House Speaker Paul Ryan released a statement Thursday supporting sanctions against Russia in retaliation for reports of Russian hackers intervening in the U.S election.
Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan voiced his support for President Obama’s sanctions against Russia, reports Yahoo.
President Obama enacted the sanctions on Thursday based on a “secret assessment” performed by the CIA, according to Breitbart News.
Sanctions are often considered to be acts of war in the international community.
The CIA claimed Russian cyber terrorists made attempts to influence the 2016 Presidential election. However, when pressed on the issue, inconsistencies emerged.
Speaker Ryan was not alone in his warmongering. Globalist Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) also joined Speaker Ryan and President Obama in their pursuit of conflict, issuing a joint statement.
“The retaliatory measures announced by the Obama administration today are long overdue,” they wrote. “But ultimately, they are a small price for Russia to pay for its brazen attack on American democracy. We intend to lead the effort in the new Congress to impose stronger sanctions on Russia.”
Paul Ryan has a history of supporting President Obama.
During the last days of the presidential election, Ryan stated he would not “defend” Donald Trump in the last 30 days of his bid for President.
Gateway Pundit reminds us of who Paul Ryan really is:
This is the same Paul Ryan who fought hard to bring in hundreds of thousands of Muslim migrants to our neighborhoods while he’s ensconced in a compound surrounded by a huge wall. This is the same Paul Ryan who has vowed to fight Donald Trump yet has repeatedly folded to Obama.
For Ryan to join Obama with such flimsy evidence seems to indicate he is still intent on undermining a Trump presidency.
FBI reports conflicted with several CIA accounts.
As Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Joel B. Pollak noted “There is zero evidence Russian hackers messed with voting.”
Given the lack of evidence proving Russia interfered in U.S. elections, it seems clear this is another attempt by Paul Ryan to delegitimize Trump’s presidency rather than an actual attempt to combat cyber terrorism.
