EXCERPT:

INSKEEP: "You, quite early, called for Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate, to withdraw from the race after a number of accusations were made against him."
RYAN: "That's because I believe those allegations are credible."
INSKEEP: "What is the difference between his case and the case of President Trump,who was also accused by a number of women and also denied it?"
RYAN: "I think the Roy Moore -- I don't know if -- I'm focused on Congress. Roy Moore is trying to come to Congress. My job here as Speaker of the House is to help make sure that Congress is an institution that we're proud of, and that's what I'm focused on. He's running for Congress, and I think the allegations against him were very, very credible."
INSKEEP: "Is there a difference between those two cases?"
RYAN: "I don't know the answer. I haven't spent my time reviewing the difference in these two cases."
