Furious GOP lashes out at FBI [View all]

Source: The Hill

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and other congressional Republicans are expressing anger and disbelief at the FBI’s decision that Hillary Clinton should not be prosecuted for her use of a private email account while at the State Department.

Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, was first out of the gate, declaring in a tweet that “the system is rigged” after FBI Director James Comey announced that he would not recommend charges against Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, even though his agency concluded her actions were “extremely careless.”

Ryan did not go quite as far as Trump, but he gave a green light for other Republicans to lash out at the FBI.

"While I respect the law enforcement professionals at the FBI, this announcement defies explanation,” Ryan said in a statement, warning it could put the nation’s secrets at future risk. “Declining to prosecute Secretary Clinton for recklessly mishandling and transmitting national security information will set a terrible precedent.”
