Lindsey Graham Claims He Has Never Sent an Email

(Hasani Gittens)  He’s been a U.S. senator for 12 years, and was a Congressman for eight more before that, but South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham says he has never sent an email.

In a discussion on NBC’s Meet the Press about the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a home-based email server while she was secretary of state, moderate Chuck Todd asked Graham, “Do you have a private e-mail address?”

Graham’s surprising answer: “I don’t email. No, you can have every email I’ve ever sent. I’ve never sent one.”

As Todd chuckled at the incredible notion that someone in 2015 could have never sent an email, Graham said, “I don’t know what that makes me, but…” then got back to speaking about Clinton, continuing, “but really, this is big in this regard. Did she communicate on behalf of The Clinton Foundation as Secretary of State?”

Fellow Republican Sen. John McCain made a similarly Luddite statement to Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC on Thursday.
