Paul Ryan Dismisses Latest FBI Findings: Clinton 'Plays By Her Own Rules'

Bill Clark

After FBI Director James Comey announced on Sunday that the review of newly discovered emails did not change the conclusions of its investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) still insisted that the FBI probe nonetheless revealed that Clinton was careless and played "by her own rules."

"Regardless of this decision, the undisputed finding of the FBI's investigation is that Secretary Clinton put our nation's secrets at risk and in doing so compromised our national security. She simply believes she's above the law and always plays by her own rules," Ryan said in a statement released shortly after Comey's letter was publicized. "This is a pattern with the Clintons, and the American people should not have to endure four more years of their scandal and baggage."

Ryan took the chance to renew his call to vote for Trump, with whom he has had a charged political relationship.

"Fortunately, the American people have the opportunity to ensure Secretary Clinton never gets her hands on classified information again," the speaker continued. "Let's bring the Clinton era to an end by voting for Donald Trump on Tuesday."
