Paul Ryan and the Exodus of Republicans From Congress

"I intend to full my serve term", he announced. "And that's really it right there".

"I don't see a Trump acolyte becoming speaker". The party he leads is on course for a drubbing, and possibly a historic drubbing.

Ryan joins a parade of legislators - majority Republicans - who've said they have had enough, one way or another, and will give up their seats. For months the speaker has battled rumors about his retirement. Ryan had more trust with the hardliners in the House. Trump showed impatience with Congress' pace in dealing with his proposals, and Ryan had to deal with a president who shared little of his interest in policy detail.

In 2012, he became GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's running mate. NBC's Chuck Todd asked Ryan on NBC's "Meet the Press".

Ryan, incredibly, answered by praising Trump. Once she let him know that this type of display makes her feel unwelcome, the congressman said he feels bad about it too. His decision fueled fresh doubts about the party's ability to fend off a Democratic wave, fed by opposition to Trump, in November.

"Not at all", Ryan maintained.

United Kingdom writes to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation claiming Russian Federation spied on Skripals for 5 years
In an executive summary made public at Britain's request, it said "the toxic chemical was of high purity" but did not name it. Russia's ambassador to the UK, Alexandr Yakovenko, said he had not read Sir Mark's letter but denied the claims in it.

Still, the former Bakersfield deli owner isn't a sure bet to succeed Ryan, who is staying on as party leader until he leaves office in January.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump announced via Twitter that he would be firing "nice and new and "smart" missiles into Syria and dared Russian Federation to shoot them down.

Mr Ryan also said he has been assured by the White House that Mr Trump does not intend to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating potential collusion between Mr Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mr Mueller's probe. Bryce pounced on Ryan's withdrawal from the race: "We just repealed Paul Ryan", he tweeted.

Now Republicans are dashing for the exits. Several GOP veterans have announced plans to retire in recent months and another, Rep. Dennis Ross of Florida, quickly followed Ryan on Wednesday. And Ryan worked those forces the best he could given the circumstances before him.

Republicans were quick to say they would forcefully defend the seat, and prospective candidates are already scrambling to assess a possible run. "It's going to be a referendum on the president of the United States and his conduct in office".

"I would fully support Jordan", said Jones.

Man City Premier League Champions as United suffer defeat to West Brom
The Premier League side yesterday confirmed the appointment of Terraneo, who worked at Fenerbahce during the 2015/16 season. But you wouldn't have guessed it with the way Mourinho set his side out on Sunday afternoon, at Old Trafford no less.

Maybe they'll lose 50 seats and maybe they'll lose another 50?

When giving examples of what kind of recruitment he's been involved with, Ryan mentioned Rep. Mia Love, the Utah Republican whose parents are Haitian immigrants and whose criticism of the president is well-known. He said he wanted to be more than a "weekend dad". No speaker has given up the gavel on his own terms since Democrat Tip O'Neill in 1987.

House conservatives told reporters after Ryan's announcement that they want him to be bold in his final year as a legislator by seeking the entitlement reforms and budget cuts he failed to achieve in the last spending bill passed by Congress.

"I think what we want to do is focus on getting our jobs done, what we want to do is focus on executing our agenda, focus on fighting for our majority, and all these other things would be needless distractions from the task at hand", Ryan said. Yet Ryan still trusts.

These same people brought his speakership to ruin.
