A USA Today editorial excoriates Hillary Clinton's use of private email during her stint as secretary of state, saying a new report on the practice proves it was "a threat to national security."

Noting the State Department's Inspector General report makes it " clear that, in using the private email server, Clinton broke the rules," the editorial warns an FBI investigation has yet to weigh in.

"Now it remains to be seen whether she also broke the law," the editorial states.

Clinton has conceded it was a mistake in 2009 when she decided for convenience, to run her email system from her home in in Chappaqua, N.Y., rather than use the State Department email account.

"But a new report by State's inspector general makes it clear that within two years, Clinton's bad decision had turned into something far worse: a threat to national security, one that she repeatedly ignored despite multiple warnings," the editorial declares.

The warnings, according to the editorial, came within a span of six months and "should have made any responsible public official … aware of the national security dangers of failing to secure the secretary of State's email communications."

"Instead, Clinton and several of her top aides continued to use personal email for sensitive State Department business thousands of times," the editorial states.

"To be president, she is going to have to convince voters that she can put the national security of the United States above her own short-term self-interest."
