NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev.—Hillary Clinton got into a heated exchange with reporters here Tuesday over her private email server, repeatedly insisting she did not send or receive classified information and that using a personal account was permitted at the time.
Asked whether she regretted setting up a private email server during her tenure at the State Department, Clinton said she has stated repeatedly that she does. "In retrospect, what was meant to be convenient has turned out to be anything but convenient," she said.
Still, Clinton says she did not send or receive classified information and argued that the process of sorting through and releasing her emails would have been exactly the same had she conducted business on a designated government account.
"I had not sent classified material, nor received anything marked classified," she said. "If I had had a separate government account so that I'd had a totally designated government account and a totally designated personal account, and I started running for president and I said I want the American people to see everything that was part of my time in the State Department, we would be going through the same process. That's what I want voters to understand."
