Poll: Trump Voters OK with a Private Email Server
A majority of Trump supporters polled believe that President Trump should have access to a personal email server if he wants.
The Hill reports:
According to a new poll by Public Policy Polling, supporters of President Donald Trump say he should be allowed to have a private email server.
“Forty-two percent of Trump voters think he should be allowed to have a private email server to just 39 percent who think he shouldn’t be allowed to,” according to a write-up of the poll.
The results are surprising, considering Trump’s campaign included calling out Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for using a private email server while she was Secretary of State.
According to another new report, at least four senior officials in President Trump’s White House have active accounts on a private Republican National Committee (RNC) email system.
Counselor Kellyanne Conway, White House press secretary Sean Spicer, chief strategist and senior counselor Stephen Bannon and senior adviser Jared Kushner — Trump’s son-in-law — all have rnchq.org email accounts, Newsweek reported Wednesday.
Earlier this week, Trump called to end any further investigations of Clinton’s email arrangement.
“I just don’t know. I mean, I hope so. From my standpoint we want to move on to the future, so I hope so. I don’t know what the status of that is. I know it is a lot of very serious stuff, but I certainly hope so,” Trump said in the Oval Office.
