Exposed=> Paul Ryan Told GOP To ‘Keep President Hillary Clinton Accountable’ Because ‘Trump Can’t Win’
It’s well documented that Speaker Paul Ryan was not and is still not a supporter of President Trump. Texas GOP Congressman Louie Gohmert reveals Ryan told fellow Congressmen that they should be focused on keeping “President Hillary Clinton” accountable because Donald Trump won’t win the White House.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has revealed that during the 2016 presidential campaign, House Speaker Paul Ryan told him and his fellow Republicans to give up on Donald Trump’s campaign and just focus their energy on keeping “President Hillary Clinton accountable.” According to Ryan, the Republicans had no chance at the White House, so at the very least they should try to retain their House majority.
The directive came during a conference call, Gohmert told The Daily Caller in a video interview and then confirmed again during his appearance on “Fox & Friends” Sunday.
The Texas Republican, as you can imagine, was not thrilled with Ryan’s suggestion.
“Are you crazy? We haven’t held anyone accountable. You haven’t even let us hold the IRS commissioner accountable [for using government power to harm President Obama’s political adversaries],” an astonished Gohmert said to the speaker on a call.
Let us never forget the audio of Speaker Paul Ryan on a conference call with House Republicans, where he told them to ditch defending Trump. The Republican leader told members of the U.S. House of Representatives that he was abandoning then GOP presidential nominee, Donald Trump forever.
Breitbart with the exclusive report:
In the Oct. 10, 2016 call, from right after the Access Hollywood tape of Trump was leaked in the weeks leading up to the election, Ryan does not specify that he will never defend Trump on just the Access Hollywood tape—he says clearly he is done with Trump altogether.
“I am not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future,” Ryan says in the audio, obtained by Breitbart News and published here for the first time ever.
The October conference call apparently was intended only for House Republican members. It’s unclear which or how many House Republicans took part in the call, whether the participants knew it was being recorded, who made the recording, or whether a recording exists of the entire call. The remarks on the portion provided to Breitbart News certainly sound like they were coming from Speaker Ryan, who seemed to be abandoning his party’s presidential nominee altogether just weeks before the election. He says not only will he not defend the Access Hollywood comments, but he will not campaign with Trump at all between this call on Oct. 10, 2016, and the general election for the presidency on Nov. 8—and that Ryan would not defend Trump on anything generally.
Paul Ryan is doing everything he can to undermine President Trump. This is all making sense. He never intended to defend Donald Trump and this audio is more proof of that.
