Even Now, Paul Ryan Really Doesn't Want To Talk About Donald Trump

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan R-Janesville announced Wednesday that he will retire and not seek re-election in the fall. File

House Speaker Paul Ryan announced Wednesday that he will retire rather than seek another term in Congress, sending ripples through a Washington already on edge and spreading new uncertainty through a party bracing for a challenging election year.

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) said last week he would bring up the bill in the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he chairs.

"Paul Ryan was the franchise", Davis said. "I don't think he's gonna fire Mueller". "He told me personally that he'll do whatever it takes to help CLF protect the Republican majority".

"After more than a year of hiding from his constituents and a career of pushing for policies that hurt his community and the country, Speaker Ryan's decision to not seek re-election shows he's learning what PPAWI has known for years, attacks on access to health care are deeply unpopular and risky".

Ryan took over the Speakership in 2015 after John Boehner (R-Ohio) retired due to hostilities with the House Freedom Caucus, a conservative coalition that opposed significant portions of Boehner's agenda.

Explaining his decision to his Republican colleagues Wednesday morning at a meeting in the Capitol, a subdued Ryan said he wanted to spend more time with his children, who live in the same town where the speaker grew up. "I don't see a value in that".

I used to think that Ryan was smart, fearless and principled because he was willing to touch the "third rail" of American politics - entitlement reform. "I didn't want this job at first ..."

Ryan's seat is among nearly 100 more Republican-held districts that have gained new attention since Democrat Conor Lamb won a special House election in western Pennsylvania last month, in a district Trump won by nearly 20 points. "That is now done".

Whether this influenced WWE's decision to move Rusev from his one-on-one match with Taker to the 50-man Rumble is unknown. WWE confirmed to Newsweek that Rusev will take Jericho's spot in the 50-man Royal Rumble match.

Ryan said his decision to leave is based on his desire to be home with his teenage children before they leave the house and the fact that he has accomplished much of what he set out to do - not because of Trump or concerns about the 2018 election. And I've gotten much of what I came here to do done.

In Wisconsin, the most likely Republican candidate for Ryan's seat is state Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, multiple Republicans in the state said.

If Mueller delivers the goods (and maybe even if he doesn't), a Democrat-dominated House would likely begin impeachment proceedings on, oh say, January 21, 2019 - and it wouldn't take long to pass the articles of impeachment because in the House the minority can't block action.

"The kind of board that he would go after would probably pay between $250,000 and $300,000 a year and he could probably get three or four of them", said Fred Foulkes, a professor of at Boston University's Questrom School of Business. He insisted he will be "leaving this majority in good hands with what I believe is a very bright future". "Because of mandatory spending we call entitlements". "I really don't think a person's race for Congress is going to hinge on whether Paul Ryan's speaker or not", Ryan said.

Ryan did offer a warning that some conservatives have begun to embrace identity politics, once a province of the Left. In part, House leaders' talk of "binary choices"-"Either support the Republican plan as-is, or support Obamacare"-stemmed from their desire to pre-empt a rightward drift that might hinder the bill's chances in the Senate". McCarthy made a run at the speakership after then-Rep.

"We've all discussed this". If it truly is the end of a long public life and the beginning of an equally long private life, that's more than enough to have fulfilled his obligation to his Wisconsin constituents and the people of this country.

Jones described himself as a Holocaust denier and a former leader of the American Nazi Party. But the expectation of his impending departure has escaped the hushed confines of Ryan's inner circle and permeated the upper-most echelons of the GOP.

The speaker is by far the most prominent figure fleeing Congress in a long season of Republican retirements.
