In a sit-down interview with NBC News' Andrea Mitchell on Friday, Hillary Clinton conceded that she "should have had two accounts, one for personal and one for work related" while secretary of state. The Democratic front-runner, though, repeatedly declined to directly apologize for that decision:

"At the end of the day, I am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions, but there are answers to all these questions. ... I take responsibility and it wasn’t the best choice."
