Paul Ryan answered questions after his meeting with Donald Trump today about calls for a special prosecutor into Russian election interference — spurred on by the comments of one Republican lawmaker.
Ryan said he “can’t speak to” whether Jeff Sessions should recuse himself, and said the proper place for this investigation is the congressional intelligence committees.
“We know Russia meddled in the election. No one is disputing that. And this last government gave us that information in the first place. No one is alleging that some American was in on it beforehand.”
Yesterday Trump tweeted out that the “Russia talk is fake news”.
