A defiant Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton wouldn't directly answer when asked whether she was the person who wiped the private email server she used as secretary of state, Fox News Channel reports.
Fox News' Ed Henry and Clinton jousted verbally for almost 5 minutes at a press conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Henry, appearing on "Special Report,"
downplayed the combativeness of the two, but video on MSNBC showed the former secretary of state was not happy with Henry's continued questioning.
Real Clear Politics
described the back-and-forth as "contentious."
Story continues below video.
Clinton said there is no news in the server, blaming any information on intelligence agency infighting.
"I pressed her, 'Isn't it also about you leaking classified information?'" Henry said, to which Clinton replied, "That's not clear. The State Department has not determined that."
"I pressed Clinton on whether she tried to wipe the server," Henry said. "She would not directly answer that question."
The video shows Clinton brushing the question off with a joke answer.
"What, with a cloth or something?" she asked.
When Henry said he meant did she wipe the server digitally, Clinton replied, "I don't know how it works digitally at all."
"Ed, I know you want to make a point, and I can just repeat what I have said," Clinton said. "In order to be as cooperative as possible we have turned over the server. They can do whatever they want to with it to figure out what's there, what's not there. "
Clinton said she turned over "every single thing" related to her work, and that she did not turn over "personal stuff" because "We had no obligation to do so."
With that, Clinton turned and walked away, ending the press conference.
