Hillary Clinton's email habits while she served as Secretary of State are under scrutiny.

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington.

Hillary Clinton used a private email address during her time at the State Department, instead of an official government address.  The private account was discovered by the House Select Committee on Benghazi, raising concerns she violated federal law requiring official messages to be retained for the record.  

In a statement, a Clinton spokesperson said the letter and spirit of the rules permits State Department officials to use non-government email, and that when Clinton emailed government officials, she had every expectation they would be retained.
