House Speaker Paul Ryan Announces Retirement

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Speaker Ryan announced he won't be seeking reelection in the upcoming 2018 midterms, with even more Republican members of Congress likely to follow his lead in the coming weeks.  
  • The timing of the announcement has caused some issues for congressional Republicans.  
  • Bipartisan legislation aimed at protecting the special counsel has made some progress in the Senate but still faces some hurdles in that chamber and would face larger issues in the House.
