Pence denies double standard in email scandal

Posted March 06, 2017

Vice President Pence took to Twitter on Saturday to demand an apology from the Associated Press, which published the email address of his wife, Karen, earlier this week.

The letter addressed to the AP's president and CEO, Gary Pruitt, said: 'The publication of Mrs Pence's active private email address to millions of your readers has subjected her to vitriolic and malicious emails and raised serious security concerns'.

Pence tweeted on Saturday: 'Last night the AP published my wife's private email address, violating her privacy and our security'.

"AP removed the email address from subsequent stories after learning Mrs. Pence still used the account".

"The AP stands by its story, which addresses important transparency issues", Easton said.

On Friday, Pence's attorneys turned over an additional 13 boxes of email correspondence to the newspaper.

The AP story which revealed Karen Pence's private email address discussed Mike Pence's use of a private AOL email account to conduct official business, which was revealed by theIndianapolis Star on Thursday.

'We have fully complied with all of Indiana's laws'.

A Pence official would not comment or characterize what is in the AOL emails that have not been released.

Sarah Sanders, the White House spokeswoman, doubled down on that defense, stressed to reporters on Air Force One that state and federal laws are different and claiming that is efforts to turn over the messages to be archived are "why anybody even knows about the account".

Clinton's use of private email was the subject of a federal investigation that determined she had exchanged classified information on a server based out of her NY home.

"If your son or my son handled classified information the way Hillary Clinton did, they'd be court-martialed", Pence said during the vice president debate with Tim Kaine.

What's more, Pence's AOL account was indeed hacked, although it was apparently a garden-variety breach rather than one that originated at a foreign intelligence agency. Pence, however, said that "there's no comparison whatsoever", when asked if he felt any sympathy for Hillary Clinton under his current circumstances, according to CNN.
