Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said on Tuesday that the FBI’s recommendation that no charges be pursued against Hillary Clinton is a sign that “the Clintons live above the law.”

Appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” Ryan said that FBI director James Comey “basically spent a number of minutes walking through how she not only mishandled classified information, how she was grossly negligent, it seemed to me as he was going through his case that he was going to recommend prosecution, only then he recommended against prosecution.” (RELATED: FBI Recommends ‘NO CHARGES’ For Hillary Clinton [VIDEO])

“People have been convicted for far less. And the point is, yes, this certainly does underscore the belief the Clintons live above the law. And this is one of the reasons why people are so dissatisfied, so upset about government. They think that people live by a different set of rules, and the Clintons, they take the candle on this one.” (RELATED: 2015: DOJ Prosecutes A Naval Reservist For Mishandling Classified Info WITHOUT MALICIOUS INTENT)

“Number one, the FBI should give us all of their findings. They should release all of their findings of this information. She’s actually you know, competing for commander-in-chief here. So I think there’s a whole accounting that needs to happen.” (RELATED” Ryan: Not Charging Hillary Sets ‘Terrible Precedent’)


“Number two, we’re going to have hearings,” Ryan said. “Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight Committee is going to be calling up James Comey to ask questions. He didn’t answer any questions with the press. And our judiciary committee has sent a number of questions. There are a lot of unanswered questions here.”

“Do you think he caved to political pressure?” host Megyn Kelly asked. (RELATED: Krauthammer: Comey Didn’t Want To Be The ‘Fulcrum Of History’)

“I don’t know the answer to that question,” Ryan said. “I’ll take him at his word, but what I don’t really understand is after he lists this laundry list of violations, he comes to that conclusion.”

Later Ryan argued that Comey “shredded the things that she had been saying in her own defense all year long about her case.”

According to Ryan, Clinton is disqualified to be president, adding that the Director of National Intelligence should block her access to classified intelligence.
