Posted on 09/02/2015 7:37:41 PM PDT by Chode
A former aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton who helped set up the server that housed Mrs. ClintonÂs private email account plans to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to congressional questions about the email practices, according to two people briefed on the matter. The former aide, Bryan Pagliano, was subpoenaed to testify before the House committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya. But a lawyer for Mr. Pagliano, Mark MacDougall, has told the committee that Mr. Pagliano will decline to answer their questions and assert his Fifth Amendment privilege. âMr. âPagliano was the information technology director for Mrs. ClintonÂs 2008 presidential campaign and then worked at the State Department as an adviser and special projects manager for its chief technology officer, according to his LinkedIn page. He left the State Department in February 2013, the same month Mrs. Clinton stepped down as secretary of state. ItÂs not clear why Mr. Pagliano is refusing to answer questions about the server. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating how classified information was handled in connection with the account, but no evidence has surfaced that Mr. Pagliano had anything to do with how those materials were handled. âMr. âMacDougall declined to comment. The Republican-controlled committee had planned to call Mr. Pagliano to testify behind closed doors, similar to how it has interviewed âsome top aides to Mrs. Clintonâ,â and Americans who were on the ground in Benghazi.â âEven if Mr. Pagliano does not back down from his refusal to testify, the panel will most likely still call him to testify and force him to invoke the Fifth Amendment rights in âperson, in âresponse to questions.â Mr. PaglianoÂs response to the subpoena was first reported by The Washington Post Mrs. ClintonÂs longtime lawyer and adviser, Cheryl Mills, is scheduled to testify

What is it with all of these communist DemocRATS taking the Fifth all the time?
I bet Pagliano knows something and is afraid of getting Vince Fostered.
ItÂs not clear why Mr. Pagliano is refusing to answer questions about the server
Just like its not clear why jihadists commit jihad.
Let’s Make a Deal !
Immunity under 200 ?
Wasn't it Alinsky, or Marx or someone like them that said "we will destroy them with their own constitution"?
They take every advantage of the constitution while trying to destroy it.
Not clear. Hmmmmm. Not even a wild guess??? When my son was 12 years old, I could have given him the known facts in this matter in about five minutes and he could have given a very good reason to invoke the Fifth.
Eventually, they’ll just grant him immunity, which will nullify his Fifth Amendment to not testify. That’s probably what his lawyer is going for.
Thank you. a relative oldie but a goodie...and perhaps better than ever now the actions actually heating up!!
This guy could be headed for a landfill.
More than a drip, drip drip.
He’ll take the 5th and Hillary will drink one.
