New documents released in the Hillary Clinton email investigation show the former Secretary of State chose not to use a secure phone line and knew about the risk of using a private phone.
The documents, released by the watchdog group Judicial Watch on Thursday, contain an email between Clinton and her then-Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills from Feb. 22, 2009, Fox News reported. The two attempted to communicate over a secure line but had some issues setting up.
“I called ops and they gave me your ‘secure’ cells… but only got a high-pitched whining sound,” Clinton wrote, according to Fox. “I give up. Call me on my home #,” she responded after Mills suggested she try the secure line again.
Another email, released Wednesday, reveals Clinton’s apology to health care activist/physician Mark Hyman for not responding to his message. In the communication from Feb. 27, 2008, Clinton acknowledged the reason was “no blackberry contact permitted in my office,” referring to a private cell phone.
The Democratic presidential candidate continues to play down the significance of the criminal investigation, referring to the probe as just a “security inquiry.” Clinton also maintained that the FBI has not contacted her about the investigation, according to Fox.
