Congressman: Ryan Will Resign ‘In 30 To 60 Days’ And Be Replaced By Scalise



In a major news development, U.S. Republican Rep. Mark Amodei of Nevada said that a rumor is going around that House Speaker Paul Ryan will resign his position and be replaced by Rep. Steve Scalise.

Scalise, a staunch conservative and President Trump supporter who was shot at the Congressional Baseball Game practice and nearly died, would present an America First vision for the House speakership that has been sorely lacking during Ryan’s tenure. Scalise has been talked about as a potential replacement for Ryan for a long time, even before his shooting. After getting shot, Scalise affirmed in a statement to Big League Politics that he supports the Second Amendment more vociferously than ever.

Here is the reporting from the Reno Gazette Journal, presented without comment:

“The rumor mill is that Paul Ryan is getting ready to resign in the next 30 to 60 days and that Steve Scalise will be the new Speaker,” Amodei said.

“Now that is interesting because nobody has talked to members (of the U.S. House) on how they are going to vote (on new leadership),” Amodei said. “Now, maybe they have talked to all of the members but me. I don’t know, so that is the rumor mill from last week.”
