In the chaotic aftermath of the FBI’s announcement that it is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s server, moments ago House speaker Paul Ryan decided to once again get involved actively in the presidential race, and issued the following statement:
“Yet again, Hillary Clinton has nobody but herself to blame. She was entrusted with some of our nation’s most important secrets, and she betrayed that trust by carelessly mishandling highly classified information. This decision, long overdue, is the result of her reckless use of a private email server, and her refusal to be forthcoming with federal investigators. I renew my call for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings for Secretary Clinton until this matter is fully resolved.”

And Donald Trump wasted not time at all to chime in too, saying the FBI news shows the system may not be “rigged” and that the FBI probe is “bigger than watergate.”
