The latest detail in the ongoing scandal. The New York Times reporting late, Thursday, that the information came from notes to feds delivered to congress this week.
Containing details from a three-hour interview the agency conducted with Clinton over her private email use. Reuters could not independently verify the report. The Times also cited an upcoming book that described the dinner conversation during which Powell told Clinton to use her own email, except for classified information. Powell's office in a statement said, he could not recall the dinner conversation, but did remember an email memo he sent to Clinton, describing his use of a personal AOL email account for unclassified messages.

Powell has said, he had no choice back then as the department did not have a fully functioning email system of it's own, when he joined in 2001. Separately, Clinton has also faced criticism over donations given to Clinton Foundation.
