Donald Trump is fighting against a coup attempt to remove him from office.

He has repeatedly blasted special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as a witch hunt.

So Paul Ryan shocked everyone when he stabbed Trump in the back with his comments about Mueller.

Trump recently took to Twitter to point out the ridiculous nature of the Russia investigation and the lack of support he’s received from the Republican establishment.

But not everyone agreed.

Speaker Paul Ryan defended Mueller’s honor and did not back up his President from a politically motivated hit job.

Breitbart reports:

“Monday on WISN’s “The Jay Weber Show,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election interference by saying Mueller was “anything but” a “biased partisan.”

A listener asked Ryan a question about why Republicans in Congress are not doing more to defend Trump against “what is becoming an obvious witch-hunt.”

Ryan replied, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican, who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration, and crossed over — I mean and stayed on until his term ended.”

He continued, “I don’t think many people are saying Bob Mueller is a person who is a biased partisan. He’s really, sort of, anything but.”

He added, “The point is, we have an investigation in the House, an investigation in the Senate, and a special counsel, which sort of de-politicizes this stuff and gets it out of the political theater, and that is, I think, better to get this off to the side. I think the facts will vindicate themselves, and then let’s just go do our jobs.”

Ryan showed more loyalty to the prosecutor tasked with destroying Trump than he did the President from his own party.

It was an unbelievable betrayal.

But Ryan is of the establishment.

He is an open borders globalist who favors mass migration and international trade deals.

It’s in his interest to see Trump and his nationalist brand of conservatism destroyed.

And apparently he is willing to give credibility to an investigative team stacked with big money Democrat donors who are gunning for Donald Trump.
