Paul Ryan says he avoids looking at Twitter

Trump, in an apparent warning to his fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director, said Friday that James Comey had better hope there are no "tapes" of their conversations. "The words only go so far if there isn't an actual call for an independent investigation, so we hope we see that next".

"This involves intelligence collection".

In response to Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe's testimony before a Senate committee in Washington Thursday that Comey "enjoyed broad support within the FBI", Ryan countered that Comey had lost the support of senior leadership at the Justice Department.

Ryan said the president has never asked him for a loyalty pledge - as the president reported asked Comey for, and Comey declined - and said he's never given thought to whether his own conversations with President Trump are recorded.

"I'm not going to compare any of this to the past", Ryan said. "I'm going to leave it to the president to talk about and defend his tweets".

"The people at the FBI who do the investigations are still there and working on the job", he said.

"As speaker of the House, he has the responsibility to move the moral compass of this country", Palmer said.

"I try not to look at Twitter too often these days, to be honest with you", Ryan joked, drawing laughter from the students.
