Former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin shared two images via her Facebook page on Wednesday mocking Hillary Clinton’s excuse for using a personal email account and server to conduct government business as Secretary of State.
The first image is the infamous photo of Clinton wearing shades indoors and using her one Blackberry cellphone captioned,
“I opted for convenience… because I thought it would be easier to carry one device.”
The second image shows Palin with a personal phone in one hand, a baby in the other, and a work cellphone clearly labeled "State of Alaska" resting on the table in front of her, juggling the responsibilities of mother and career.
In an article published by Fox News on Monday, Palin criticized Hillary and her staff of "skirting" the law "altogether."
"As Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary Clinton used private email accounts on a privately maintained server 100 percent of the time for 100 percent government business," Palin wrote. "That’s 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."
She went on to say, "You’d expect more from the self-described 'most transparent administration in history.'"
"And you should demand more from anyone who wants to be president someday," Palin fired.
The Associated Press agrees with Palin, now suing the State Department to force the release of all of Hillary’s email correspondence and government documents from her four-year State tenure after multiple public records requests under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) went unanswered.
On Tuesday, breaking her nine-day silence on the scandal, the Hillary admitted that, in hindsight, it would have been better if she had used an official government email account.
"Again, looking back, it would've been better for me to use two separate phones and two email accounts,” Hillary said. “I thought using one device would be simpler, and obviously, it hasn't worked out that way."
