House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday rejected the FBI’s conclusion that Hillary Clinton was “careless” in how she handled sensitive material while she was secretary of state, and instead said Clinton’s actions were the result of political calculation.
“[H]er actions do not seem careless at all,” Ryan wrote in a Washington Post op-ed published Wednesday, referring to FBI Director James Comey remark last week that Clinton was “extremely careless” while she was in the government. “In fact, Clinton’s actions seem quite careful — careful to place her own interests before our national security.”
Ryan said Clinton’s deliberate effort to set up a network of private servers to host her emails was “quite an undertaking.”
“Transmitting tens of thousands of government emails does not amount to one or two thoughtless mistakes but a calculated series of choices made over the course of several years,” he said.
