Clinton Campaign Circulated Paul Ryan Relative as Possible Supreme Court Pick

Another reason as to why Ryan tried to sabotage Trump's campaign?

Hillary Clinton’s campaign circulated the name of one of Paul Ryan’s relatives as a potential Supreme Court pick, suggesting a conflict of interest that could feed in to the Republican Speaker of the House’s dislike for Donald Trump.

An email released in part 19 of the Wikileaks Podesta dump features an article sent by Hillary advisor Sara Solow to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and Hillary’s foreign policy advisor Jake Sullivan on February 29, 2016.

The piece draws attention to Ketanji Brown Jackson, a judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

“She was confirmed by without any Republican opposition in the Senate not once, but *twice*. She was confirmed to her current position in 2013 by unanimous consent – that is, without any stated opposition. She was also previously confirmed unanimously to a seat on the U.S. Sentencing Commission (where she became vice chair),” reads the email.

Ryan is in the house, which has nothing to do with confirming judges.
