Paul Ryan Says Moore Should 'Step Aside,' Allegations 'Are Credible'
CNN ^ | 11/14/17 | Phil Mattingly, Lauren Fox and Eli Watkins

Posted on 11/14/2017 2:46:03 PM PST by Enlightened1

House Speaker Paul Ryan called allegations leveled against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore about pursuing relationships with teenage girls and committing sexual assault "credible" and that he should step aside.

"He should step aside," Ryan told CNN Tuesday morning. "Number one, these allegations are credible. Number two, if he cares about the values that he claims to care about, then he should step aside." Ryan becomes the latest high-profile Republican voice to call on Moore to step aside, following more than two dozen Republican senators, including some of whom have suggested voting to expel Moore from the Senate should he win the December 12 special election.

Hey Ryan if you really believe what you say, then how come you do not apply the same standard to Hillary, Obama, Lois Lerner, Holder, etc....?

One thing for sure. When it comes to stabbing conservatives and President Trump in the back... Paul Ryan is certainly a competitor.

Why does the Republican House members continue to elect this back stabbing jerk as the House Speaker? Ryan is absolutely horrible!

They’re not credible in the least because he doesn’t have any accusers AFTER the 1970s. Did he suddenly get cured? I thought being a pedo was incurable.

Most of the allegations have been proven fake, and Paul Ryan says it credible.

Pictures of Joe Biden groping women and little girls were credible and Ryan never asked him to step aside.

I don’t find them credible. The 5th accuser played her scripted part with fabricated supporting evidence and story that doesn’t ring true.

The truth remains to be discovered.

The issue at this point is whether there is reasonable suspicion.

I suppose a public servant (ONLY someone on the Right of course - those on the Left are so corrupt - a clear double standard) should be above reasonable suspicion of ACTUAL sexual wrongdoing (not, “Hi sweetie, you rook marverous...”).

Hey Paul! Would you buy a used car from Gloria Allred? How about a couple of old nags?

I wish I had the money to pay guys to accuse McConnell of being a boy rapist. Get Gloria Allred, do they whole crocodile tears press conference. It’s not something you could ever prove or disprove because it’s a he said/he said situation. And you make it far back enough to guarantee there’s no evidence, no witnesses, shaky memories. That’s exactly what they did with Moore. It’s ALL BS. That’s why he’s never had any accusers afterwards even though they say pedophilia is incurable.

Just an observation: I don’t know what kind of car Moore had in 1977 or what year, but most cars then weren’t electrified with power windows and locks. The locks were manually applied, individually for each door, and manually released.
I have owned a number of cars of that vintage and the locks were all manually operated.

One other thing, if any of the doors were locked, they could be released from the inside by pulling on the inside door opener handle.

So, unless this woman at the time was mentally deficient or now she is lying, all she had to do was pull the inside door handle and escape into the night.

Just saying.

Paul Ryan is not credible. That isn’t an allegation it is an observable fact.

From now on I expect all Congressmen and Senators to step down the day after allegations are lodged against them.

Guilty until proven innocent, that’s the Amerikan way!

So who died and appointed this jerk as grand jury?

Ryan cannot see the elephants rumbling past him while he calls out a man on unproven allegations 40+ years ago. He is mistaken by calling the allegations “credible” as hard evidence is now coming in and the stories are falling apart.

But don’t let facts confuse a RINO swamp creature.

The charges from the 1970s are FALSE.

Why was not anything said until right before he is about to win the Senate race.

I can’t believe you give crdibility to the Swamp that infested with Pedos.

If Roy Moore was a real Pedo, then they would welcome him. So would the filthy, lying rat media.

Did Obama step aside when his birth certificate was shown to be a complete and utter forgery so poorly conceived a high school student could have accomplished it? I don't put much stock in the opinions of swamp denizens like Paul Ryan.

Non-provable allegations 40 years old and one month before an election are NOT credible.
