Hillary Clinton "did not comply" with State Department policies when she chose to use a personal email account to conduct government business, according to an inspector general's report released Wednesday.
The State Department faulted Clinton and previous secretaries of state for poorly managing email and other computer information and for slowly responding to new cybersecurity risks.
The report cites "longstanding, systemic weaknesses" related to communications that precede Clinton's appointment as secretary of state. The State Department singled out Clinton's failures as "more serious," however, according to the Associated Press.
"At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department's policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act," the report reads.
