Hillary Clinton continues to defend her email record as secretary of state, saying she acted within the law.
"Everything that I did was permitted. There was no law, there was no regulation, there was nothing that did not give me the full authority to decide how I was going to communicate," the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner said in a CNN interview broadcast Sunday.
According to Clinton, she chose to use a personal email account instead of an official government one during her tenure at the State Department due to her slim technological prowess.
"Previous secretaries of state have said they did the same thing, and people across the government knew that I used one device," she argued. "Maybe it was because I'm not the most technically capable person and wanted to make it easy as possible."
Clinton also rejected the reports that she ignored a congressional subpoena to release more email records — although the House Benghazi Committee subpoenaed Hillary Clinton for her emails this past March.
As controversy and trust issues continue to dog Clinton's campaign, she continues to say that she never did anything wrong, even when she deleted thousands of emails.
"I had one device. When I mailed anybody in the government, it would go into the government system," she told CNN. "Now, I didn't have to turn over anything. I chose to turn over 55,000 pages because I wanted to go above and beyond what was expected of me because I knew the vast majority of everything that was official already was in the State Department system."
