Hillary Clinton has 30 days to provide written answers to 25 questions stemming from her use of a private e-mail server during her four years as U.S. secretary of state.

Among the questions, drawn up by the watchdog group Judicial Watch with the permission of a federal judge, the Democratic presidential nominee is asked to explain under oath why and how that private e-mail system was created, when she decided to use it for official business, if she understood such messages would be subject to disclosure under the federal Freedom of Information Act and whether anyone warned her about the risks of hacking.
