that is doing investigation over at the Justice Department, we have an investigation here in the House, we have an investigation in the Senate.”
“I think it is very important that these professionals and these committees do their job so we can get to the bottom of all of this.”
In addition, Paul Ryan went on to support the appointment of Mueller to serve as the special counsel and said it’s important that Muller and the congressional probes “do their jobs and follow these leads wherever they may lay, wherever they may go, and follow the facts.”
 Of course, this is a common tactic Republicans use when they know they are caught red-handed; the old run and lie technique has always given them a scapegoat–but Americans have caught on to their mind-games.
