Did Paul Ryan Know about Hillary’s Trump Hit Piece Video Before It Was Released?

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Yesterday the Clinton Family Crime machine and their myriad of cronies in the press starting with the Washington Post released a video tape of Donald Trump making sexual comments about a woman 11 years ago in an effort to damage the Trump campaign. 

“The video captures Trump talking with Billy Bush, then of “Access Hollywood,” on a bus with the show’s name written across the side. They were arriving on the set of “Days of Our Lives” to tape a segment about Trump’s cameo on the soap opera.”

The Los Angeles Times reported that hours after audio was released of Donald Trump making sexually suggestive comments about a woman, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan castigated Trump and said he would no longer attend their scheduled event on Saturday.

“I am sickened by what I heard today,” Ryan said in a statement. “Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests.”

Ryan was scheduled to campaign with Trump for the first time.  Ryan has denounced Trump on several occasions in the past. But, he said in the statement, “he is no longer attending tomorrow’s event in Wisconsin.”

For most of this campaign it’s been clear that Ryan supports Democrat Hillary Clinton over Trump.  The coincidence of the timing of this video release is peculiar and leads one to ask if Ryan was aware of the video before it was released?

Mike Cernovich tweeted that his sources tell him that Ryan and RNC Chair Priebus were in on the video release:

Trump has overcome more obstacles than any candidate in history.  This includes the BS from his own party.  In spite of all this Trump set a record for most votes by a Republican in the primaries ever and Trump is crushing Clinton in campaign rally participation and on social media.
