Paul Ryan claims that a "lot" of GOP members wanted to impeach Trump

but "didn't have the courage" to do it.


Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) recently revealed that while many Republicans support impeaching former President Donald Trump, many "lack the courage" to do so.


Ryan spoke at an event in Florence


  • South Carolina, on Wednesday, June 1
  • where he confirmed his support for Rep.
  • Tom Rice (RS.C), who also endorsed him.


Ryan also praised the congressman for his courage in voting in favor of impeaching Trump. After the rebellion in the U.S. Capitol, Rice was one of only ten Republicans to vote with Democrats to impeach Trump.


As a result of their historic vote

Trump became the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice.


He became one of the Republican lawmakers Trump intends to defeat as a result of his vote. Now, he is locked in a heated election battle with Representative Russell Frey, a candidate endorsed by Trump (Republika Srpska). Ryan, on the other hand, believes Rice is the best candidate for the post.


"There were a lot of people who wanted to vote like Tom


but didn't have the courage to do it," Ryan said, according to the Myrtle Beach Sun News.


"There are a lot of people who say they're going to vote for their conscience, they're going to vote for the Constitution, they're going to vote for their convictions, but when it's difficult to do that, they don't," he said.


Despite his fondness for Rice


  1. Ryan made clear his position on political issues.
  2. Rice said Republicans should support Trump's policies
  3. not his own.


He described his re-election campaign


  • in the House as a battle between "nerds" like him and Ryan
  • who want to achieve conservative policies
  • and "flamethrowers" who put Trump above all else.


Ryan's latest comments came just days after he rebuked "recreational" lawmakers who, according to HuffPost, focus more on building a noticeable "brand" rather than working with colleagues to pass legislation. "


"If you're going to want to entertain


if you're going to try to show that you're better than anyone else in your ecosystem," Ryan stated at the time.


On Saturday, Trump took to his Truth Social platform to call Ryan a "pathetic loser" and a "weak RINO" - Republican by name only.


Trump said:


 "Did anyone notice that Fox News became weak (bad!) When the weak Renault Paul Ryan, despised in greater Wisconsin for being a pathetic loser, joined. "


After leaving office, Ryan


a Wisconsin Republican who served as Speaker of the House of Representatives from 2015 to 2019, joined Fox Corporation's board of directors.


Trump complained that Fox News would not discuss the "blatantly rigged 2020 presidential election," echoing his false claims of election fraud.


"This is why our country is going to hell


elections have consequences. Get Ryan from the board and report the news as it should be reported. Stop taking negative ads from perverts and others!!! "


Trump did not mention perverse commercials or who the perverts were.
