In Wednesday’s episode of "The Michael Knowles Show," Michael explains how Ivanka’s email issue does not compare to Hillary’s.

"Ivanka’s emails! Oh no! They’ve got us now," he joked. "You know, the Democrats. They get so excited on every little stupid issue. They think 'Oh we got you now!' They wear those little shirts that say It’s Mueller time! Cool. Cool guy. Yeah. Great. This is the end of the Trump presidency!"

"How many times have they said this is the end of the Trump presidency?" he continued. "For about 4 times a day since November 9th, 2016. Now they’re saying that Ivanka Trump, who’s not only Trump’s daughter, but also a staffer in the White House, is guilty of the same thing that Hillary Clinton is guilty of because she used her personal email account to carry on some government business."

After playing a clip of Ivanka Trump saying that there was no "equivalence," Knowles broke down how the two circumstances are different.

"There is no comparison. There actually is not equivalency. I think the left genuinely thinks there is, because they never understood the Hillary Clinton scandal in the first place," he said. Knowles pointed out that former Secretaries of State Colin Powell and John Kerry both used private accounts to conduct business, but it was the actions of the Clinton team afterwards that were so egregious.

"If Hillary were using a Gmail account, that wouldn’t be the problem," he said. "It’s that she was using a private email server. When she was appointed Secretary of State, she set up a private email server in her home that would store all of those emails. Why would she go through the trouble of doing that? It was a completely unsecured server. The emails would have been much safer on government servers."

Knowles offered an explanation: "She did it to avoid public disclosure laws. She did it avoid record keeping laws. She did it to burn the records of whatever business dealings she was doing while she was Secretary of State."

Ivanka’s emails! Oh no! They’ve got us now.

You know, the Democrats. They get so excited on every little stupid issue. They think ‘Oh we got you now!” They wear those little shirts that say It’s Mueller time! Cool. Cool guy. Yeah. Great.

This is the end of the Trump presidency!

How many times have they said this is the end of the Trump presidency? For about 4 times a day since November 9th, 2016.

Now they’re saying that Ivanka Trump, who’s not only Trump’s daughter, but also a staffer in the White House, is guilty of the same thing that Hillary Clinton is guilty of because she used her personal email account to carry on some government business.

There is no comparison. There actually is not equivalency. I think the left genuinely thinks there is, because they never understood the Hillary Clinton scandal in the first place.

The Hillary Clinton scandal is not that she used her personal email account sometimes to send emails. Virtually everybody does that in the government. Donald Trump uses his cell phone sometimes when he shouldn’t, and he carries it on him and people are worried that people an listen in. Colin Powell did this. He used a private email account. John Kerry used a private email account, but we didn’t go after all those guys in the way that we went after Hillary Clinton. Why?

Because the email account itself is not the problem. If Hillary were using a Gmail account, that wouldn’t be the problem. The problem is not that Hillary was using a private account. It’s that she was using a private email server. When she was appointed Secretary of State, she set up a private email server in her home that would store all of those emails.

Why would she go through the trouble of doing that? It was a completely unsecured server. The emails would have been much safer on government servers.

She did it to avoid public disclosure laws. She did it avoid record keeping laws. She did it to burn the records of whatever business dealings she was doing while she was Secretary of State.

And what business dealings was she doing? Well we know of a few of them. We know that the Saudi Regime gave her at least 25 million dollars when she was Secretary of State. That is a bribe. That is pay for play. They gave money to that foundation. Why did they do it? Because the Saudi Royal family is so charitable? Out of the goodness of their heart? Saudi Arabia, the greatest exporter of radical Islamic terrorism in the world? Saudi Arabia, the royal family that just chopped up that Islamist guy in Turkey, that cut him up while he was alive? I don’t think that they’re the sweetest most charitable people in the world. They were playing to play. They were bribing the Secretary of state.

So what else was going on?

We know that Hillary Clinton was involved in approving the sale of uranium to Russian interests while she was Secretary of State, while her slush fund, her foundation was receiving a ton of money from those very interests.

What else? What else was she doing? We don’t know, because not only did she avoid record keeping laws, federal record laws, she burned the server. Bleached it. She completely wiped it so that nobody could get in there and look at those emails.

By the way, you can never permanently delete files.
