The May 18 front-page article “Ryan swore Republicans to secrecy”
said that a tape of a congressional meeting held by House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) and associates reveals that Mr. Ryan asked everyone present to pledge secrecy about what was discussed — Russian influence in U.S. elections. So now members of the House play at being the Mafia? What does it take for people of elected office to hold allegiance to country and Constitution above all else? The men and women elected to these high offices swore an oath that appears to mean nothing to them.
