Paul Ryan is having a rough weak. The other day news broke that he was imitating the Clintons and transferred 7 million from a campaign fund to his nonprofit.

Then he moved his family to Washington to complete the transformation we all knew was coming.

Ryan always wanted to cash in after all the bills he passed for specific special interests and many owe him big time.

Whether he joins a lobby shop or just pulls a Clinton and uses his nonprofit to fund his lifestyle, the results will be the same – Ryan gets his after selling out Trump and America.

Now comes word from Trump’s top guy on immigration, Ken Cuccinelli, that it was Paul Ryan who sank Trump’s immigration bill all along.

From The Hill:

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) acting Director Ken Cuccinelli blamed Ryan for not ensuring passage of a bill sponsored by now-former Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) that would have significantly curtailed legal immigration while granting temporary relief from deportation to so-called Dreamers, immigrants who came to the country illegally as minors.

“And let’s not forget to be bipartisan in our criticism,” Cuccinelli said during a panel discussion at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, a conservative think tank.

“When Paul Ryan was the Speaker, Paul Ryan submarined the best opportunity we had legislatively with the Goodlatte bill, which in the Judiciary Committee came through.

And not enough people will challenge their own leadership in the GOP to beat them down when they are wrong,” Cuccinelli said.

Representatives for Ryan declined to comment. Ryan left Congress in early January.

The House rejected the Goodlatte measure in June 2018, with 41 Republicans joined Democrats in voting against the legislation.

GOP leadership, under Ryan at the time, instead put its weight behind a compromise bill that would have granted a path to citizenship for Dreamers.

“We had leadership there that defended the status quo,” said Cuccinelli. “They were the Chamber of Commerce Congress.”

“They wanted illegal immigration — and this is not just left and right, there’s plenty of people who are often associated with the right, although I don’t know what the Chamber of Commerce is,” he added.
