CNN Compared VP Mike Pence’s Email Revelation to Hillary Clinton, but Washington Post Disagrees

CNN’s article [1] continued to reference Hillary Clinton’s exclusive and illegal use of private e-mails to conduct State Department (i.e. federal government) business with Vice President Mike Pence’s use of a private e-mail account at AOL to conduct political business.

However, the Washington Post disagreed [2] with the liberal misinformation and pointed out that Pence used the AOL account for political purposes, which is legal in Indiana. Meaning, then-Governor Pence could not use the official e-mail account for the governor’s office to conduct political business, such as coordinating meetings and the like.

Clinton, on the other hand, exclusively used a private e-mail server to conduct government business and made it almost impossible to track, which goes around federal rules on e-mail use and conduct.
