Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) reacted to the announcement earlier in the day by FBI director James Comey that he would not be recommending criminal charges against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after his investigation of her use of a private email server while secretary of state.
Ryan told host Megyn Kelly that although Comey outlined what seemed to be wrongdoing, the ultimate decision not to seek criminal charges was par for the course when it comes to the Clintons and their ability to live above the law.
“People have been convicted for far less,” Ryan said. “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.”
