(Newser) – President Obama had never heard of Hillary Clinton using a non-government-issued email, and Lindsey Graham has apparently never heard of email. As Politico reports, when asked by Chuck Todd this morning as to whether he had a personal email account, the South Carolina Republican with the mystifying Twitter handle and presidential ambitions responded that he does not. "I don’t email. You can have every email I’ve ever sent. I’ve never sent one." He added, per CNN, "I don't know what that makes me."

More seriously, he wants Clinton's emails vetted by an independent group, saying the State Department shouldn't get to decide which of her communications the public sees. "This is big in this regard: Did she communicate on behalf of the Clinton Foundation as secretary of state? Did she call the terrorist attack in Benghazi a terrorist attack?" Graham said. "I want to know." (Graham had to walk back a joke about Nancy Pelosi this week.)
