Speaker Ryan Formally Requests That Hillary Clinton Be Denied Classified Briefings During Campaign

PJ Media   "Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has sent a letter to Director of National Intelligence  James Clapper requesting Hillary Clinton be denied classified information and briefings she would receive as the Democratic nominee for president, ABC News is reporting.

" 'There is no legal requirement for your to provide Secretary Clinton with classified information, and it would send the wrong signal to all those charged with safeguarding our nation's secrets if you choose to provide her access to this information despite the FBI's findings," Ryan wrote in a letter to Clapper obtained by ABC News. "I firmly believe this is necessary to reassure the public that our nation's secrets are secure.' "

While I respect the professionals at the FBI, this announcement defies explanation. No one should be above the law.
