Vice President Mike Pence said Friday there's "no comparison whatsoever" between his use of a private email account while governor of Indiana and Hillary Clinton's private server during her time as Secretary of State.
Pence used a private AOL email account to conduct some state business as governor, his spokesman confirmed to NBC News Thursday night.
"There's no comparison whatsoever between Hillary Clinton's practice — a private server, mishandling classified information, destroying emails when they were requested by the Congress and by officials," the vice president told reporters during a surprise stop at an Irish pub in Janesville, Wisconsin
Indiana law allows public officials to use personal email, but requires that all records regarding state business be retained and available for public information requests.
Pence Press Secretary Marc Lotter said the practice was "similar to previous governors" and added that the communications were being reviewed by outside counsel hired by Pence at the end of his term, transferred and properly archived by the state.
