Hillary Clinton told FBI investigators that Colin Powell advised her to use private email while in her role as secretary of state, The New York Times reported.

Not part of the public narrative of Clinton's email scandal, former Secretary of State Powell purportedly offered that bit of advice at a dinner party, the Times reported, upon its review of a book detailing the event.

"Powell told her to use her own email, as he had done, except for classified communications, which he had sent and received via a State Department computer," reads the passage from the book quoted by the Times.

For his part, Powell released a statement saying he has no recollection of the dinner conversation, the Times reported.

Powell acknowledged in the statement that he did communicate to Clinton his use of private email for unclassified messages, writing, "how it vastly improved communications within the State Department," according to the Times.

Powell did not, however, have a private server in his home, the Times reported.

A State Department inspector general report back in May said that by the time Clinton took office as Secretary of State, having a private server was not allowed because of "significant security risks," the Times reported.
