Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan criticized his fellow Republicans for failing to accuse former President Donald Trump of his role on Jan. 6, when he supported a South Carolina House member targeted by the ex-president.

“There were a lot of people who wanted to vote like Tom, but just didn’t have the guts to do it,” Ryan said Wednesday, speaking of Rep. Tom Rice, who is one of the 10 House Republicans to Vote in favor of Trump’s second impeachment.

In February, Trump backed South Carolina State Representative Russell Fry in the race to oust Rice as several Republicans challenge the 10-year incumbent.

South Carolina Congressman Tom Rice, the coward who abandoned his voters by yielding to Nancy Pelosi and the radical left, and who actually voted against me on charges of hoax #2, must be removed from office as soon as possible – and we have the right man to do it!’ Trump said in Fry’s approval email.

The South Carolina primary is on June 14.

On Wednesday, Ryan — who retired from politics in 2019 — traveled to Florence, South Carolina, to vouch for Rice, whom he got to know through their time together on the House Ways and Means Committee.

Myrtle Beach’s Sun News reported: that Ryan Rice called a “man of conviction.”

“There are a lot of people who say they’re going to vote their conscious mind, they’re going to vote for the Constitution, they’re going to vote for their beliefs, but when it gets hard to do that, they don’t. do it,” Ryan said. “Tom Rice is the kind of person you want in Congress.”

The former Speaker of the House described Rice as a “workhorse” and suggested his party had been overrun with show ponies.

“This is such a crystal clear case where you have a hardworking, effective, senior congressman who deserves reelection versus people who are just trying to be celebrities trying to help Trump with his revenge,” Ryan said.

“That’s not what voters want, voters want people to focus on their solutions, not Trump’s revenge and that’s a clear case for me here,” he added.

GOP representative Adam Kinzinger, who voted in favor of Trump's second impeachment, vouched for his colleague, saying:

Rice characterized Ryan as a fellow nerd.

“This guy here, he’s a nerd like me,” the congressman said of his former colleague. “He wants to solve problems.”

Rice also gained the support of former New Jersey chief executive Chris Christie, who was once an ally of Trump but has again criticized him.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, another impeachment advocate who is pulling out of Congress instead of trying to win a MAGA first, shared Ryan’s comments about “many” Republicans quietly supporting impeachment — saying they were true.

‘This is a fact. I’ve talked to some,” Kinzinger tweeted Thursday.

In the House, Trump’s largest impeachment financier is former House Republican No. 3, Rep. Liz Cheney, who will be on the primary ballot in Wyoming in August.

He has a mixed record for 2022 endorsements to date, with his Ohio Senate pick JD Vance going through easily to the general election, while his Pennsylvania pick Dr. Mehmet Oz, still stuck in a recount against opponent David McCormick.

Herbster was plagued in the run up to Election Day by serial allegations of groping at least eight women, with Trump backing him anyway.
