House Speaker Paul Ryan pushes tax reform at event in New Albany

James Comey said he will miss the FBI and its mission

"You know that I've long passed in my budgets comprehensive Medicare legislation because that is the biggest one of all the unfunded liabilities", Ryan said.

Trump's comments come after his description of his decision to fire FBI Director James B. Comey in an NBC News interview Thursday flatly contradicted the accounts provided earlier by White House officials, including Vice President Pence, exposing their explanations as misleading and in some cases false. "First of all, we have three investigations going on right now".

Speaker Paul Ryan toured Geneva Supply in Delavan Friday afternoon, then talked to group of high school kids, participating in a business program at the company. "I think the intelligence community is the ones that should do this because don't forget: the methods and that the sources of our intelligence gathering are also at play here, and we have to be very sensitive so that we don't compromise that information as well".

When pressed by Wisconsin reporters about the warning to Comey, Ryan turned to an often-invoked strategy he uses whenever asked about an inflammatory comment made by Trump on Twitter.

Ryan has defended the firing and rejected calls for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Russia's involvement in the election. "I'm doing it in such a way where constituents don't go into a harassing environment". About 175 people gathered in Kenosha for a town hall style event with Madison-Area congressman Mark Pocan.

But health care was on the mind of demonstrators who held signs and chanted in front of Badger High school in Lake Geneva and Prestige Paints in Delavan, Ryan's two stops Friday afternoon.

"The goal of our health care bill is to make sure that people can get affordable health care coverage, including people with pre-existing conditions, and that means don't have a one-size-fits-all, costly program that's collapsing like Obamacare", Ryan said.

Ryan also deflected a question about whether he would be OK with Trump recording their conversations, saying: "I'd have to give some thought to that".

"He basically called me when I got off a flight to tell me he had made the decision", he said.

"I get it: 'He's speaker; he's got a lot of stuff he's got to do, '" Breit said.

RYAN: That's the way I see it.
