WASHINGTON, March 9 (UPI) -- Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday he is not worried about being told to release his emails because he has never sent one.

Graham, who is on the Senate Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law, made the confession to Chuck Todd on Meet the Press while discussing the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton's use of her private email for State Department business.

"Do you have a private email address?" Todd asked Graham.

"I don't email. No, you can have every email I've ever sent. I've never sent one," he responded.

Graham is not the only senator who has avoided the common form of communication.

"I'm afraid that if I was emailing, given my solid, always calm temperament, that I might email something that I might regret," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell. "You could send out an email that you would regret later on and would be maybe taken out of context."

Republicans have criticized the former secretary of state using her personal email for state business on an unsecured home server. President Barack Obama defended Clinton while speaking with CBS News, praising her decision to order the release of her emails.

"The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails, the BlackBerry I carry around, all those records are available and archived," said Obama. "I'm glad that Hillary's instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed."
