Speaker Ryan requests Hillary Clinton’s access to confidential information be withheld




WASHINGTON – U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan sent a letter Thursday to James Clapper, director of National Intelligence, requesting that he "refrain from providing any confidential information to Hillary Clinton for the duration of her candidacy" because of her careless activity with an unauthorized email server.

After FBI Director Jim Comey's assessment, Ryan released the following statement: 

While I respect the professionals at the FBI, this announcement defies explanation. No one should be above the law. Declining to prosecute Secretary Hillary Clinton for recklessly mishandling and transmitting national security information will set a terrible precedent. The findings of this investigation make clear that Secretary Clinton misled the American people when she was confronted with her criminal actions. The American people will reject this troubling pattern of dishonesty and poor judgment.
