Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton refused to apologize today for her private email use while she was the secretary of state, but did apologize for the confusion it has caused (videos below).
MSNBC journalist Andrea Mitchell asked Clinton if she was "sorry" about using her personal email, reports Mediaite.com.
"Well, I certainly wish that I had made a different choice," Clinton responded. "And I know why the American people have questions about it, and I wanted to make sure that I answered those questions."
She went on to say that her personal email use "was fully above board, allowed by the state department as they have confirmed," but looking back Clinton said she would have had two email accounts, "one for personal and one for work-related."
Clinton said that she has turned over her server, asked that 55,000 pages of her state department emails be released to the public and plans to publicly testify in October in front of Congress.
Mitchell asked Clinton, "First of all, are you sorry, do you want to apologize to the American people for the choice you made?"
"Well, it wasn't the best choice," Clinton replied. She repeated her earlier defense and how it would have been "better" if she had used two separate accounts.
According to NBC News, Clinton stated later in the interview:
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, and I will continue to provide those answers ... And I take responsibility and it wasn't the best choice.
