Hillary Clinton just can't escape emailgate! A notorious Romanian hacker, "Guccifer," has come forward with claims he repeatedly breached Hillary Clinton's personal email server in 2013.

Fox News spoke to the hacker, 44-year-old Marcel Lehel Lazar, who is currently being held in a Virginia jail for federal charges relating to other alleged cyber-crimes. Lazar claimed he compromised Clinton advisor Sidney Blumenthal's AOL account, and used it as a "stepping stone" to the Clinton server.

"For me, it was easy ... easy for me, for everybody," Lazar said.

The hacker said he was able to breach her account "like twice," but the contents were not interesting to him.

"I was not paying attention. For me, it was not like the Hillary Clinton server, it was like an email server she and others were using, with political voting stuff," he said.

Lazar has no formal computer training and was able to do his hacking from a Romanian village.

The hacker's claim has not been confirmed and Clinton's campaign has denied that the breach occurred at all. "There is absolutely no basis to believe the claims made by this criminal from his prison cell," Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement.

But the hacker's allegations raise more concerns about how Clinton may have compromised national security by using her private email server, rather than using a State Department server.

Clinton has insisted that she didn't send any classified information through her private email server, but this claim will surely add fuel to Donald Trump's fire when he likely competes against Clinton in the general election!
