"Regardless of the decision, the undisputed finding of the FBI's investigation is that Secretary Clinton put our nation's secrets at risk and in doing so compromised our national security," Ryan said in a statement, according to a Huffington Post reporter.

"She simply believes she's above the law and always plays by her own rules."

The Speaker said Americans shouldn't have to "endure four more years of their scandal and baggage," calling it a pattern with the Clintons.

"Fortunately, the American people have the opportunity to ensure Secretary Clinton never gets her hands on classified information again," Ryan said.

FBI Director James Comey last month sent a letter to lawmakers telling them the bureau would be reviewing newly discovered emails "pertinent" to its investigation into Clinton's use of a private server while secretary of State.

His letter came after he announced in July the FBI would not recommend criminal charges over the Democratic nominee's use of a private server.

On Sunday, just two days before Election Day, Comey said in a new letter that the "FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation."

"During that process we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State," the letter said. 

"Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton."
