    Funny how I don't see any Republicans willing to spend seven million dollars putting Pence through a witch hunt.

    If there is dirt there, that is where Trump needs to start.

    Not to worry, James Comey said he is hot on the case!

    Yes, claiming executive privilege against a freedom of information request is precisely the same thing as using a private unsecure email server to communicate classified information.

    Vice President-elect Mike Pence is embroiled in a legal challenge stemming from his decision to withhold information from a public records request in a case local Democrats say raises the specter of the Indiana governor shielding all of his emails from public view.

    It's a bit ironic as Pence, along with running mate President-elect Donald Trump blasted their way into the White House in part by hammering away at Democrat Hillary Clinton's own email scandal.

    Pence's lawyers have argued, in part, that a state court decision protecting state lawmakers from releasing their own records should also apply to his office.


    The hysterical anti-Trump tone being used by the mainstream media even in their "news" articles since the election is amusing.

    So your response to your party's chosen leaders' act of hypocrisy is to put blame on the source?

    No, my response is that the two issues are not comparable at all (other than, perhaps, that they both involve email) as I said above.

    The post you quoted was merely an observation.

    Well I think they're also comparable in that Clinton's motivation was her obsession with privacy and to elude FOIA.

    Did Pence lie about it repeatedly and then use bleach bit and then destroy the servers?

    They don't have to be exactly the same; both involve charges of illegal or corrupt actions involving emails. Quibbling over the fact the the details aren't the same doesn't change the fact that conservatives would've buried Hillary for doing the same as Pence.

    They aren't parallel situations.

    === Quibbling over the fact the the details aren't the same doesn't change the fact that conservatives would've buried Hillary for doing the same as Pence. ===

    I'm quibbling over the fact that the situations are barely comparable, not that the "details aren't the same."

    The governor of Indiana doesn't have access to the same kind of classified information as does the Secretary of State.

    Surely we can agree that this salient different shows the lack of comparability of the situations.
