Clinton Disagrees With Self Over Private Email

'I now disagree with the choice I made'

Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton now disagrees with the decision of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to use a private email server for official business, Clinton said Friday.

"I now disagree with the choice I made," Clinton said, while maintaining that her use of private email for state secrets was above-board.

Clinton discussed her widening email scandal with MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell.

"The first words that came to mind when asked about you are ‘liar,’ ‘untrustworthy,’ ‘crooked,’" Mitchell said. "How does that make you feel?"

"It certainly doesn’t make me feel good," Clinton said, "but I am very confident that by the time this campaign has run its course people will know that what I have been saying is accurate."

Clinton said she will have a chance to clear her name when she testifies before the House Select Committee on Benghazi in October.

"They [committee members] may disagree as I now disagree with the choice that I made, but the facts I have put forth have remained the same," Clinton said.

Clinton also refused twice to apologize for her decisions with her private email server during her interview with Mitchell, saying she did wish she had made a different choice and saying she was sorry the American people felt "confusion" about her choices.

Clinton's numbers on honesty and favorability have suffered throughout the scandal, which first came to light in March. Clinton falsely claimed at the time to have never sent nor received classified information through her server.

Her sit-down Friday with Mitchell marks the third nationally televised interview Clinton has given since she began her campaign for president in April.
