Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Texas accused House Speaker Paul Ryan of defending the "deep state" and said that his congressional colleagues were talking about replacing him for the first time.

In this May 10, 2018 photo, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., meets with reporters during his weekly news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Ryan's comment was the most recent from Democratic and Republican politicians warning the president not to halt or stifle the Mueller investigation. "This is about Russian Federation and what they did and making sure they don't do it again", Ryan, R-Wis., told reporters, in comments excoriating federal law enforcement agencies for not being more forthcoming with documents that lawmakers had requested until Ryan personally intervened. He went on to concede that although he does not know the "technical" answer to the question of whether a president can self-pardon, Trump "obviously" shouldn't do so. Branding the effort "spygate" on Twitter, Trump said it was "starting to look like one of the biggest political scandals in USA history".

"The briefing is expected on Monday or Tuesday, depending on members' schedules", the Justice official said.

Dobbs then launched into a tirade against Ryan, asking why Republicans don't say, "Mr".

No court has ruled on whether a president can pardon himself, though the Department of Justice wrote in a 1974 opinion, days before former President Richard Nixon resigned in disgrace, that the president "cannot pardon himself". That echoed a House intelligence committee report released earlier this year.

Democrats made similar comments immediately after the briefing. "The Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation take congressional inquiries seriously and believe that the documents provided next week will be valuable to the Gang of Eight".

Gaetz expressed frustration over Ryan's comments earlier Wednesday that he agreed with Rep. Nevertheless, Ryan made clear that he doesn't believe Trump should pardon himself. A source briefed on the meeting said the materials were brought to last month's briefing but were left on the table untouched. Yes", Giuliani said. "Is he going to do it? No. "We are not going to budge". We're waiting for some more document requests.
