House Speaker Paul Ryan called for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings with Hillary Clinton until the investigation into her private email server is completely resolved. 

 

Ryan's statement comes after a U.S. official announced that newly discovered emails that have prompted a new FBI review of the Hillary Clinton email investigation came from a separate sexting probe of former congressman Anthony Weiner.

Federal authorities in New York and North Carolina are investigating online communications between Weiner and a 15-year-old girl.
 
The official said Friday that the emails referenced by FBI Director James Comey surfaced during that investigation. The official was familiar with the investigation but was not authorized to discuss the matter by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.
 
Comey told members of Congress on Friday that newly discovered emails believed to be related to the Clinton case were prompting a new review.
