Vice President Mike Pence is under fire for criticizing Hilary Clinton’s practice of conducting business on her personal email server while she was Secretary of State. Yet, Pence used his private email address to conduct business as Indiana governor.
The Vice President cheered when the FBI’s decided to take a second look at Clinton’s emails from her server because “no one is above the law.”
Some say he’s a hypocrite.
“There’s no comparison whatsoever between Hillary Clinton’s practice — having a private server, mishandling classified information, destroying emails when they were requested by the Congress,” said Pence.
Pence used his AOL account to communicate with top advisers on sensitive topics like homeland security. Then his account was hacked.
The biggest difference is that Indiana law does not bar public officials from private email accounts but federal employees are discouraged from it because it makes it difficult to comply with public records laws.
Pence said he has directed his lawyers to review all of his private email communications to ensure that state-related messages are given over to and properly archived by the state government.
The process is still ongoing.
