Clinton IT specialist ignores subpoena for House hearing; other witnesses plead 5th

Hillary Clinton - CriminalThe former State Department IT specialist who set up Hillary Clinton’s private server ignored a subpoena to appear Tuesday before a House committee hearing, while other tech experts who helped maintain the system asserted their Fifth Amendment right not to testify – frustrating Republican lawmakers trying to dig deeper into the former secretary of state’s email setup.

House oversight committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said he’ll now consider a “full range of options” to address IT aide Bryan Pagliano’s “failure” to attend.

“He should be here. … It is not optional,” Chaffetz said. “His attendance is required here.”

  • And what happened to the witnesses that were granted immunity? If you are granted immunity it is assumed that you are going testify for the Prosecution. It’s tit for tat.

    But these witnesses were granted immunity without giving anything in exchange — the entire process stinks of corruption through and through.

      Immunity can be lifted if they refuse to cooperate.

      • I guess that’s why Chaffetz is speaking so authoritatively — Pagliano can be prosecuted. He can end up being the “fall guy” and go to jail.

  • Ron MacDonald

    He’s probably dead.

    He really wanted to attend, but the Clintons made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.

    And MSM is the tank for this banana republic grifter. Hillary is the Santa Anna of American politics. Her corruption and incompetence will cause a hugh defeat and a deep trauma from which the country won’t recover from

    It should be a massive scandal that Clinton’s aids are taking the 5th amendment so as not to testify before the House committee. If the press were doing its job, Clinton’s presidential bid would be stone-cold dead.

      But the press are doing their job as the PR wing of the Democrat Party.

    New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said he has opened an investigation into the Donald J. Trump Foundation

    ….slight problem……..

    NY AG, Eric Scheiderman is part of the Hillary Victory Fund.

    • They might be getting desperate. An investigator on Newsmax last night said there’s a real possibility that the actual value of the Clinton Foundation could be more than $100 Billion — not the $2 Billion they declared. Reason being,

      (a) the way the Clinton Foundation is set up to channel donations
      (b) it has never been audited — ever

      Apparently Trump is audited all the time.

    It is remarkable that people having been granted immunity are taking the 5th. What they really should be saying is, “I refuse to answer that question on the grounds it may incriminate someone more powerful than I am.” Because, with immunity, they cannot incriminate themselves.

    • I don’t think the immunity people can take the 5th because they already supposedly made a deal, but the rest of them can. I dunno, none of it makes sense at this point. Maybe DbN can enlighten us.

        They just negated their deals. Hope they like wearing orange.
