Hillary Clinton's use of a private email account for government business while she was secretary of state did not trigger any warning bells at the time, a senior State Department official says.

"It did not register. "It did not strike any bells in my mind," Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy said in a deposition taken this week at the Justice Department, The Hill reports.

The deposition is part of an open records lawsuit filed by the political watchdog Judicial Watch, which claims the State Department wiggled around federal transparency laws by way of Clinton's exclusive use of a personal server.

The Hill quotes Kennedy as saying he did not think it out of the ordinary for Clinton to be using an account ending in clintonemail.com rather than state.gov, "because previous secretaries of State had not used email addresses at all."

"I never had received an email from any of the secretaries of State that I had ever worked for," Patrick said.
