Ryan Contradicts Trump: Robert Mueller Is Not 'A Biased Partisan'

During the weekly Republican House Leadership press conference, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said the House will "take action on key elements of the president's strategy to secure our borders, including the resources for a physical barrier".

A guest on Wisconsin radio's "The Jay Weber Show", Ryan was asked why Republicans aren't doing more to "protect their" President Donald Trump against Mueller's "witch hunt" investigation into possible collusion with Russian Federation.

In his remarks, Speaker Ryan said, "The last point I want to make is about security on our borders".

"Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican appointed by a Republican who served in a Republican administration and stayed on until his term ended", Ryan said.

"I don't think many people are saying Bob Mueller is a person who's a biased partisan". "I think the facts will vindicate themselves, and then let's just go do our jobs".

The governors are expected to have lunch with the President before returning to the country on Wednesday. The four governors are from the South-South, South-East, North-West and South-West respectively.

Ryan commented Monday during an interview on the "Jay Weber Show" on WISN-AM in Milwaukee. Trump's top aide Kellyanne Conway also attacked Mueller Sunday and described his legal team as "band of Democratic donors". Trump recently told the New York Times it would be a "violation" if Mueller looked at his personal finances as part of the probe.

Robert Mueller's investigation is looking into Trump finances and Russian Federation.

Trump's lawyers deny the reports that they are engaging in opposition research of Mueller and his team.

White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci suggested that Trump does not yet accept the conclusion of the intelligence community and questioned the media's pursuit of the story, saying it tarnished Trump's victory in November.

Asked about Trump's criticism of the special counsel, Collins responded: "I understand how hard and frustrating this investigation is for the president".
