Hillary Clinton bought used BlackBerry mobile phone on eBay, a top Republican on Capitol Hill revealed, as reported by the Washington Examiner.

The reason behind this is the former secretary of state preferred older models that the smartphone company had long retired, the report revealed.

"I don't want to get into this too much, but part of what was happening with the secretary of state was, she was acquiring technology that wasn't even supported by BlackBerry," House Oversight Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz was quoted as saying.

"You couldn't buy it. She was actually buying this stuff off of eBay because somebody was selling their old machine. That's what she liked, so she did. It creates this huge vulnerability. And it's unnecessary," Chaffetz added.

Last week, FBI revealed that Clinton used 13 personal devices as secretary of state, including eight Blackberrys. Clinton frequently lost or misplaced her smartphone, the notes said. It was also reported that Bill Clinton's aide Justin Cooper destroyed two old devices with a hammer.

Despite the FBI's decision not to recommend the Justice Department pursue Clinton on criminal charges, Chaffetz has pledged to continue using his House committee to investigate the Democratic presidential candidate.
