Paul Ryan: James Comey Is Not a Nut Job

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday publicly disagreed with President Trump’s reported assertion that ex-FBI Director James Comey is a “nut job.” During an Axios event in Washington, D.C., the top House Republican said, “Yeah, I don't agree with that. And he’s not [a nut job].” Ryan later added: “I like Jim Comey.” According to The New York Times, during his Oval Office meeting with Russian diplomats, Trump bragged that firing “nut job” Comey had eased the “great pressure” on him from the ongoing FBI probe into Russian ties to the Trump campaign.
