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, moderator Chuck Todd asked Graham, “Do you have a private e-mail address?”
Graham’s answer: “I don’t email. No, you can have every email I've ever sent. I’ve never sent one.”

He added: “I don’t know what that makes me."
The South Carolina senator said that the email issue raises important questions about Clinton's communications. "Did she communicate on behalf of The Clinton Foundation as Secretary of State?" he asked.
Fellow Republican Sen. John McCain made a similar statement about his email practices to Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC on Thursday.
