Any what role did losing the House play in this?
There was a Q post a while back saying there were GrandJuries sitting in several states, re the last election, and added that they cant do anything about it.
I like the thought :)
Thanks for reminding of the other reason the house was useless
President Donald Trump is not happy that former House Speaker Paul Ryan blocked subpoenas of people and entities Trump thinks the House GOP should have been investigating during the first two years of his administration.
Trump told Breitbart News in an exclusive lengthy Oval Office interview that Ryan blocked issuance of subpoenas to people he thinks should have been investigated on the political left, and now that the Republicans no longer have the majority in the House, people Trump says Ryan protected may have gotten away with whatever they did that warranted investigation.
Trump said that House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and his predecessor and fellow conservative Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) wanted to be tougher with the left, but that Ryan would not let them.
Paul Ryan wouldnt give the right to have any subpoenas, Trump told Breitbart News. Okay? Now in all fairness, Meadows and Jordan and all these guys, they wanted to go tougher, but they werent allowed to by leadership.
Trumps relationship with Ryan during Ryans tenure was fraught with peril from the get-go. Ryan only hesitantly backed Trumps 2016 campaign in 2016 once Trump won the GOP nomination, but then backed off from supporting Trump after the release of the infamous Access Hollywood tape. Ryan ditched on a campaign event he had scheduled with Trump that weekend, and the following week held a conference call with House GOP members in early October 2016 in which he told members it would be acceptable to him if they abandoned the GOP nominee for president just weeks before the 2016 election.
I am not going to defend Donald Trumpnot now, not in the future, Ryan said on the private call, audio of which was obtained by Breitbart News and published in early 2017.
Ryan followed through on that and never campaigned with Trump. When Breitbart News published this audio in the spring of 2017, his then-spokesman Brendan Buck claimed that a lot has happened since then and argued that Ryan was working with Trump on the presidents agenda in the first couple years of his administration.
