Is Paul Ryan going to resign as Speaker of the House?

March 26, 2018

  Representative Mark Amodei appeared of Nevada spoke to a local television show and he said it was rumored in Washington that Paul Ryan was going to step down as Speaker of the House within 30-60 days. Here is more:

Rep. Mark Amodei (R-Nev.) told a local news station that there is a “rumor” that Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) will resign soon, stepping up speculation about the Speaker’s political future.

“The rumor mill is that Paul Ryan is getting ready to resign in the next 30 to 60 days and that Steve Scalise will be the new Speaker,” Amodei told Nevada Newsmakers, referring to the Majority Whip.

“Now this is interesting, because no one has talked to members on how they are going to vote,” he added. “Now, maybe they have talked to all of the members but me. I don’t know, so that is the rumor mill from last week.’”

  I am not going to pretend I know anything about Mark Amodei, in fact I do not recall ever hearing his name before, so I do not know how reliable this is. But there has to be something here, would Mark Amodei go on television and make this up? I would not think so. Would Mark Amodei go on television and spread a rumor if it was not more than a rumor? I would tend to think not but maybe he has an agenda and Paul Ryan is beginning to be pushed out, but that is just speculation on my part.

  For his part, and for what it is worth, Paul Ryan is denying this claim:

“The speaker is not resigning,” said Ryan’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong in a statement on Monday.

  Of Course we heard for weeks that H.R. McMaster was not on the chopping block but when he resigned we were told this was in the works for weeks so those rumors ended up being true so who knows what to believe any more? Quid est veritas?

  Personally I hope this is true, Paul Ryan cannot step down fast enough for me. I do not think he should have been named Speaker of the House in the first place.

    Just watch what replaces him. The swamp dwellers will go pretty deep to find something as slimy as Ryan.
