Paul Ryan: 'Lot of politics being played' over Trump accusations
Comey had been heading the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into the connections between Russian officials and Trump's presidential campaign. "That is what Congress does in oversight of the executive", the Wisconsin Republican said, responding to the news that the FBI director had documented a request from the president that he drop the investigation into former aide Michael Flynn. "I hope you can let this go", referring to the Flynn investigation.
"I believe that the professionals at the Justice Department need to do their jobs independently, objectively and throughly, and I believe that the special counsel, which is Robert Mueller now, helps them do that", Ryan said at his weekly press conference. "He is a good guy".
Dismissing some of the reports as "innuendo", Ryan brushed aside calls for a special investigation or prosecutor. "Our job is to get the facts and be sober about doing that". Congress members warned the surprising dismissal had marred the independence of the FBI investigation.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has lashed out at USA politicians whipping up what he described as "anti-Russian sentiment" for being either "stupid" or "dangerous". "While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn", a White House statement said. Republicans, on the whole, reserved judgment until they learned more or heard from Comey himself.
