Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's staff pushed back against suggestions that she drop use of her private email server and use a state.gov address instead, The Daily Caller reports

According to emails obtained by the Caller through a Freedom of Information Act request, State Department Executive Secretary Stephen D. Mull made the suggestion in August 2011 when Clinton's private server was having trouble staying online.

The emails show that State Department officials, including Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy, were fully aware Clinton was using a private server, the Caller's Chuck Ross writes.

"We are working to provide the Secretary per her request a Department issued BlackBerry to replaced her personal unit which is malfunctioning," Mull wrote in the exchange, saying that the malfunction was "possibly because of [sic] her personal email server is down."

Mull offered Clinton two BlackBerrys, one of which would have "an operating State Department email account." He also said the State account "would mask her identity" but "would also be subject to FOIA requests."

Huma Abedin, one of Clinton's longtime aides, replied that the suggestion "doesn’t make a whole lot of sense."

Crashes of Clinton's private server, which was kept in her Chappaqua, N.Y. home, continued even after the 2011 email exchange, the Caller notes, meaning that the issue was never repaired.

Clinton's use of a private email server has drawn criticism from Republicans who say government secrets could have been found by foreign hackers. Clinton insists nothing marked "Classified" was ever sent over the system, though some of the communications have been designated as such after the fact.
