O'Reilly: 'Comey Downplayed the Negligence Issue and That Is Troubling'

Trump: Comey's Decision 'Surprising' After Everything Else He Said


House Speaker Paul Ryan weighed in on the FBI's decision not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton, saying that the Democratic candidate "lives above the law."

Ryan said that it sounded as if FBI Director James Comey was preparing to recommend prosecution against Clinton for mishandling classified information and being grossly negligent, only to recommend against it.

"People have been convicted for far less," Ryan said on The Kelly File. "This certainly does underscore the belief that 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."

Ryan said he didn't understand how Comey came to his conclusion after going through a "laundry list of violations" by Clinton.

The speaker called for the FBI to hand over all of its findings from the investigation, saying "there's a whole of accounting that needs to happen."

He also said the House oversight and judiciary committees would hold hearings and that Comey would be called to answer questions.

Additionally, Ryan said that the Director of National Intelligence should take special action to block Clinton's access to classified information unless she's elected president, "given how recklessly she handled this from the start."
