Ryan: FBI Acting Like ‘Political Operators’ for Clinton
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) slammed the FBI on Tuesday for acting like “political operators” by releasing Hillary Clinton’s FBI report the Friday before Labor Day weekend.
“It’s like the most buried time you could put out stories. I’m surprised. I mean, I can’t believe they would do what is such a patently political move. It makes them look like political operators versus law enforcement officers,” Ryan told Wisconsin’s WRNJ radio station Tuesday morning, according to the Hill.
“The fact that they chose the Friday before Labor Day to put all this out there mystifies me as to why they thought that was a smart thing to do,” Ryan added.
The 58-page report released Friday by the FBI revolved around the bureau’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server and contained notes from its three-hour interview with the Democratic presidential nominee. The documents show Clinton used the phrase does not “recall” or “remember” at least 39 times during her FBI interview. – READ MORE
