GOP Trumpers are starting to wake up and smell the coffee. Right now is time to jump off the sinking Trump ship before there’s no turning back, and weasel House Speaker Paul Ryan knows this better than anyone.
Throughout Trump’s presidency, Ryan has stuck up for Trump when it mattered, despite the leaked audio of him saying some not so nice things about the man in charge.
This time, Ryan isn’t going to battle for Trump in his war on the free press. AG Sessions just threatened journalists with subpoenas. He wants journalists to reveal ALL anonymous sources.
According to The Hill, Ryan stated:
“Leaks are concerning because leaks can often compromise national security, but that’s the problem of the leaker, not the journalist.”
Read AG Sessions’ statement below:
“We respect the important role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited. They cannot place lives at risk with impunity. We must balance their role with protecting our national security and the lives of those who serve in our intelligence community, the armed forces and all law abiding Americans.”
While it is nice to see Ryan break from Trump, this could just be one of those rare moments of GOP clarity. Don’t be surprised if Ryan is praising Trump tomorrow.
