 I thought Halloween was later………. :)

John Bentel, the man who oversaw then-Secretary Hillary Clinton’s technology at the State Department, refused to answer questions about his knowledge of her activities in a sworn deposition Monday, according to Judicial Watch.

Mr. Bentel had protected Mrs. Clinton during her time in office, assuring lower-level employees that her use of a secret email account had been approved, according to an inspector general’s audit. In fact, the FBI found that Mrs. Clinton didn’t ask permission and nobody had approved her arrangement.

Ordered by a judge to explain his conflicting testimony, Mr. Bentel instead demurred, declining to answer some 90 questions posed by lawyers from Judicial Watch, a conservative law firm that has sued to get a look at Mrs. Clinton’s secret emails.

He becomes the latest IT person to refuse to answer questions, citing his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
