FBI files released last week as part of the Hillary Clinton email investigation show that her private server was made in a makeshift lab on K Street, Fox News reported Friday evening.

The report also noted that it took Clinton’s IT specialist, Bryan Pagliano, months to create the server.

If Hillary Clinton’s "home-brew" server ever got the Mary Shelley treatment, IT specialist Bryan Pagliano would make a fine Dr. Frankenstein–FBI documents reveal new details about how he painstakingly created the machine over a series of months while working in a room along Washington’s storied K Street.

According to files released last Friday evening, Pagliano worked to design and build the now-infamous server inside a room once used as part of Clinton’s campaign headquarters. On the street known as Washington’s power corridor, Pagliano even used computer remnants from Clinton’s failed 2008 presidential bid, where he had worked as an IT specialist.

Pagliano said that after he made the server in the K Street lab, he rented a minivan and drove the server to Chappaqua, New York to install it in Clinton’s home, according to Fox.

After the server’s completion in the makeshift lab on K Street, Pagliano stated that he "rented a minivan and drove to Chappaqua, New York to install the email server in the Clinton residence."

In his interview with the FBI, Pagliano said that he thought the server was going to be used to send private email exchanges with Bill Clinton and his aides.

Throughout her campaign, Clinton has been an outspoken critic of K Street and Wall Street as various surrogates for her campaign have had trouble in the past defending her ties to the financial industry and top-dollar donors.

K Street in Washington, D.C. is known for historically being home to several prominent lobbying firms and a hub for big money in politics.
