Ryan says special counsel Muller is not 'biased partisan'

House Speaker Paul Ryan Holds Weekly Press Briefing At The Capitol

MILWAUKEE (AP) _ House Speaker Paul Ryan says special counsel Robert Mueller is not a biased partisan, even as President Donald Trump has decried the investigation into ties between his campaign and Russia as a witch hunt.

Ryan commented Monday during an interview on the ``Jay Weber Show'' on WISN-AM in Milwaukee. Ryan was asked why more Republicans aren't defending Trump in light of the Mueller investigation.

 Ryan says the facts uncovered through the Mueller and congressional investigations will ``vindicate themselves.'' And he says there's no question that Mueller is a Republican, noting that he was first appointed FBI director under Republican President George W. Bush in 2001. 

Ryan says, ``I don't think many people are saying Bob Mueller is a biased partisan. He's anything but.''
