US House speaker confident tax reform can be done in 2017

US House speaker confident tax reform can be done in 2017

Both lawmakers applauded the choice of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a new special counsel to lead the Justice Department's investigation into allegations of collusion between Trump associates and Russia's efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.

In a news conference, Ryan and GOP leaders deflected attention from reports that former FBI Director James Comey says President Donald Trump asked him to back off the investigation into ex-national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Asked by a reporter when he anticipated turning on Trump, Ryan dismissed that as a hypothetical question, adding, "There is no timetable for my inevitable betrayal of him". "I think that deserves close examination".

In a scheduled press conference on Wednesday, the speaker of the House of Representatives said it was important to focus on facts.

"It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president", Speaker Ryan also told reporters Wednesday, as ThinkProgress reported.

When asked if the flood of daily "dramas" coming from the White House could be lessened, Ryan replied, "Well it's always nice to have less drama, but the point I'm trying to make is people in the country really know is that we are busy at work trying to solve their problems".

Ryan said that the Oversight Committee "appropriately requested" the memo.

Asked if Mr Comey should testify at two congressional inquiries into Russian Federation, he said it was up to the committees to decide.

Speaker Ryan might want to remember that a new NBC News/WSJ poll finds 78 percent of Americans support an independent commission or special prosecutor to conduct the Russian Federation investigation rather than Congress.

Although it's hard to imagine it would take much time for Congress to subpoena the supposed Comey memo ― or much time to review it ― Ryan has given Trump extraordinary latitude and has found all sorts of creative ways to stand up for the president.

His letter announcing his resignation did not mention the investigation, focusing exclusively about his decision about wanting to spend more time with family.

Some Republican lawmakers are already suggesting that this could be grounds for impeachment. Chaffetz had Comey in front of the oversight committee within 48 hours of his announcement that Clinton wouldn't face criminal charges, Cummings said. But if even one or two Republicans start signing on to Democratic petitions to impeach the president, it could make life more hard for Republicans as a whole.
