If you’ve ever wanted to know about secret servers, all you have to do is pay attention to the news over the last few years. Democrats are all over President Trump for the storage of call transcripts on a secret server. The interesting thing is that he is not the first person to do this.
In an appearance in Texas, former national security advisor under Obama, Susan Rice, said that Trump utilized the server in an attempt to hide the call. Not long after she made these statements, she admitted that President Obama stored conversations on the server as well. In fact, it’s pretty much a standard practice in the White House.

It’s pretty interesting that we are talking about secret servers again. I mean, back in 2016, Hillary Clinton struggled to maintain a secure e-mail server. Many e-mail were lost, over 33,000 in fact, surprising soon after she was subpoenaed by Congress.
The DNC has struggled with servers as well. The DNC was hacked in 2016, and it was suggested that the Russian’s were responsible. We covered this in some detail during the podcast yesterday. These servers have really been challenging for Democrats to keep track of and keep secure.
Now, Democrats want to jump onto President Trump for using a secure server to store the messages, even after their leader Obama did the same thing. President Trump did not lose a conversation and the server wasn’t hacked. He has not struggled to maintain a server one bit.
The only struggle President Trump has, is that there are multiple people in the White House that have it out for him. Constantly, we are told of leaks coming from inside the administration. Then, the whistleblower issue comes out in which there is no evidence of the wrongdoing that Democrats claim.
Chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, has not done a great job in managing the staff in the White House. These types of leaks have been less common in previous administrations. While the release of the information was necessary, Trump will most likely need to make a change in this position to have someone start addressing the leaks. An article at CNN seems to indicate this may be the case as well.
In the end, these secret servers and leakers are giving a lot of issues to politicians. The difference is that Republicans are at least able to maintain the security of the servers they use. I expect President Trump will end up putting Mulvaney on notice or make a change in the position in the coming weeks as Democrats continue to chase impeachment.
