A security agent told the FBI that Hillary Clinton was "contemptuous" of those protecting her when she was secretary of state, and "disregarded security and diplomatic protocols," Fox News reported. 

The stinging critique by an unnamed agent was included in pages of documents released by the FBI Monday that related to its probe of Clinton's private email server.

The agent was responsible for protecting Clinton.

"Agents were indignant that they were required to follow security policy but [Clinton] made herself exempt from the same regulations," the agent complained, including during a 2009 visit to Indonesia, where the agent charged that Clinton overrode security recommendations to stay out of potentially hostile areas in Jakarta, Fox News reported.

Clinton put the traveling party in "unnecessary danger in order to conduct a photo opportunity for 'her election campaign,'" the document says.

“…[the Diplomatic Security advance team] recommended in writing that this excursion be stricken from the schedule but were told by DS management that it was going to happen because 'she wanted it,'" the document says.

"It was also believed that [Clinton] disregarded security and diplomatic protocols, occasionally without regard for the safety of her staff and protection detail, in order to gain favorable press."
