Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters on Wednesday that Department of National Intelligence (DNI) director James Clapper should deny Hillary Clinton top secret intelligence briefings following the FBI report of her extreme negligence with security documents.
Paul Ryan: Look, I was on the ticket in 2012 and after the convention you get a full deep classified information as part of transition as part of being a nominee. I think the DNI Clapper should deny Hillary Clinton access to classified information during this campaign given how she so recklessly handled classified information.

It was nice to see Paul Ryan was able to speak with reporters without trashing Trump.
The Washington Times reported:
The government should deny Hillary Clinton the regular national security briefings presidential nominees generally receive, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday night.
Mr. Ryan also said the House will hold hearings and demand that FBI Director James B. Comey testify about why, after laying out a case against Mrs. Clinton’s secret email server, he refused to recommend charges against her.
“I think the DNI, the director of national intelligence, should block her access to classified information,” Mr. Ryan said on Fox News.
Earlier Tuesday, Mr. Comey announced the findings of the FBI’s yearlong investigation, saying Mrs. Clinton’s secret email account could well have been hacked by enemy agents. He said she did, in fact, send and receive information that was classified at the time she handled it.
