Ryan On Iran Ransom Payment

—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) released the following statement today on the Obama administration’s $400 million ransom payment to Iran:

“Today, the State Department admitted what we’ve long suspected—that the president and his administration have been misleading us since January about whether he ransomed the freedom of the Americans unjustly imprisoned in Iran. The president owes the American people a full accounting of his actions and the dangerous precedent he has set.”
