Paul Ryan Gets Cornered By Reporter Over Nunes Memo: Was Trump ‘Vindicated In Any Way?’

During a press conference on Tuesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) found himself trapped into a corner after a reporter asked him if President Donald Trump was “vindicated” by a controversial Republican memo alleging surveillance abuse at the Justice Department.

The reporter noted that Ryan had said last week that the memo would not impact Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. After the memo was released, however, Trump suggested the document was proof the investigation was unfairly biased against him.

Ryan, however, would not say whether he agreed that the memo was vindication for the president — and dodged the question entirely.

“Let me go back to what I said,” he said. “This is about FISA abuse and this is about holding our government accountable and this is about Congress doing its job over the executive branch,” he added before bolting away from the roo.
