Former half-term Alaska Governor and current Fox News contributor Sarah Palin recently compared questions about her emails, while governor, to the controversy swirling around Hillary Clinton who used a private email address while she was U.S. Secretary of State.
In an op-ed for FoxNews.com, Palin claimed that she only used a private email for personal communications and campaigning "in compliance with the law."
Palin said that Clinton's email use "unethical, no doubt illegal, and flies in the face of all claims of transparency."
"Hillary Clinton and her staff weren’t trying to be in compliance with the law; they were skirting it altogether," added Palin.
However, former prosecutor Jonna Spilbor and defense lawyer Arthur Aidala both said that Clinton had not broken any laws during an appearance last week on Fox News' "The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson," noted Mediaite.com.
Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell recently admitted that he also used a personal email during most of his time at the Bush administration.
The McClatchy-Tribune News Service reported in 2011 that almost a month of Palin's emails were missing when she was Alaska's governor.
The missing emails spanned Dec. 8, 2006 and Dec. 29, 2006, but the State of Alaska claimed there were no Palin emails during that time.
