House speaker Paul Ryan announces retirement

UK envoy Russia and Syria must let inspectors visit Douma

"In order to serve the people in my district honorably, I have to serve them honestly and for me to ask them to vote to re-elect me knowing that I wasn't going to stay is not being honest so I simply can not do that", he said Wednesday morning on Capitol Hill.

Referring to removing Mueller, Republican Senator Bob Corker said on Tuesday it would be a "massive mistake for the president to do that", adding he had told the president as much.

The speaker had been heading toward this decision since late past year, said a person familiar with his thinking, but as recently as February he had considered running for another term.

Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., also praised for Ryan, saying in a statement that, "Despite our differences, I commend his steadfast commitment to our country".

"There's no natural heir apparent", said a Wisconsin GOP strategist about Ryan's 1st Congressional District.

While meeting with staff, Ryan ties a tie for his then-13-year-old son, Charlie, before the swearing in ceremonies on the House floor on the first day of the 115th Congress in January 2017.

He already was facing a potential challenge from Democrat Randy Bryce, who had raised almost $5 million for his campaign, including $2 million in the first quarter of 2018. It also eliminated the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act.

"This morning Speaker Ryan shared with his colleagues that this will be his previous year as a member of the House", Brendan Buck said.

When that was turned down, he engaged in a standoff with authorities in his hometown of Sao Bernardo do Campo, outside Sao Paulo . The sign reads: "Lula, the place for a thief is prison". "I will comply with the order", he told the cheering crowd.

That's to say nothing of other high-profile Texas chairmen including Rep. Pete Sessions, the Dallas Republican who leads the House Rules Committee, or Rep. Kevin Brady, R-The Woodlands, chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee and who is close with Ryan. Ryan told them that serving as speaker has been the professional honor of his life, and he thanked them for the trust they placed in him.

Lawmakers, including senior members of Trump's own Republican Party, have expressed concern after the president suggested he might remove Mueller. But few had openly suggested change was coming, especially not before the November midterm election.

"And Ryan will be leaving behind a fractured Republican Party".

Bryce has already raised $2.1 million in the most recent fundraising quarter. "People on both sides of the aisle are seeing that", Booker told reporters on Wednesday. "That'll be a significant factor in which of them gets picked" to replace Ryan. On April 11, Ryan strode to the podium at the Capitol and declared that he would not seek an 11th term representing his hometown in a southern corner of Wisconsin. He explained that he wanted to prioritize his family and spend more time in Janesville, Wisconsin, where he is from.

The retiring Republican has funneled almost $32 million of that to the National Republican Congressional Committee to help keep the Republican majority in the House in the upcoming 2018 midterms. The action suggests that the party is crumbling under the considerable weight of Donald Trump.

Democrats need to win 23 seats in the November elections to retake a majority in the House, which Republicans have controlled since 2011. She said Ryan has given "his all" to a job that's more a lifestyle than a job. Voters want a public servant who will work as hard as they do to find solutions to our problems in #W101. After all, midterm elections typically revolve around perceptions of the president, and the president we have right now is particularly adept at dominating political life.

This developing story will be updated soon.
