With all of the intense crying by Republicans over the use of a private email address by Hillary Clinton, you would think this is something a Republican would never do, right? Clearly it is an offense of the highest magnitude.
Well that isn’t quite the case. For one example, Jason Chaffetz R-Utah, head of the House’s Government Oversight committee, uses a Gmail account. I am not accusing Gmail of having poor security, or implying it is a bad service, but it is a private email account. This is literally the exact same thing they are complaining about with Hillary, implying she broke some law. What is Jason Chaffetz hiding and when will we find the truth? When will Republicans hold a hearing about his email?
Trey Gowdy has his own personal email address that he uses for campaign contact email as well, ‘[email protected]’ What secrets is Gowdy hiding and why is he not disclosing this email publicly? Perhaps we should all send him an email and ask. Yes the blue link is clickable to send email, hint hint.
It is not unusual for these things to exist for a public servant. However, one would think they would do something about these accounts when Hillary demonstrated how private email = treason. Am I right folks?
Gowdy’s office has already been contacted by Correct The Record’s David Brock, when he sent a letter to Chairman Gowdy, asking how we can access his private emails. He went on to point out that since Chairman Gowdy insists Hillary Clinton’s private email be surrendered to public record, that the American people also need equal access to Chairman Gowdy’s private email archives.
Dear Chairman Gowdy:
I noted with interest your public demand that Secretary Clinton turn over her personal email server, presumably so that the committee can access some 30,000 Clinton emails deemed to be strictly private and beyond the reach of the government.
This Orwellian demand has no basis in law or precedent. Every government employee decides for themselves what email is work-related and what is strictly private. There is no reason to hold Secretary Clinton to a different standard— except partisan politics.
But since you insist that Clinton’s private email be accessed, I’m writing today to ask you and your staff to abide by the same standard you seek to hold the Secretary to by releasing your own work-related and private email and that of your staff to the public.
While I realize that Congress regularly exempts itself from laws that apply to the executive branch, I believe this action is necessary to ensure public confidence in the fairness and impartiality of your investigation.
Thank you for your consideration.
It is concerning, yet somehow typical and expected, that Republicans are demanding via pitchforks and torches, full access to Hillary’s private email while they all have private email accounts of their own they refuse to talk about. Will they ever acknowledge these accounts, let alone release the contents of them? No, they won’t. Will they keep screaming about Hillary’s email? Of course they will.
