Paul Ryan is waiting for the White House to give a 'full explanation' of meeting with Russians

A spokesman for Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said he is waiting for more information to come out regarding The Washington Post's report that President Trump shared highly classified information with Russian officials during a meeting last week in the Oval Office.

"We have no way to know what was said, but protecting our nation's secrets is paramount," Doug Andres said in a statement. "The speaker hopes for a full explanation of the facts from the administration."

Last July after FBI Director James Comey announced the FBI had completed its investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, Ryan told the public where he stands when it comes to a person — at least a Democrat — possibly sharing classified information, saying, "Individuals who are 'extremely careless' with classified information should be denied further access to such info."
