Ryan said he normally avoid commenting on what is being said in the presidential election, but made exception to Trump’s comments.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who was once seen as an independent thinker, proved he's over it, when he lamented to other senators he wanted to go home because no one is paying any attention anyway.

Speaking to Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN), who has already admitted that Trump is guilty but he doesn't care, Romney was overheard complaining during the last break.
