House Speaker Paul Ryan appeared on “The Kelly File” Tuesday night to offer his thoughts on the FBI’s decision not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton.
Ryan feels Clinton believes she “lives above the law.” He feels that FBI director James Comey sounded like he was going to recommend prosecution, until he didn’t.
“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.”
Ryan thinks the FBI should turn over all of its findings in order for more transparency before the general election.
“She’s actually competing for commander-in-chief here,” Ryan said
The Speaker also questioned why Comey didn’t take questions from the press during Tuesday’s surprise news conference when he announced that he wouldn’t recommend charges.
“There are a lot of unanswered questions here, Megyn,” Ryan said.
Kelly then asked Ryan if he feels Comey “caved to political pressure.”
“I don’t know the answer to that question. I don’t know. I’ll take him at his word, but what I don’t really understand is, after he lists this laundry list of violations, he comes to that conclusion,” Ryan responded. “She clearly lives above the law.”
