#WikiLeaks Showed April Ryan More Than ‘Just a Reporter’ @OfficialCBC Congressional Black Caucus

April Ryan, White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, protested that she’s an old-fashioned reporter Thursday after President Donald Trump suggested that she could set up a meeting between himself and the Congressional Black Caucus.

“No, no, no,” she said during the president’s news conference. “I’m just a reporter.”

“I’m from the old school where we just report. I’m not supposed to be the news.”

Interviewed later by CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, Ryan doubled down on the narrative.

“I’m from the old school where we just report,” she said. “I’m not supposed to be the news.”

And she tweeted: “I am a journalist not a convener! But thank you for answering my questions.”

The veteran Washington journalist, however, appeared to a bit more than a chronicler of current events during last year’s presidential campaign. Emails pilfered from Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta’s email account and published in the fall by WikiLeaks suggest a rather chummy relationship between Ryan and the Clinton camp.

At one point, she even suggested a meeting with members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

“FYI I also just talked with Marcia Fudge and Sheila Jackson Lee,” she wrote on April 18, 2015, referring to representatives from Ohio and Texas, respectively. “Also, Lets make the black reporters meeting happen asap.”
