House Speaker Paul Ryan Was in Dallas Today

Interim Police Chief David Pughes has the evidence.

House Speaker Paul Ryan quietly arrived in Dallas today and met with Dallas police officers. Interim Chief David Pughes tweeted a photo with the man himself offering appreciation to the city’s officers. A Dallas police spokesman didn’t say much—Ryan “just came to visit” to “thank us for our service.” The speaker left by lunch.

Ryan offered loads of support for Dallas officers after the July ambush that left five dead and another nine wounded. He’s been fundraising in D.C. in recent weeks by targeting physicians and dentists as he leads the effort to kill the Affordable Care Act. And yesterday, he was meeting with Republican lawmakers in Corpus Christi. I’ve got a call in to Ryan’s press folks, so we’ll see if we can get more information about the visit. But here’s that photo:

UPDATE: A Ryan spokesman said he’d like the Speaker’s response to “stand by itself.”
