Republican House Speaker says Trump shouldn't pardon himself

Ryan 'Obviously' Trump shouldn't pardon himself

"I think Chairman Gowdy's initial assessment is accurate, but we have more digging to do", Ryan said. "As long as we have a special counsel who will not even confess as to his limits, then this is going to continue to be a problem".

The Senate Intelligence Committee agreed to provide records in response to a request from the Justice Department, and the Senate on Wednesday passed a resolution allowing it to do so.

On the pardon issue, Ryan joined Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in sending a subtle message to Trump.

The comments come after Trump insisted in a series of angry tweets last month that the agency planted a spy "to help Crooked Hillary win", referring to his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. The official declined to be named because the briefings are classified. Ryan made the comments a day after contradicting Trump over whether there was an Federal Bureau of Investigation spy in his presidential campaign.

Zeldin, who is in his second term, noted that Speaker Ryan said that Congress needed to see all the documents on the Russian Federation inquiry to get a complete idea of what occurred within the Trump campaign.

Company's EPS for the prior five-years is valued at -13.2%, leading it to an EPS value of 16% for the next five years. The business had revenue of $3.42 billion during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $3.56 billion.

Speaking on Carlson's primetime show Wednesday night, Swalwell denied that the FBI's alleged informant - veteran spy and academic Stefan Halper - actually spied on the Trump campaign, arguing that "spying is what you do against an enemy".

Ryan, Gowdy and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes attended a classified briefing with officials from the FBI and Justice Department last month to review material related to the investigation. Instead, some are carrying water for a Justice Department that has already resisted congressional oversight, misrepresented material facts to a FISA court, improperly redacted documents and failed to disclose spying on a presidential campaign.

"It would have been helpful if we'd gotten this information earlier", Ryan added.

"I have no disagreement with the description Trey Gowdy gave", Burr said.

"But the obvious answer is he shouldn't [pardon himself] and no one is above the law. If I am watching you without your knowledge, gathering information without your knowledge, don't tell you about it, I'm spying on you", Carlson said. "Today for the first time I was hearing colleagues say if Speaker Ryan won't stand with us in this fight over the essentials of our democracy, not weaponizing [the] intelligence community against the presidential campaign, do we need to look at other choices?"
