House Speaker Paul Ryan said Wednesday he doesn’t agree with President Donald Trump that former FBI Director James Comey is a “nut job.”
His remarks were in response to a New York Times report that the President bragged to two top Russian officials earlier this month that firing “nut job” Comey eased “great pressure” on him.

He added later, “I like Jim Comey.” Read more at CNN.
