For the first time since the saga of Hillary Clinton's private email server began over a year ago, the former secretary of state has had to submit written answers to questions on the issue, all given under the possibility of a penalty of perjury.

Clinton and her legal team gave what appear to be careful responses to 25 different questions, posed by the conservative and anti-Clinton group, Judicial Watch, which has released a transcript of the exchange, Judicial Watch's request for sworn testimony was approved by a federal judge in August as part of the organization's freedom of information lawsuit against the State Department for records related to Clinton aide Huma Abedin's employment status while she worked for both Clinton at the State Department and Teneo, a global consulting firm that later hired Abedin.

The Clinton team used some variation of the phrase "does not recall" 20 times in their responses, Clinton also stated that she does not recall being advised, cautioned, or warned" about hacking into her email account or server.
