Senator Lindsey Graham says he has never sent an email
Hillary Clinton is at the center of a controversy involving her state department emails. Last week, it was reported that she used a private email address to conduct official government business during her time as secretary of state.
Now, Senator Lindsey Graham is among the lawmakers questioning the move.
While discussing the revelation on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Graham offered to turn over everything he’s ever sent. Which he admits would be very little.
“I don’t e-mail — no, you can have every email I’ve ever sent. I’ve never sent one,” said Graham, (R) of South Carolina. “I don’t know what that makes me, but — really, this is big in this regard. Did she communicate on behalf of Clinton Foundation as Secretary of State? Did she call the terrorist attack in Benghazi a terrorist attack in real time? I want to know. And the one thing I’ll never agree to is let the State Department tell us what emails we should receive or let her and her team tell us. Some independent group should do that.”
Critics say the unusual decision to use a private email address for official communications gave Clinton extraordinary control over what later became public record and what remained private.
Last week, Clinton tweeted that she had asked the state department to release her emails.
