Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos used four personal email addresses for work-related business and violated government regulations regarding preservation of those documents. DeVos’ spokesperson then blasted the media for reporting the news, as The Hill reports.

“We found a limited number (less than 100) sent or received between January 20, 2017, and April 10, 2018,” the Education Dept.’s Inspector General charges. “Most messages occurred during the first 6 months of 2017 and were from a single writer who was offering advice on potential candidates for Department positions.

The emails “were not always being properly preserved,” to OIG reported. “We did not identify any instances where the secretary forwarded emails from her personal accounts to her department email accounts,” as she should have.

Meanwhile, Education Dept. spokesperson Liz Hill said, “I understand that ‘DeVos + Personal Email’ gets clicks, and attacked “media coverage of the IG report on personal email is the definition of click bait,” which is false.

President Donald Trump's burgeoning scandal with Ukraine has one columnist wondering when Republicans will put country before party.

"I was going to write today about how House Democrats are handling the impeachment question. But the truth is, it’s largely irrelevant. As long as Republicans are united in opposition, President Donald Trump will stay in office," Bloomberg Opinion columnist Jonathan Bernstein wrote. "That’s not to say that there aren’t bad and worse choices for Democrats, but they’re not the ones who have the real decision to make."
