[...] In laying out the main elements of the Republican replacement proposal, the 15-term congressman also noted that it will remove several key features of the ACA. ...

    President Donald Trump said he would not force a government shutdown over wall funding and border security before the midterm elections, suggesting that he made a deal with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Theyd rather not do it before, theyd rather do it right after the election, they dont want to do anything to upset the apple cart, Trump said in an interview with Fox and Friends host Pete Hegseth aired on Friday. Trump said that if it were up to him, he would force a shutdown over border security but that many great people...

    President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan have teamed up this summer to do something that hasnt happened in two decades write and pass department spending bills instead of lumping everything into a massive package. The House and Senate are moving at a brisk pace to pass the appropriations bills, with the Senate leading, approving nine of 12. Whats more, the Trump administration has pushed through key priorities on wall and Pentagon spending, as well as curbing wasteful programs, though still ending up with a more expensive budget than they wanted by over $50...

    And then there were the three who spoke on Friday. You had to control your gag reflex watching Vice President Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) extol McCains greatness as he was accorded the honor of lying in state. Consider Pence for a moment. He began with a ludicrous declaration that broke all records for disingenuousness: The president asked me to be here on behalf of a grateful nation, to pay a debt of honor and respect to a man who served our country throughout his life, in uniform and in public...

    American political leaders of both parties are paying tribute and offering prayers for ailing Arizona Sen. John McCain, but President Donald Trump has so far been silent. Neither the White House nor the president has yet spoken out after McCain's family announced Friday that the former prisoner of war and longtime public servant would no longer seek medical treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are praising McCain and offering prayers for his family, as is Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee....

    Mitt Romney (R) said the "last 24 hours" have confirmed his "faith" in the U.S. justice system after President Trump's former campaign chairman was convicted on eight felony counts while his former personal lawyer pleaded guilty to various counts including campaign finance law violations. "The events of the last 24 hours confirm that conduct by highly-placed individuals was both dishonorable and illegal," Romney, who is running for the Senate in Utah, wrote in a tweet on Wednesday. "Also confirmed is my faith in our justice system and my conviction that we are a nation committed to the rule of law."...

    I met with Paul Ryan, she says. Ive met with just about everybody. Publicly, they arent supportive of transgender rights. What do they say to her? Ive never had anybody not be nice to my face, says Jenner, who did not want to elaborate on conversations that were confidential. [cut] Jenner says Trump never reached out. (A source with knowledge of her thinking says Jenner would like to meet with the president after the midterm elections, but not in front of the press.)

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday celebrated his recent discovery that he has Jewish ancestry. Guess I need to start saying LChaim now, too! Ryan tweeted, along with a gif of him toasting with a glass of Guinness. The clip was from a toast Ryan gave during an annual Friends of Ireland luncheon, using the Irish toast slinte. Ryan discovered his Jewish heritage during an upcoming episode of the PBS show Finding Your Roots. Host Henry Louis Gates Jr. told Ryan during the show that about 3 percent of his DNA is Ashkenazi Jewish, and that he traced the ancestry...

    Never-Trump Republican leaders Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters this week they will not fund the Trump Border Wall in the upcoming spending bill. Ryan and McConnell passed a record $1.3 trillion spending bill in March. The spending bill funded Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities but NOT the Trump border wall. And now the Republican Party leaders are going to stick it to President Trump and his voters once again. Theyre not going to fund the border wall in September. The Daily Caller reported: During a radio interview with WHAS on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch...

    Congressional officials say Rosenstein's DOJ withheld and concealed documents and information Lawmakers went ahead with Rosenstein's articles of impeachment despite Speaker Ryan's disapproval Congressmen say they have been "stonewalled" repeatedly by DOJ For more than nine months, House Republicans have been battling the Department of Justice and FBI for a cache of documents they say are necessary to conduct oversight investigations into the FBIs handling of alleged collusion between Donald Trumps presidential campaign and Russia. The backroom battles between lawmakers and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein culminated in impeachment articles filed Wednesday against the deputy attorney general. The lawmakers did...

    As the editors of The Weekly Standard suggested last week, Congress could pass a resolution of censure for the presidents conduct and his subsequent comments. Congress can also take steps with concrete consequences: Pass legislation imposing new sanctions on Russia in the event of any future attacks on our democratic process. Dare President Trump to veto it. Override him if he does. Hold hearings that would include in-depth testimony from the national security team on the Russian attacks, putting the case on the record (again), while putting pressure on members of the administration to correct the presidents comments....

    Conservatives should "fight back" against the alt-right and white nationalists, and do a better job reclaiming classic terms to stamp out identity politics, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on Thursday. We have to go back and fight for our ground and re-win these ideas and marginalize these guys the best we can to the corners, Ryan said. Do everything you can to defeat it.

    Republican lawmakers were left shaking their heads after President Trumps Mondays press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin, in which Trump declined to endorse the American intelligence communitys assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.) called it one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory and a tragic mistake in a statement. No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant, McCain said. The damage inflicted by President Trumps naivet, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. House speaker Paul Ryan also...

"These are serious allegations and issues," Ryan's spokesman Doug Andres told USA Today in an email. "The university has rightfully initiated a full investigation into the matter. The speaker will await the findings of that inquiry." Ryan's office had released the statement earlier this week amid the July 4 recess, but reiterated his position after more former wrestlers at Ohio...
