Today, Hillary Clinton claimed her reason for using personal email while Secretary of State was “convenience,” she only wanted to use one phone. However, just two weeks ago, Clinton said she used multiple devices.

Below is the transcript from today’s press conference:

QUESTION: “Why did you opt out using two devices at the time, obviously if this didn’t come out, probably wouldn’t become an issue. …”

HILLARY CLINTON: “… As I said, I saw it as a matter of convenience and it was allowed, others had done it according to the State Department which recently said Secretary Kerry was the first Secretary of State to rely primarily on State.gov email account. And when I got there, I wanted to just use one device for both personal and work emails instead of two. It was allowed, and as I said, it was for convenience and it was my practice to communicate with State Department and other government officials on their .gov accounts so those emails would be automatically saved in the State Department system to meet record keeping requirements and that indeed is what happened.” (Hillary Clinton, Press Conference At The United Nations, 3/10/15)
