Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a personal email account to conduct all government business during her tenure, prompting former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs to describe the arrangement as "highly unusual," Politico reported.

Gibbs said he could not think of any good reason for why she wouldn't be set up on a government account, a situation which could be in violation of federal record requirements.

"I think it is, obviously, highly unusual," Gibbs said on NBC's "Today" on Tuesday morning, according to Politico.

The State Department told Politico that thousands of her emails were not preserved as a result.

The Times reported that upon request for her emails, Clinton's advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages and decided which communications to turn over to the State Department. In total, an estimated 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department.

Gibbs said that Clinton's team should be called upon to account for the situation.

"There are lots of briefings that you have, certainly when you go into the White House about preserving any email that you have, making sure it's part of your official account," he said, according to Politico.

"I think it's something that they’re going to have to explain in good measure today and probably figure out how to get a lot of those emails, or as many as they can, back to the archives."

He added, "I think this is another one of those things the Clinton campaign, such as it is, is going to have to explain," he said.
