WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Wednesday that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton may have been given preferential treatment from the FBI in its investigation of her use of a private email server and should not receive classified information during her campaign.

"It looks like it to me," Ryan told reporters when asked if the former secretary of state received preferential treatment. The Federal Bureau of Investigation said on Tuesday it would not recommend charges regarding Clinton's email.
