Clinton on Sunday pushed back against criticism that her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state left her vulnerable to security concerns, saying her use was the result of a “complex set of circumstances.”
“We were never under a no-fly zone.
We were never in a situation where we couldn’t do our job,” she told CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
But she also defended her handling of sensitive classified information, which she said did not compromise national security.
“We did everything we could in terms of security,” Clinton said.
“And when you have something like a no fly zone, you’re under a complete no-go zone.
I mean, we were never there.
So I’m not saying that was easy, but it was certainly the right decision.”
So, yes, I had some vulnerabilities.
But the vast majority of people have vulnerabilities, and we’re working to mitigate them.
I have no regrets in any way, shape or form,” she added.
She said her email arrangement was a matter of convenience, not the responsibility of any specific administration or a particular person.
Clinton has faced backlash for her decision to use a private server in the midst of her tenure at the State Department.
Trump has called her “the worst secretary of the United States.”
The Republican nominee has also claimed that Clinton “took more money from foreign governments than any other secretary of State,” while her husband has repeatedly said he would have given the former first lady a larger salary had she not resigned.
