Mr Ryan, in a letter dated Wednesday, formally asked Clapper to "refrain from providing any classified information to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the duration of her candidacy for president" because of the FBI's findings.
After Wolf Blitzer spoke with Hillary Clinton about the frightful shootings this week, he also confronted her about the FBI's conclusion that she was reckless and careless in dealing with classified material.
Re "Clinton's bad judgment wasn't criminal" (Page 6A, July 6): As a registered "Independent" voter 25-plus years, this year's election is very disturbing considering the two choices we have.
A spokesman said the Clinton campaign was "pleased" with the outcome, adding, "As the secretary has long said, it was a mistake to use her personal email and would not do it again".
During an exchange with Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., Comey confirmed that the FBI's investigation found at least three emails with classified markings on Clinton's server, despite Clinton's assertion during the Benghazi hearing that she had neither sent nor received any items marked classified.
On Tuesday, Comey said that the FBI's investigation revealed that Clinton and her aides exercised "extremely careless" behavior when handling sensitive information.
FBI Director James Comey is under additional heat, this time from the Senate, over his decision not to recommend criminal prosecution of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Clinton and the State Department have said those privately managed emails did not contain any information that was classified at the time they were sent. However, she gave members of Congress the same various explanations that she gave the public, which have now been proven false by the IG audit and FBI investigators. Comey said today that the Federal Bureau of Investigation reached its conclusion without any coordination or review with the Justice Department or any other government agency.
"There is no effect, director - there is no outcome", Chaffetz said, demanding to know why Clinton and her aides do not appear to be paying a price over the long-running controversy.
Republicans tried to build an impression that Clinton repeatedly misled the American public over her motives and use of the private server system - something Republicans hope will highlight questions about her trustworthiness.
He explained that under relevant statutes, prosecutors would have to prove Clinton clearly knew she was breaking the law to win a case.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said he would refer Clinton's October 22 testimony to the FBI to investigate whether she lied to Congress. The agency, Comey said, did not investigate Clinton's testimony before the House Benghazi panel past year because Congress had not asked it to.
According to a search and seizure warrant issued in the case, Petraeus told Broadwell in an email that some of the material was in "boxes and I'll get them out when we unpack at the house in late July/Aug". There are two sets of law that govern our country: one for the masses, the other for the political elite.
"The Republicans are addicted to Benghazi", Cummings said.
The chairman asked Comey if Clinton had lied under oath during that hearing. The department had suspended its probe while it was waiting for the Justice Department to complete its criminal investigation.
Indeed, House Speaker Paul Ryan has called on the director of national intelligence to block Clinton's access to classified information while she is a presidential candidate.
