Paul Ryan said Congress will 'follow the facts' when it comes to Comey and Trump


House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said during a press conference on Wednesday that he wanted Congress to "follow the facts, wherever they may be" when thinking about and investigating alleged ties between Russian officials and President Trump's campaign. 

"Our job is to be responsible sober and focused only on gathering the facts," said Ryan. 

Ryan himself said, "There are a lot of unanswered questions." And he's absolutely right.

The press conference took place a day after it was revealed that a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey reportedly detailed a request made by President Trump of Comey to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin offered on Wednesday to hand over transcripts of the recent meeting between Trump and Russian officials.

Ryan also said that he wanted to hear from Comey himself.
