This morning there are some very interesting things coming out of the conservative media and here are a few worth reading on Paul Ryan and Hillary Clinton.
Let’s start off with Matt Boyle at Breitbart and their exclusive story on how Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) did a bait and switch job on the Freedom Caucus.
In the private meeting inside the House Ways and Means Committee hearing room in the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday afternoon, chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) promised the House Freedom Caucus the world to try to earn their official endorsement. He failed.
Among the things that Ryan promised the members were a return to regular order, changes to the steering committee that decides committee assignments centralizing power in the Speaker’s office.
Ryan even promised to give up the Speaker’s five votes on the committee and an end to retaliation against Republican members who vote their conscience.
He reiterated his promise made in the full GOP conference on Tuesday of no amnesty bill under President Obama, which conspicuously did not extend to the next president and an end to crisis to crisis governance under outgoing Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)
The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross penned a piece called:” Benghazi Testimony Shows State Department Was Prepping For Media Frenzy When Hillary Email Address Was Discovered.”
Months before Hillary Clinton was forced to hand her emails over to the State Department, the agency was battening down the hatches in anticipation of media inquiries about the peculiar email arrangement she operated as secretary of state, a transcript of Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills reveals.
The State Department was “preparing for what they anticipated to be inquiries that would come once the materials were provided,” Mills said during her Sept. 3 interview.
Democratic members of the House Select Committee on Benghazi released the 307 page transcript of Mills’ interview Wednesday, the day before Clinton testifies in front of the panel.
The revelation that the State Department was preparing for a media frenzy sheds light on the level of concern within the agency over Clinton’s off-the-books email setup. It also indicates that those tasked with responding to the revelation knew the arrangement would attract intense scrutiny
