We Do Need Answers on the Russia Issue

Speaker Paul Ryan is right that we need answers on the Russia issue. It continues to provide Democrats an excuse to discredit President Trump and claim the election was stolen. It weighs on his legitimacy.

At the same time, if the Russians did work with individuals in the Trump campaign, the President should want to know who collaborated with foreign agents to jeopardize his Presidency and cast his legacy into dubious light.

But above all else, the American people deserve answers on whether the intelligence community seeks to undermine the President or if the President’s own campaign staff did something they should not have done. I am aware of no credible allegation that the President himself was involved in anything. But around several former campaign workers there is a lot of smoke.

Speaker Ryan is right on this.
