Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) released the email exchange between Colin Powell and Hillary Clinton pertaining to her use of a private email server while she was secretary of State. “This email exchange shows that Secretary Powell advised Secretary Clinton with a detailed blueprint on how to skirt security rules and bypass requirements to preserve federal records, although Secretary Clinton has made clear that she did not rely on this advice," Cummings said in a statement attached the release. He added that it also illustrates how it’s a problem that “no secretary of State ever used an official unclassified email account until the current secretary of State.”
