    What's the law in his state ?
    That would look to be what settles this.
    HRC is governed by federal law ergo the two are not the same.

    Federal law supersedes state law, doesn't it?

    You may have a valid point but we have to see how this plays out, and I personally need more info about this to form an opinion.

    Right now, and I could change my mind on this, your comparison may be apples and oranges.

    You are of course comparing Hillary and Mike Pence with their emails...but the public wouldn't be clamoring for Hillary's emails if she would have properly used the correct legal email procedure. The problem with Hillary, and she admitted she made a mistake, was since she made the "mistake", THEN because of that, we wanted to know what the Russians, Chinese, and everyone else knew from her hacked emails.

    Pence to my knowledge so far, used the correct legal email procedures, so there should be no public interest in his emails.

    Not in this case. the law for feds is to insure that there is a full and complete record for the purpose of transparency.

    This does not apply to the states. they are, of course, free to enact their own laws so that's what I was wondering.

    All this talk about laws.... Dont get me wrong, I'm a strong supporter of laws, but this case also is about moral. A shame that moral seems to have no place in politics nowadays.

    That argument usually is often used as an excuse. I continue to have my own high standards :)

    Probably not. However, you certainly proved they did not matter this time. In fact, those who are supposed to be the guardians of morals, the Evangelical leaders, proved it mattered not. Do you think maybe, just maybe, that is why we are in the mess we are in?

    Not one single Trump elector will switch their vote to Hillary Clinton.
