MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Democratic Party nominee urged her employees to find out more about protecting their information and the different ways they could be targeted, but, as it was discovered later, she was herself in breach of security protocols as she kept her State Department correspondence, including a few classified emails, on a private server.
"… as State Department employees, we have a special duty to guard ourselves and our sensitive information," Clinton can be heard saying in a video posted by FoxNews on Friday.
According to FoxNews, Clinton's spokesman Brian Fallon dismissed the video as old, stating that these warnings were a usual State Department practice at the time.
The emails of John Podesta, Clinton's campaign chair, allegedly obtained from a hacked account and made public in October by a whistleblowing organization WikiLeaks, showed Clinton campaign staffers discussing the pros and cons of releasing emails from her private server and making sure that no other party except the state had them.
The US presidential elections will take place on November 8.
