Speaker Paul Ryan addressed the media regarding Mike Flynn resigning from his position as National Security Advisor. Ryan defended President Trump saying that he “made the right decision,” and that it was “the right thing to do.” During Trump’s presidential transition, Flynn had conversations with the Russian ambassador discussing sanctions that he neglected to disclose.
Washington Examiner quotes, “National security is perhaps the most important function or responsibility the president has, and I think the president made the right decision to ask for his resignation,” Ryan said. “You cannot have a national security advisor mislead the vice president and others, so I think the president was right to ask for his resignation, and I believe it was the right thing to do.”
Ryan: “As soon as this person lost the president’s trust, the president asked for his resignation and that was the right thing to do.” pic.twitter.com/qjC4oWP73p
