(ABC News) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doubled down on defending her email practices as Secretary of State, arguing that the use of a personal account was "allowed," and rules have since been "clarified."
"This report makes clear that personal email use was the practice for other secretaries of state," Clinton told ABC News in an interview in Las Vegas, Nevada. "It was allowed. And the rules have been clarified since I left."

It also found that she should have turned over emails after her tenure and violated department policy.
