Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed to comply with the State Department's records policies, an inspector general report has found.
According to Politico, the report from the State Department Inspector General was given to federal legislators Wednesday.
At issue is Clinton's use of a private email account during her time as Secretary of State, an issue that her Republican opponents have used against her in the presidential campaign.
The inspector general report, according to Politico, criticizes Clinton for her private email use. The watchdog also notes that the agency overall has had "longstanding, systemic weaknesses" related to records that "go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State."
"Therefore, Secretary Clinton should have preserved any Federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary," reads the report. "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."
Additionally, Clinton's top aides reportedly did not to cooperate with the inspector general's review.
