Ryan Praises Trump for Making Right Decision on Flynn

House Speaker Paul Ryan, commenting on Michael Flynn's resignation as national security adviser, went out of his way to praise the White House for something it never acknowledged doing, Mediaite reports.

"I think the president made the right decision to ask for his resignation," Ryan said. "You cannot have a national security adviser misleading the vice president and others."

To emphasize his point, Ryan said again: "I think the president was right to ask for his resignation. And I believe it was the right thing to do."

But reporters later noted the White House has never confirmed President Donald Trump actually asked for Flynn to resign.

Jordan Fabian of The Hill went on Twitter to point that out.

Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reports that Ryan did not endorse a separate probe into Flynn's phone conversations with the Russian ambassador. The House and Senate intelligence panels are already investigating Russia's hacking of Democratic emails during the campaign, the website noted.
