Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has called for a 'cleanse' of the FBI'.

Using terms reminiscent of Soviet Russia, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has called for a 'cleanse' of the FBI.

House Speaker Paul Ryan called for a "cleanse" of the FBI and the release of a classified GOP memo that allegedly outlines surveillance abuse against the Trump campaign, Fox News reported Tuesday.

Echoing a call for 'full transparency' by the Trump administration, Ryan recommended publicly releasing the Nunes memo, a memo that has been called 'extraordinarily reckless' by Trump's own Justice Department.

"I think we should disclose all this stuff [in the memo]. It's the best disinfectant. Accountability, transparency — for the sake of the reputation of our institutions," added Ryan, who had previously skirted around questions about the memo.

At a brief press conference, Ryan claimed that there could have been 'malfeasance' by some members of the FBI.
