Pence's AOL Account Is Not the Same as Hillary's Emails - Here's Why
Democrats are seizing on a new report that Vice President Mike Pence used an AOL account to conduct state business while he was governor of Indiana.
The Indy Star report also says that the account, which is no longer in use, was hacked last summer.
The hashtag #PenceEmails is trending on social media this morning, with critics calling out Pence's own "Email-Gate."

Republicans- LOCK HER UP! Her private emails put everyone in jeopardy!
Republicans- Mike Pence is cool. Everyone uses AOL. Not his fault.

The critics argue Pence did the same thing as Hillary Clinton after he and President Trump strongly criticized her last year for using a private email server while she was secretary of state.
But as Ed Henry pointed out today, the two situations are not the same.
Henry pointed out that the scandal involving Clinton was over her mishandling of classified information on the server, which is not the case with Pence.
"He was not dealing with national security information like a secretary of state," said Henry.
He also emphasized that the issue with Clinton was that she went out of her way to set up her own server in her home to go around the government system.
