Pence says his private email use was not the same as Clinton's

Source: Reuters



03 MAR 2017 AT 16:27 ET

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Friday said there was “no comparison whatsoever” between his use of a private email account for state business while he was governor of Indiana and the email woes of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time in government became a major point of criticism against her as the Democratic nominee during the 2016 presidential election by Pence, the running mate of President Donald Trump, and others involved in the Republican campaign.

“There’s no comparison whatsoever between Hillary Clinton’s practice, having a private server that was handling classified information, destroying emails that were requested by the Congress and by officials,” Pence told reporters on the sidelines of an event in Wisconsin.

Pence’s use of an AOL email account was first reported by the Indianapolis Star on Thursday. The newspaper said Pence used the account at times to discuss sensitive matters and homeland security issues. The account was hacked last summer, the newspaper reported.

12. Exactly. It is frightening that the GOP sold their lies so well and are celebrating their ability

to write the history books in such a dishonest manner.

This was a dangerous win for the Republicans for reasons that go well beyond Donald Trump.

3. Of course they were different...any dummy can tell...



...Hillary's email server was used by a Democrat and Pence's email server was used by a Republican. See how easy that was to understand.

Sheesh - these guys are such asshats.

10. It is sad the GOP feels entitled to permanently repeat the blatant lie that she destroyed emails

that had been requested by Congress or other officials.

We have entered a fact-resistant world. It is so dangerous that the GOP won this last election on the terms that they won on. And that danger goes well beyond Donald Trump and all his issues.

27. ITA. And it is not just disgusting...it is dangerous.

When the GOP establishes a victory based on fact-resistance it encourages more and deeper fact-resistance in the future.

When the GOP stole the 2000 election it made it made it easier to believe that Obama had a fake birth certificate. And so on and so on.

Maybe that was due to the private server, among other things?

18. I thought her "classified" emails were not on her server. That would be a SIPRNet

server. Didn't she clarify that near the end of the campaign? You can't forward, attach reply etc if it was really a classified email. They are ONLY sent on the SIPRNet, not what she had going. The little (c) in the title, etc....is bullshit. That is not how she should have received them.

Any time you work for an employer, you should be communicating through your employers server, not AOL, yahoo, gmail....etc. Whether government or not. We are told NOT to do that where I work, can't imagine the state agencies have that different protocol where "security" is concerned. If the state of IN allows this to happen, then they should be hung out to dry.

25. The difference

is that Hillary was using her email to correspond with colleagues, while Pence was using his to send pictures of dead girls and naked boys to his buddies. Bigly difference, bigly!

i hate that particular term from a commercial but that
is how the trump lovers' mind works. auto-magically.

they will auto-magically forget that any conservative ever
yelled and screamed about Hilary and her email server.
