Palin: Clinton's Use Of Personal Email Unethical

Former governor Sarah Palin believes that Hillary Clinton should face the same types of trials she did over her private email account. In an op-ed for Fox News, Palin writes:

"It’s appropriate and proper for a politician to use private email for personal and campaign business. This is what I did as governor of Alaska in order to be in compliance with the law, which requires that personal or campaign business not be conducted using public resources such as a government email account. There is a firm line separating the two.

However, that’s not what we see with this Clinton email scandal. As Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary Clinton used private email accounts on a privately maintained server 100 percent of the time for 100 percent government business. That’s unethical, no doubt illegal, and flies in the face of all claims of transparency. Hillary Clinton and her staff weren’t trying to be in compliance with the law; they were skirting it altogether."

Palin does have an insider view of how to work with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. After her 2008 vice presidential campaign, the state of Alaska was overwhelmed with FOIA requests to review every single email she wrote while she was governor. Investigator's and Alaska's attorney general's office were given full access to her state and private emails. Even an independent third party reviewed every email. In contrast, Secretary Clinton has not handed over her private email server to an independent party for review. Even if she does, Palin believes it will probably be too late as someone may have already deleted any trace of incriminating evidence.
