Roll Call: Ryan Request Denied, Clinton to Get Intel Briefings

Speaker wanted officials to deny Clinton access to classified info during campaign

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper denied Speaker Paul D. Ryan's request that Hillary Clinton should not get national security briefings during the presidential campaign.

In a letter to Ryan, Clapper wrote that "I do not intend to withhold briefings from any officially nominated, eligible candidate."

That came after FBI Director James B. Comey testified last week that Clinton and top aides were "extremely careless" in handling classified information sent and received via her personal email server, but recommended that no criminal charges be filed.

Yes. She was careless. Having years ago worked with highly classified stuff I can note that many are careless with such stuff. As for Donald: I suggest that a guy who will not reveal his tax returns ought not be trusted with anything. Offshore banking? little or no taxes paid? Little to charity? who knows.
