US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has refused to apologize for using a private email server while serving as secretary of state.
Clinton, however, said she was “sorry” that the issue has caused confusion for Americans.
“At the end of the day I am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions, but there are answers to all these questions,” the Democratic frontrunner told MSNBC in an interview on Friday.
“You know, I was not thinking a lot when I got in. There was so much work to be done. We had so many problems around the world,” said Clinton, who was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. “I didn’t really stop and think, ‘What kind of email system will there be?’”
Clinton has come under fire from her Republican rivals in the 2016 presidential race since it emerged in March that she used a personal email account on an unsecured private sever for official business.
The former first lady has denied handling classified information on her private server. However, federal investigators, looking into the latest batch of Clinton’s emails released by the State Department, have determined that at least 150 of them contain classified information.
