Paul Ryan: FBI Did Nothing Wrong Spying on Trump (VIDEO)
Speaker Paul Ryan, who is set to retire in 2019, told reporters today he saw nothing wrong with the FBI spying on Donald Trump’s campaign in the 2016 election.
Paul Ryan: Chairman Gowdy’s initial assesment is accurate. But we have some more investigation to do… I have seen no evidence to the contrary of the initial assessment that Chairman Gowdy has made.
Ryan apparently agrees with Trey Gowdy with his remarks.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan told reporters Wednesday he believes the FBI acted appropriately in using an informant to contact Trump campaign members during the 2016 presidential election.
“I think Chairman Gowdy’s initial assessment is accurate,” Ryan said in support of his colleague Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who recently told Fox News that he sees no wrongdoing in the FBI’s use of an informant.
“I have seen no evidence to the contrary of the initial assessment Chairman Gowdy has made,” he said, adding that investigators still “have some more digging to do.”
Last week, Rep. Gowdy told Fox News host Martha MacCallum, “I am even more convinced that the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got and that it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.”
