The list of people who Donald Trump may bring crashing down with him in the Russian collusion scandal seems to grow by the day. Could that list now include House Speaker Paul Ryan? According to at least one political analyst, the answer is yes.
Analyst Simon Rosenberg told MSNBC anchors recently that he believes that Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer and Paul Ryan could all end up in prison for their roles in the scandal:
“You had the RNC, Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer sending out emails every day promoting Russian disinformation that they knew was from Russia, and they aided and abetted the campaign. My own view is that Sean Spicer and Reince Priebus got their jobs in the White House because they were so instrumental in helping make the Russian campaign a success.

The same is true with Paul Ryan and the House Republicans. They used the materials in House race after House race after House race. So all of these Republican leaders were complicit in the actual action of the Russian government in 2016, and they’re defending their president because they’re part of the crime. It is clear that Sean Spicer, Reince Priebus, Paul Ryan, others who were part of the RCCC are all liable for the aiding and abetting statute, and could be prosecuted and go to jail.”
It’s important to remember, as The Palmer Report points out, that “Reince Priebus was RNC Chair during the election, meaning that he was working hand in hand with Republican Speaker Paul Ryan at the time. Sean Spicer was also an RNC employee at the time. As Palmer Report previously pointed out, Priebus was seen entering Trump Tower the morning the Russia meeting took place there.”

Some federal prison may have to open a whole new wing by 2020 to house all of the fallout from Donald Trump and his corrupt family/administration.
