Paul Ryan Sabotaged Nunes’ Deep State Investigation

Swamp Rat Number One

Long-time readers will be aware that I’ve never thought much of former Speaker Paul Ryan(R-WI,) and that I’ve long thought he was just a Washington DC insider getting wealthy on his connections and position.  Now comes news that confirms what I thought all along: Paul Ryan actually punished Devin Nunes(R-CA) for tipping-off President Trump about the deep-state spying on the Trump campaign that occurred in the last year of the Obama administration.  No wonder then that Paul Ryan retired as Speaker of the House.  If the abuses of the FISC and the FISA process is ever fully disclosed, people like Ryan are going to be caught up in it all.  Ryan and his ilk are the swamp.  It’s no secret that Ryan didn’t want Trump elected, and did everything he could do undermine him.  Sure, he made some campaign appearances apparently on Trump’s behalf, but let’s be blunt: It was all about keeping up appearances.  The real truth came out when it was disclosed by Cleta Mitchell on Lou Dobbs’ show that Ryan punished(!) Nunes by putting him before the ethics committee, and that action stalled Nunes’ investigation for a year:

Do you understand what this really was? Paul Ryan, using his power as Speaker of the House, tied up Devin Nunes in a phony ethics committee investigation because he went to the President to warn him about the plot against him.  While Nunes was out of the picture, the investigation was being stalled and obfuscated.  Only once the ethics committee dispensed with the nonsensical ethics review was Nunes restored as chairman, and by then, he was going to be in a race to get things revealed to the public before the midterms of 2018.

This is sick.  Paul Ryan helped the DC Uni-Party get away with their crimes, if ultimately, they manage to do so.  I like Dan Bongino’s term for insider, DC Republicans: “Swamp Rats.”  Paul Ryan is all of that and more.  I wonder how many other swamp rats are among the Republicans who “retired” in 2018. They’ve been helping Obama’s people avoid justice because they’re owed justice too.  President Trump had better focus some of his energies on cleaning up the DC swamp before it swallows him whole.
