WASHINGTON — The New York Times reports e-mails by Hillary Clinton may have violated federal laws.

The Times reports Clinton did not use a secure government e-mail account when she was secretary of state.

She used her personal e-mail instead.

But those e-mails are considered government records that are to be preserved, under the Federal Records Act.

Clinton aides didn’t turn over her e-mails, until they were requested two months ago.

They handed over 55,000 pages of e-mails.

A spokesperson says Clinton expected the e-mails to be retained, but he did not say why she used a personal account.
