    James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence for former President Obama, claims in his new book Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to sign a statement condemning foreign interference in elections. In his book, “Facts and Fears, Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence,” Clapper claims the two Republican leaders did not want to sign anything that would hurt their party’s nominee. Clapper was “disappointed, but not surprised,” he also wrote. Ryan and McConell have not responded to the claims. During his appearance on “The View,” Clapper insisted the FBI was not spying on President Donald...

    A Super PAC funded by retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan is spending more than $10 million to help the GOP representatives who are trying to pass a cheap-labor amnesty via the discharge-petition process. The amnesty-boosting funds are being collected and shared via the Congressional Leadership Fund, which was described in a May 17 Politico article: TUSTIN, Calif. — Republicans have amassed a sprawling shadow field organization to defend the House this fall, spending tens of millions of dollars in an unprecedented effort to protect dozens of battleground districts that will determine control of the chamber.

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) swore Father Patrick Conroy back in as chaplain Tuesday afternoon after he resigned last week at Ryan's request, then rescinded the resignation amid controversy. Conroy was expected to step down from his post on April 24 at the request of Ryan. The Wisconsin Republican's decision to oust the priest sparked a wave of bipartisan backlash, with Democrats pushing for the establishment of a select committee to investigate his motives for the move. Conroy ultimately announced he planned to fight to stay in the role, but Ryan accepted his decision. "Pursuant to the provisions of section 208-a...

    A Republican representative on Wednesday filed a petition to force a House vote on immigration, going around leadership and the committee process. GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo (Fla.) filed the motion, known as a discharge petition. He was joined by Republican Reps. Jeff Denham (Calif.), Will Hurd (Texas), Mario Díaz Balart (Fla.) and David Valadao (Calif.) as initial sponsors. If a majority of the House votes for the discharge petition, the chamber will then vote on an immigration proposal by Denham. Republicans who support immigration reform have grown increasingly frustrated at leadership over inaction on the issue. Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.)...

    The Rev. Patrick Conroy, chaplain of the House of Representatives, said in a letter on Thursday that he was rescinding his resignation amid his high-profile ousting by House Speaker Paul Ryan. The Associated Press reported that Conroy wrote in a two-page letter to Ryan, the retiring Wisconsin Republican, that he has never "heard a complaint about my ministry" as House chaplain. Democrats have expressed outrage over Ryan’s decision to push Conroy out of the job. Ryan has told fellow Republicans that he fired the House chaplain, a Roman Catholic priest from the Jesuit order, after complaints from members that he...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan has forced out the House chaplain, Reverend Patrick Conroy. Conroy had served as the chamber’s chaplain since 2011 but offered his resignation last week at Ryan’s urging. Conroy’s resignation letter said he was offering to step down at Ryan’s request, calling his seven years of House service “one of the great privileges of my life.” Ryan spokeswoman Ashlee Strong would not reveal the speaker’s reasons for forcing Conroy out. A top Democrat, Rep. Joe Crowley of New York, said he believes it was because of a prayer Conroy gave during last fall’s tax debate urging that...

    Bryan Steil, a former aide to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), on Sunday announced his bid for Ryan’s congressional seat, The Associated Press reported. “I want to take my problem-solving skills to Congress.

The primary is scheduled for Aug. 14. Steil, who is from Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, sits on the Board of Regents for the University of Wisconsin, the AP reported. He served as an economic adviser and legislative aide to...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan will push his open borders agenda during his last months in Congress, telling the media that he is interested in passing an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    Paul Ryan had all-star talent as a legislator and fundraiser, and the realization of his career-long goal of tax reform is a monumental legacy. He has been an adept policy wonk, and his work as the pre-eminent Obamacare critic on Capitol Hill was nothing short of inspirational, most notably in 2010 as the ranking member of the House Budget Committee. That year at the bipartisan White House Summit on Health Care, Ryan put on a savant-level clinic on sound economic policy and on the harmful ramifications the Democratic health care bill would have. He spoke with analytical flourish but kept...

After the studio audience loudly cheered the news, McCain said, “Cheering kind of surprises me a little bit because Paul Ryan is a politician of an era gone by. He was one of the most powerful congressmen between 2009 and 2016, before Trumpism sort of completely took over. He is a really classic conservative, and this party is the party of Trump now. People like me who are old-school conservatives, we’re really on our...
