Paul Ryan wants to strip Hillary of access to classified info

Congress Republicans

You may not know this, but many people have expressed concern about Donald Trump (and his right-hand man, Paul Manfort, who works for tyrants and Russian strongmen) getting access to classified information. So for Ryan to suggest this is beyond absurd:

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Wednesday that Congress could step in and try to deny Hillary Clinton access to classified information during the presidential campaign, if the Obama administration doesn’t take that step itself.

Given that the FBI found Mrs. Clinton “careless” in handling top secret information, Mr. Ryan said Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should deny her the regular intelligence briefings a party’s presidential and vice presidential nominees get.

But he said if Mr. Clapper doesn’t do that, Congress could step in.

“We’re not going to forego any options,” he said — though he insisted the administration should do it “on its own.”

One thought on “Paul Ryan wants to strip Hillary of access to classified info

  1. Republicans are simply traitors, willing to sell out the country to the highest bidder. Power hungry fascists to the end. Anything to stack the deck, they might as well give the briefing to Putin himself and then turn around and want to withhold the same information from a proven patriot.
