None of Hillary's predecessors had a private 'internet server'

To The Daily Sun,

Mr. Vervaeke may want to know that there is a significant difference between an "internet server,"and an "internet account." None of Secretary Clinton's predecessors had a private internet server, only she did. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell had a simple, personal AOL account . . . just like millions of other Americans. He used that account only for his personal e-mail.

As to General Petraeus, none of his misdeeds in the handling of classified information were excused. He was charged with a crime. He didn't lie. He plead guilty to mishandling classified information and was fined $100,000 and put on two years probation.

Trump isn't draining the swamp, he's recharging it with cronies

To The Daily Sun,

There exists in our country a double standard that to my knowledge has never before been seen. All the hoopla about the supposed Clinton email scandal over just three emails with a small "c" somewhere in the body of the text and she becomes a crook and worthy to be locked up. Compare that to General Petraeus being touted as a candidate for Secretary of State.
Petraeus had an extramarital affair with Paula Broadwell, his biographer, and had shared reams of classified information with her. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges and was sentenced to two years of probation and forced to pay a $40,000 fine. Investigators also claimed Petraeus separately shared classified information with journalists. He actually needed to get approval from his probation officer to travel to New York to meet with Trump. Don the Con has no problem with that.
Don the Con nominates a racist homophobe who dislikes the KKK because they smoke pot to head the Justice Department, a retired pediatric surgeon to be HUD secretary, a man with zero experience running anything.
And did you see the ad for Trump Towers that offers the Secret Service presence as a selling point to potential tenants? No conflict there, right? How about his foreign financial interests? As Reince Priebus said of Hillary Clinton: "When that 3 a.m. phone call comes, Americans deserve to have a president on the line who is not compromised by foreign donations." Got that right. No one knows how far and deep Don the Con's ties to foreign nations are or who he is beholden to.
He claims to be Making America Great Again, but instead of draining the swamp, he is recharging it with fresh effluence with crony appointments that have no business leading our government.
Don the Con still has yet to be tested with a real world crisis, when he has to send our military in harms way and actually take responsibility for when things don't go the way he hoped. He is no where near the man or leader President Obama has been. He is making America look like a banana republic. The new leader of the free world is a fraud and the harm he can inflict may be irreparable.
