Former Secretary of State Colin Powell told Hillary Clinton, while she was getting started as President Barack Obama's first secretary of state, that he used a personal computer to circumvent government servers while he worked at the State Department, according to emails released by Democrats on the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.

"What I did do was have a personal computer that was hooked up to a private phone line (sounds ancient). So I could communicate with a wide range of friends directly without it going through the State Department on their personal email accounts. I did the same thing on the road in hotels," Powell wrote. “I even used it to do business with some foreign leaders and some of the senior folks in the Department on their personal email accounts."
