— -- Hillary Clinton didn't like using email in 2000 and in light of the recent questions being raised over her personal email account, she may not now either.

Footage from a 2001 report by ABC News' Brian Ross about a disgruntled donor shows then-Sen. Clinton talking about how she had chosen to avoid email for fear of a paper trail.

"As much as I’ve been investigated and all of that, you know, why would I —- I don’t even want -— why would I ever want to do e-mail?" she's seen on tape telling Peter Paul on home video captured at a fundraiser.

"Can you imagine?" she said.

Times changed and Clinton used email throughout her tenure as secretary of state, but questions that are being asked now stem from her decision not to use a government-backed email service.

Instead, it was revealed this week that she used a personal email account at a domain based at her New York home, according to the Associated Press.
