Last week Tim Ryan failed in his attempt to oust Nancy Pelosi from house leadership. The Ohio congressman was the choice of young insurgent Democrats who realize that Pelosi’s reign has been a total disaster for Democrats. Ryan ultimately lost, but his insurrection isn’t over.
This week, Ryan joined MSNBC to explain why he’s backing a waiver for Donald Trump’s Secretary of Defense nominee, General Mattis. Mattis’ requires a congressional waiver to serve, and high ranking Democrats like New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand have indicated that they’re going to fight against that waiver.
Ryan? Not so much.
