Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, who goes by the name "Guccifer," said in two separate interviews he was able to hack into Hillary Clinton's private email account when she was Secretary of State.

Lazar told NBC News Clinton's email account, which was set up on a private server controlled by the Clintons, was "completely unsecured."

"It was like an open orchid on the Internet," Lazar told NBC from a Bucharest prison. "There were hundreds of folders."

Lazar was extradited to the United States last month because he's been charged with hacking into the email accounts belonging to Gen. Colin Powell, someone in the Bush family, and Sidney Blumenthal, a close confidant to the Clintons.

In a separate and more recent interview with Fox News from an Alexandria, Va. jail, Lazar said gaining access to Clinton's email account was not difficult.

"For me, it was easy ... easy for me, for everybody," said Lazar, who told Fox he accessed the server "like twice."

"I was not paying attention," he said regarding the content on the server. "For me, it was not like the Hillary Clinton server, it was like an email server she and others were using with political voting stuff."

Lazar told Fox he first hacked into an AOL account belonging to Blumenthal, and after discovering several emails from Clinton there, he was able to gain entry into her server and have a look using "an IP scanner."

"As far as I remember, yes, there were … up to 10, like, IPs from other parts of the world," Lazar said, alluding to the number of different addresses set up on the Clinton server.

Clinton, the leading Democrat in the race for president, has been under fire for her use of the private email server when she was Secretary of State from 2009-2013. The FBI is investigating the matter, although it has yet to contact Clinton for an interview.

In March 2013, The Smoking Gun first reported that Lazar had hacked into Blumenthal's AOL account and found messages there from Clinton.
