House Speaker Paul Ryan sides with Rep. Trey Gowdy on “Spygate”

12:20 PM ET Wed, 6 June 2018

Rep. Trey Gowdy was "accurate" when he argued the FBI has acted appropriately in its ongoing probe of potential Russian links to the Trump campaign, House Speaker Paul Ryan says. Ryan's statement puts him at odds with Trump, who has claimed a "spy" was embedded in his campaign for "political purposes." Gowdy said he believed "the FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do" after a briefing with intelligence officials.
