When FBI Director James Comey announced on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton would not be charged for her use of a personal email server, she thought she was in the clear. Unfortunately for her, however, she turned out to be dead wrong.
According to Conservative Tribune, House Speaker Paul Ryan formally requested on Thursday morning that Clinton be denied classified information briefings, which are given to both presidential nominees, because the FBI labeled her as “careless.” The Hill reported that Ryan made this request in a letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in which he asked that she not be given the briefings at all. He said that if the CIA does give her the briefings, Clapper should then explain why this is a good idea.
“As a former vice presidential nominee, I am keenly aware that Secretary Clinton is set to begin receiving classified intelligence briefings after the Democratic National Convention,” Ryan wrote. “Given the FBI’s findings, denying Secretary Clinton access to classified information certainly constitutes appropriate sanctions.”
The bad news for Clinton didn’t end there on Thursday. It has also just been revealed that a bill had been introduced in the Senate to strip Clinton of her security clearance as a punishment for her crimes. The bill was introduced by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn and Sen. Cory Gardner, and it explained that it was appropriate given how Clinton had handled classified material in the past.
“When individuals mishandle our country’s most sensitive information they jeopardize national security and shouldn’t be trusted with such an important responsibility,” Cornyn explained in a statement.
“If the FBI won’t recommend action based on its findings, Congress will. At the very least, Secretary Clinton should not have access to classified information and our bill makes sure of it,” Gardner added in a separate statement.
