“Mike Pence defended his use of a personal email account to conduct state business while he was Indiana’s governor, saying “there’s no comparison” between his situation and the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server that rocked the 2016 presidential campaign.”
See Mike Pence on personal email use: ‘No comparison’ to ClintonObviously, Pence lacks CPU-power behind his thick skull if he thinks there’s no comparison with Clinton’s e-mail situation. Always helpful as I am I will provide a list of comparables below:
- Both not only used private e-mail addresses but used the same account for personal/official messages.
- Both had complicity in the deed by others who should have known better, like correspondents in government.
- Both deleted private e-mails upon leaving office, sorted out by their lawyers, no less…
- Both were careless about security although Clinton’s plan to keep the server in the basement was a little more secure than allowing AOL to browse the mail… and Pence was hacked…
On balance, I’d say that Hillary did the better job. At least she took a hammer to old devices, wiped drives and the like while Pence was hacked and real criminals held stuff for ransom. They could even have some goodies socked away to sell to the highest bidder when Trump and Pence put the screws to some ne’erdowells. Yes, Pence, what happens when Putin buys the e-mails between you and your mistresses? Off-shore banker? Hit-man you hired a while back? Are you going to bend over backwards for Putin? Oh, you and Trump are doing that already, I see.
