Paul Ryan was "Sobbing" as the Capitol Riots Unfolded
As told in a new book, Paul Ryan was "disturbed" by what he witnessed on the dreadful day...
As Paul Ryan sat and watched the January 6th Capitol attack unfold, he said that he had found himself “sobbing,” according to Mark Leibovich’s new book “Thank You for Your Servitude.” Further than just sobbing, Paul Ryan also speaks about how disturbed he was with the situation considering he had spent his entire adult life in at the Capitol.
“I spent my whole adult life in that building. And I saw my friends, a lot of cops, some of my old security detail – I’m still friends with a bunch of those guys. It really disturbed me, foundationally.”
Paul Ryan said.
According to the book, Paul Ryan, “figured the president would bitch and moan and maybe make a big show of ‘fighting’ for his supporters for a while. Everyone could feel good and victimized. But eventually, Trump would just leave; hopefully, he would know to do this on his own. And everyone could then just get on with their lives.”
The book focuses more so on the Republican leaders who allowed Donald Trump to continue with his push for anarchy. This week, the House Select Committee is intending to hold two public hearings and they focus on the testimony from Pat Cipollone as well as discussions with far-right extremist group leaders.
