Trump encouraged his supporters at his vile rallies to chant “lock her up” in reference to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server as Secretary of State. Will he encourage the same response for Mike Pence who performed the same exact actions as the Governor of Indiana?
The ‘IndyStar’ discovered e-mails sensitive to serious state and federal matters, including matters of national security. “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.”
Okay, we all know that nothing will happen. Republican hypocrites will protect their own for confirmed security violations and continue to vilify Hillary and other Democrats.
Pence’s office released a statement intended to defend the former governor, but it fails to ‘hold water.’
“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.”
The problem is that this was a casual act without regard for the seriousness of many of these e-mails.
When Pence deserted Indiana, his approval rating was too low to allow him reelection as the state’s governor. His homophobia was costing the state millions of dollars in revenue. He failed his state and this is the primary reason he ‘jumped’ at the chance to be Trump’s running mate.
Both Trump and Pence are opportunists. They have no interest in the future of the United States. They are the worst duo in American history.
Trump must be removed from office, but Pence cannot be allowed to replace him.
