Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is wrong to claim her predecessors in that office used similar email setups to her own, Howard Krongard, who served as the State Department inspector general from 2005 to 2008, told Fox News.

"Certainly to my knowledge at least, Secretary [Condoleezza] Rice did not have a personal server. I certainly never either sent an email to one or received an email from one," Krongard told Fox.

Krongard said he "would have been stunned had I been asked to send an email to her at a personal server, private address. I would have declined to do so on security grounds and if she had sent one to me, I probably would have started an investigation."

Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state is the subject of an FBI investigation and Freedom of Information Act lawsuits by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group.

She has insisted no sensitive state secrets were sent over the server and that the server, based in her Chappaqua, New York home, was never hacked. She also has said her use of the server was no different that Rice or Colin Powell sometimes using personal email accounts.

Krongard made note to Fox that there was never a Senate-confirmed inspector general at the State Department during Clinton's entire four-year tenure, adding that she and husband Bill Clinton have a pattern of avoiding oversight.

"I would’ve been the most unpopular person in that building [had I been there]," Krongard told Fox.
