Paul Ryan was caught red handed late last week for being involved in the secret negotiations between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch. An obscure state law required that Ryan, otherwise an anonymous passenger who didn’t exist, be listed on the plane’s manifest when it landed in Baltimore.
Now Ryan, who has come under pressure from the party and the president, has no choice but to explain himself. Moments ago (as of the writing of this), Paul Ryan announced that he was there and gave his reasons to Steve Doocey at Fox News:
” I was bamboozled onto that plane under false pretenses. AG Lunch told me we were going to meet a possible leak in the DNC, not that we were going to negotiate with Bill Clinton.
I had nothing to do with any of it. I was an unwilling participant who made no suggestions and made no commitments.”
So basically, he broke his silence to deny it. He was just there. he didn’t participate. He sat watching Spongebob and whenever anyone looked at him he put his fingers in his ears and shouted “La la la la la la la” over and over until they went away.
Yeah…sure he did.
