Hillary Clinton’s IT Aide to be Held in Contempt of Congress

(Before It's News)

Hillary Clinton’s IT aide is being held in contempt of Congress.

Bryan Pagliano, the aide who set up Clinton’s private email server,failed to appear before the committee on Sept. 13 and declined to provide a copy of the immunity agreement given to him by the Justice Department during the year-long FBI investigation of Clinton’s email network.

“Subpoenas are not optional,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight Committee, at a hearing Thursday to consider Pagliano’s fate.

Pagliano handled then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server, which has come under scrutiny because of clear mishandling of classified documents by Clinton.

Last year, Pagliano’s involvement in the email controversy raised eyebrows when invoked his Fifth Amendment rights and refused to answer questions when called before the House Select Committee on Benghazi. The IT aide has never spoken about the server network in any setting other than his interview with FBI agents.

Three other technology specialists who worked on the email server appeared before the committee last week, but two pleaded their Fifth Amendment rights and walked out of the hearing room.

The Clinton Crime Family has a long history of circling the wagons when their actions have caught the attention of authorities. Hillary Clinton’s handling of, and even destruction of classified documents is beyond the pale, even for a Clinton.

The usual suspects, such as Rep. Elijah Cummings considers any investigation into the Democrat nominee’s activities an “abuse of power” and feels Donald Trump should likewise be investigated.

Here’s the thing: Donald Trump had nothing to do with a mishandling of classified government documents. Why would he need to be investigated before Congress moves forward to untangle this mass web of deception that the Clintons and Democrats have built around Clinton’s server?

Cummings has been a loyal obstructionist for the Clinton family, running block in every investigation that might otherwise prove wrongdoing on Hillary Clinton’s part.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., compared Pagliano’s subpoena to a jury summons, arguing Pagliano should have shown up to the hearing because regular citizens must show up when they are called for jury duty.

“Nobody is going to be prosecuted,” Gowdy said of the IT aide’s immunity deal. “But I’ll bet you that agreement allows for this witness to cooperate with other entities of government.”

Democrats insist that the immunity granted to Pagliano from Obama’s Department of (In)Justice and the Fifth Amendment rights he claimed should be enough to keep Congress from calling for further testimony.
