Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was on Meet the Press this morning. When the topic got to Hillary Clinton’s private email server, Graham offered,
“I don’t email. No, you can have every email I’ve ever sent. I’ve never sent one.”
Seriously? I’ve been sending email for nearly 30 years. How is it possible to live in the 21st Century without email?
More importantly, what does this say about what Senator Graham doesn’t understand about modern life?
Back when I worked at WTNH all my email was sent through a server I controlled. No nefarious purpose. It was just more convenient. They had all my incoming mail, but nothing I sent (unless it came back in a reply) was in their possession.
I suspect that’s why Secretary Clinton did it, convenience. It allowed me to consolidate all my email accounts in one place.
But Hillary Clinton wasn’t a TV meteorologist. She had more of an obligation to officially archive her correspondence, whether it was a law/rule or not.
As sins go, hers is pretty minor.
Lindsey Graham’s admission isn’t a sin at all. But it’s definitely a head scratcher.
