Robert Mueller Isn’t Just Going After Trump, He’s Coming For The Entire GOP



A progressive strategist is tweeting out his belief that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) should be investigated for possibly interfering with the Russia investigation.

Scott Dworkin, who works with and co-founded the Democratic Coalition, said that Ryan is working with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, to interfere with and make undue critiques of the FBI’s investigation.

Nunes has for some time now made several attempts to force the FBI and the Justice Department to let him and his committee members in on details involving the Steele Dossier. The document has suggested that President Donald Trump’s business ties to Russia and individuals close to the Kremlin could compromise his position as chief executive, and also included salacious details involving him hiring prostitutes in Russia during his visit in 2013.

Nunes had recused himself from the Russia probe back in April, due to meeting he had with Trump in which he divulged details of incidental monitoring that included members of Trump’s presidential transition team.

But that recusal seemed to be just lip service, and now Nunes is demanding information from the DOJ. It seems that Paul Ryan is helping him to procure it.

Just days after the Speaker met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, a meeting that is known to have discussed Nunes and aspects of the Russia investigation, Nunes suddenly got his request fulfilled: the FBI agreed to allow the committee “access to all the documents and witnesses we have requested.”

Dworkin, however, has his doubts. It’s his belief that Ryan helped secure those documents by putting pressure on the DOJ somehow, and that his actions warrant investigation.

In ordinary circumstances, two investigations sharing information because they’re researching the same thing wouldn’t be too out-of-the-ordinary. But these are extraordinary times, and the fact that Nunes has shared information with the president before (which he wasn’t supposed to be privy to) makes the deal seem highly suspicious.

Is Ryan hiding something? Is he attempting to get information passed onto the president, knowing that’s Nunes’s modus operandi? It’s unclear at this point. But Dworkin is probably right: Ryan’s actions deserve to be scrutinized as well.
