There was so much hoopla surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, resulting in thousands of sensitive documents being compromised. President Trump even called for Hillary’s execution and inprisonment for treason because of email-gate.
Now, we are just learning that Vice President Mike Pence’s private email server has been hacked, and through that server, highly sensitive conversation about national security.
According to USA Today:
“Emails released to The Indianapolis Star in response to a public records request show Pence communicated via his personal AOL account with top advisers on topics ranging from security gates at the governor’s residence to the state’s response to terror attacks across the globe. In one email, Pence’s top state homeland security adviser relayed an update from the FBI regarding the arrests of several men on federal terror-related charges.”
Pence allegedly used the private AOL account while he was the governor of Indiana.
Pence’s team responded today, saying:
“Similar to previous governors, during his time as Governor of Indiana, Mike Pence maintained a state email account and a personal email account. As Governor, Mr. Pence fully complied with Indiana law regarding email use and retention. Government emails involving his state and personal accounts are being archived by the state consistent with Indiana law, and are being managed according to Indiana’s Access to Public Records Act.”
Under Indiana law, Pence didn’t do anything illegal. However, the sheer hypocrisy with which the Trump administration operates is almost enough to make your head explode.
If Hillary Clinton should be charged with treason, so shouldn’t the Vice President?
