A new batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by a conservative watchdog group shows she instructed a top aide to call her on her unsecured home phone when a secure line failed.

The email exchange, dated February 22, 2009, was between Clinton and her then-Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, as the two were attempting to talk over a secure phone line after Clinton had returned from a trip, apparently to Asia, Judicial Watch reports.

"I called ops and they gave me your 'secure' cells… but only got a high-pitched whining sound," Clinton wrote.

Mills told Clinton to try to secure line again, but Clinton wrote back, "I give up. Call me on my home #."

The Hill noted that it cannot be determined from the emails whether Clinton and Mills ever did speak and, if they did, whether they discussed classified information over the home telephone line or if they made sure to avoid such topics.

Judicial Watch obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, and the group's president, Tom Fitton, was critical of how the emails are being released slowly over time.

"This drip, drip of new Clinton emails show Hillary Clinton could not care less about the security of her communications," Fitton said. "How many other smoking gun emails are Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators in the Obama administration hiding from the American people?"

The email is not the first in which Clinton appears to be trying to get around secure systems. In one missive released in January, she tells aide Jake Sullivan to strip off identifying markings before faxing a document to her over and nonsecure fax. 

Responding to critics, Clinton has said she never sent or received anything on her homebrew server that was "marked classified at the time." Some emails have since been deemed classified.
