Subject: Paul Ryan, John McCain, and Mitch McConnell. Rayn and McCain have strong primary challenges.
From reliably left/liberal ABC News (They are not telling you the full story about Khizr Khan’s connections, pro-Sharia views,and other pertinent facts), and are obviously in the tank for Hillary:
“John McCain is joining the chorus of Republicans condemning Donald Trump’s attacks on a slain Muslim American soldier’s parents, who made an emotional case against Trump’s candidacy at the Democratic National Convention.
“Arizona is watching. It is time for Donald Trump to set the example for our country and the future of the Republican Party,” the Arizona senator and 2008 GOP presidential nominee said in a statement. “While our party has bestowed upon him the nomination, it is not accompanied by unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us.”
Humayun Khan, a Muslim U.S. Army captain, was killed in a suicide car bombing in Iraq in 2004. His father, Khizr Khan, spoke out against Trump at the Democratic convention, with his wife, Ghazala Khan, standing by his side.
In McCain’s long and strongly worded statement, he praised Khan’s service to the military and sought to distance the Republican Party from Trump’s controversial remarks.
“I cannot emphasize enough how deeply I disagree with Mr. Trump’s statement,” McCain said. “I hope Americans understand that the remarks do not represent the views of our Republican Party, its officers or candidates.”
McCain’s condemnation of Trump’s remarks echoed sentiments expressed by Republican leadership on Capitol Hill. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan also issued statements strongly defending the Khan family.
McCain’s statement went a step further than Ryan’s and McConnell’s, neither of whom mentioned Trump by name in their repudiation of the GOP nominee’s comments.
“All Americans should value the patriotic service of the patriots who volunteer to selflessly defend us in the armed services. And as I have long made clear, I agree with the Khans and families across the country that a travel ban on all members of a religion is simply contrary to American values,” McConnell wrote.”

Mike Scruggs comments:
Paul Ryan is one of eleven US Congressmen who have received political contributions from individuals associated with Muslim Brotherhood front organizations.in 2016.
On March 30, Paul Ryan accepted a $1000.00 donation from Malik Asad associated with CAIR a Muslim Brotherhood front that has been found guilty of laundering money to the HAMAS terrorist organization. See Islamist-Watch.org.
The big Muslim Brotherhood political contributions do not usually show up in individual donations. Since 2010 we have the phenomenon of “dark money” PACs whose donors are not revealed. They have been spending huge amounts on campaigns since 2014.
There is a bill in the House( HR3892) to outlaw the Muslim Brotherhood, but thanks to Paul Ryan, it is probably not going to see the light of day. Ryan’s challenger in the August 9 Wisconsin 1 Primary is business Paul Nehlen, who is critical of Ryan’s immigration and pro-amnesty positions and record and his frequent criticism of Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Here is a description of HR3892 from investors.com
“Jihad: Washington’s strategy to defeat terrorism is lacking in many ways, but none more than its failure to attack it at its root: the Muslim Brotherhood. But that may change with the fast-tracking of a bill to outlaw the terror network.
In a major development on this important front, the House Judiciary Committee Wednesdaypassed a bill to effectively ban the Muslim Brotherhood as a designated terrorist group, 17-10.
The legislation — which freezes Brotherhood assets and also outs its front groups, including hundreds in the U.S. — is headed for the House floor. Its passage there is likely since the GOP leadership supports HR 3892, which has 28 co-sponsors and is steadily gaining new backers each week.
If a companion bill introduced in the Senate by GOP Sen. Ted Cruz passes, it would tee the ban up for a GOP president to sign into law — a dream of FBI case agents across the country, who find elements of the Brotherhood showing up in virtually every terrorism case they work.
The pro-jihad Brotherhood gave rise to Hamas and al-Qaida, and shares ideology with ISIS.”
