Paul Ryan continues to pull out all the stops to elect Hillary Clinton as President.

At every turn, he has undermined the GOP nominee with rebukes, half-hearted statements of support, and constantly fuels the speculation that he may withdraw his endorsement.

And his latest announcement could be the final nail in the coffin.

At the second Presidential debate, Donald Trump turned in a strong performance.

Pundits across the spectrum praised Trump’s performance, declaring he had successfully staunched the bleeding caused from a leaked 2005 tape where he had made several crude remarks.

However, Paul Ryan convened a House Republican Conference call the next day and promptly cut Trump loose.

Politico reports:

“Ryan told his members that “you all need to do what’s best for you in your district,” said a source on the call, giving rank-and-file lawmakers political cover to disavow Trump. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California urged the lawmakers to take a deep breath and focus on their own races.

 It was the biggest and most dramatic split between the highest-ranking Republican lawmaker on Capitol Hill and the party’s presidential nominee. Ryan has pushed back repeatedly on Trump’s most outrageous comments or positions, but until now, he has refused to openly break with the nominee.

 Ryan and House Republicans are cognizant they could face a backlash from Trump supporters. With less than a month to go in the campaign, an open rupture between the presidential nominee and down-ballot Republicans could turn off independent voters and depress turnout among base voters, compounding their problems from the top of the ticket.”

 Conservatives in the House were outraged.

Many on the call blasted Ryan’s decision.

The New York Times reports:

“The reaction from hard-liners was swift and angry: Over the course of an hour, a stream of conservative lawmakers spoke up to urge their colleagues not to give up on Mr. Trump, and chided Mr. Ryan for surrendering prematurely in the presidential race.

One member, Representative Dana Rohrabacher of California, attacked Republicans stepping away from Mr. Trump as “cowards,” three lawmakers said. Another, Representative Trent Franks of Arizona, used graphic language to describe abortion and said allowing Mrs. Clinton into the White House would end with fetuses being destroyed “limb from limb.”

In an effort to quiet the uproar, Mr. Ryan chimed back in after about 45 minutes to assure members that he was not withdrawing his endorsement of Mr. Trump, but rather doing what he considered to be in the best interests of the House.”

Trump responded on Twitter and ripped Ryan for surrendering in every fight and failing to advance on any sort of conservative agenda.

Establishment Republicans have already faced intense voter backlash for abandoning Trump.

When Nevada Senate candidate, Congressmen Joe Heck, announced he was withdrawing his endorsement of Trump during a rally, he was lustily booed by the crowd in attendance.

That same day, Ryan was heckled and booed at his annual Fall Fest event.

By sabotaging Trump, Ryan is trying to throw the election to Hillary.

Any break from Trump by the national party could depress GOP turnout.

So why is Ryan working to elect Hillary Clinton?
