Paul Ryan Pledges The House will Probe the Bowe Bergdahl Deal

Rep. Paul Ryan pledged Friday night that House Republicans will investigate President Barack Obama’s deal to secure the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. 
At an after-dinner speech on the eve of Virginia’s GOP state convention, the former vice presidential nominee urged activists to unite behind Senate candidate Ed Gillespie as their best hope for advancing a conservative agenda. 
For now, he said, the Senate is a “graveyard of good ideas” and Republicans must focus on aggressive oversight as their best bet to hold Obama accountable. 
“I’m part of the IRS investigation,” Ryan told about 600 people in a ballroom at the Hotel Roanoke. “We’ve got the Benghazi investigation, the Veterans Affairs investigation, and we’re going to do an investigation about this troop transfer with the Taliban. So we’ve got a lot on our plate.” 
The Wisconsin congressman said the country would start to turn the corner if Sen. Harry Reid became minority leader, stressing that Republican unity is key to make that happen. 
“We agree on the same principles. We actually all agree on the same policies … Every now and again we disagree on tactics,” he said. “So it’s very important that as a party we put those differences aside, we put them in perspective, and like Mel Gibson said in that great movie ‘Braveheart,’ ‘we need to unite the clans!’”
