Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) insisted on Thursday that Republicans wouldn’t be calling for the impeachment of a Democratic president accused of the same actions as President Trump, who allegedly tried to put pressure on former FBI Director James Comey.
“No. I don’t think we would, actually. I don’t think that’s at all the case,” Ryan said.
Ryan expressed sympathy for Trump.
“What I got out of that testimony is, we now know why he was so frustrated when the FBI director told him three times there’s no investigation of him, yet that speculation was allowed to continue,” Ryan said.
