Speaker Ryan Rejects Trump's Twitter Attack on Justice Dept

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., is rejecting President Donald Trump’s suggestion the Justice Department should not prosecute two GOP congressmen because it will hurt the party’s election prospects in November.

Ryan tells reporters Wednesday, “Justice is blind. Justice should be blind.” The Wisconsin Republican says political party should have no impact on how the department works.

Ryan became the latest Republicans to criticize Trump since the president tweeted Monday the Justice Department should take his political views into account when pursuing investigations. Trump criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions for prosecuting the two GOP lawmakers just before midterm elections, saying, “Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff.”

Ryan adds “the process is working its way as it should.”
