Paul Ryan strikes a much different tone than Trump on Russia special counsel Bob Mueller

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) struck a much different tone from President Donald Trump on Monday when he suggested that special counsel Robert Mueller is "anything but" a partisan. "Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration and crossed over and stayed on until his term ended," Ryan said.

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) says that former FBI Director and Russia special counsel Bob Mueller is a Republican, and "anything but" another Washington, D.C., partisan. But a number of other House Republicans say just the opposite.

Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) called on Mueller to resign as head of the special counsel, who Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed to look into Russia's meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, as well as any allegations of collusion between the Kremlin and President Donald Trump's campaign. Trump appointed Rosenstein to his current job.
