Mike Pence: Why Email Problem Isn’t Like Hillary Clinton’s

First things first: the uproar over Hillary Clinton’s emails has always been — and continues to be — one of the most absurd faux scandals in American politics. Of all of the reasons people conjured to vote against the former Secretary of State, her use of a dot-com over a dot-gov email address seemed to have its biggest sting in symbolism instead of substance.
