Sen. Lindsey Graham’s solution to email problems: Don’t send it

Sen. Lindsey Graham doesn’t use email.

Responding to the Hillary Clinton email controversy on Sunday, potential presidential candidate Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said he has never sent a single message using the technology.

“I don’t email,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “You can have every email I’ve ever sent. I’ve never sent one. I don’t know what that makes me.”

Graham said the controversy over Clinton’s use of private email as secretary of state raised questions about other Obama Cabinet officials’ practices.

Among that group, Graham appears to have had some company. FormerHomeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in 2013 that she didn’t use email either, calling it “inefficient” and a time suck.

Graham said he had confidence that Rep. Trey Gowdy, a fellow South Carolinia Repbulican leading a committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attack, “will get to the bottom” of the matter.

Clinton representatives have denied wrongdoing in her email practices, and she said she has asked the State Department to make her messages public.
