    Did Jeb Bush Lie about turning over all of his work-related emails?

    Jeb Bush used his private e-mail account as Florida governor to discuss security and military issues such as troop deployments to the Middle East and the protection of nuclear plants, according to a review of publicly released records.
    The e-mails include two series of exchanges involving details of Florida National Guard troop deployments after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the review by The Washington Post found.
    Aides to Bush said Saturday that none of the e-mails contained sensitive or classified information, and that many of the events mentioned in them were documented in press accounts, either contemporaneously or later. But security experts say private e-mail systems such as the one used by Bush are more vulnerable to hackers, and that details such as troop movements could be exploited by enemies.

    Jeb Bush stated he turned over all his emails - AFTER he deleted those he didn't want anyone to see claiming they were personal and had nothing to do with government business - the same answer as Hillary Clinton.

    I don't know whether Florida State Law requires the same handing-over process as what is required of Hillary. If so, then it would be indeed pretty much the same story. Do you know if it is?

    SoS private Email accounts while under investigation by a oversight committee and Jeb Bush's situation are ofcourse quite different.

    But if he broke the law then he should have to face the consequences

    I'm not a fan of either candidate.

    As I've stated before, if he didn't break a law, he should have. This practice is unacceptable and needs to be illegal.

    Otherwise, how can we vote in your poll? I mean, without an investigation concluding that he lied, how can we know that he did. If you'd like to ask me if I think he lied, I could answer that. I didn't vote.

    No, Florida law does not, so it is a question of truthfulness more than criminality. However, it could seriously violate federal law if he was released confidential or national security secrets in unsecure ways.

    A Democrat gets caught red handed, and it's all "....but look at these REPUBLICANS!"

    I mean really...

    At this point...

    What does it even matter?

    Is there a problem with making sure that government officials in both parties are issued .gov accounts, required to conduct all official business on them, and prosecuted when they fail? Does everything have to be partisan?
