The U.S. sees the Kurds as strong military partners, but the Turkish government says they have ties to the Kurdistan Workers' Party, which it views as a terrorist organization.

Some news from what one can only hope is the beginning of an eventual end for the Trump presidency: former national security adviser Micheal Flynn told the Trump transition team that he was under investigation for secretly working as a foreign agent for Turkey "weeks" before the inauguration, but Donald Trump hired him as national security adviser anyway.

Politico's John Bresnahan‏ had a similar item, noting that he heard from some congressional Republicans last night that the president's comments to Comey were an example of Trump "just spouting off".

But all the questions Ryan was asked Wednesday centered on the Russian Federation probe, Trump's firing of Comey and the Speaker's confidence in the commander in chief.

Ryan insisted Republicans won't be distracted from enacting the legislative agenda that they promised during the 2016 campaign. "We can't deal with speculation and innuendo, and there is clearly a lot of politics being played. The investigation needs to be done right and it needs to be done swiftly, so the American people can get the answers they deserve, and we can move on with the business of creating jobs, renegotiating NAFTA, and investing in our infrastructure".

"As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity", he said in the statement.
