Paul Ryan: Suspend All Classified Briefings With Hillary Clinton

After FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has released a statement condemning Hillary Clinton for "mishandling" classified information on her private server. Ryan also called for the Director of National Intelligence to cease classified briefings with Clinton until this matter is settled.

"Yet again, Hillary Clinton has nobody but herself to blame. She was entrusted with some of our nation’s most important secrets, and she betrayed that trust by carelessly mishandling highly classified information. This decision, long overdue, is the result of her reckless use of a private email server, and her refusal to be forthcoming with federal investigators. I renew my call for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings for Secretary Clinton until this matter is fully resolved."

Ouch.
