Goodlatte’s softer side

It turns out that for all of Congressman Goodlatte’s tough words and actions when it comes to alleged misdeeds of the Obama administration, he has a generous and forgiving side too– at least when it comes to the daughter of a Republican president.

Politico reports:

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), said on Monday that it was “awfully tough” for government officials such as Ivanka Trump to comply with agency standards for secure communications when sending emails.

“When things like this come up, it’s important people understand, they need to make sure they’re doing what they can,” Goodlatte said during an interview on CNN.

“And it’s awfully tough, as everyone knows, when you’re sending emails about a lot of different things to make sure that you’re doing it according to the rules in the White House or wherever you’re doing it,” he added.

The Washington Post reported last week that Ivanka Trump used a personal email account to send hundreds of emails about government business.

  1. Mr. double standard, indeed. Never showing courage and hiding in closed sessions is always his preference. It is too embarrassing when his sessions are public.
