• Coverup: Staffer pleading Fifth Over Hillary Clinton Emails

    Hillary Clinton’s staffer plans to invoke the Fifth Amendment when called to testify about the former Secretary of State’s private emails and setting up her private e-mail server.

    The IT specialist, Bryan Pagliano, worked for Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign and also at the State Department, setting up her e-mail in 2009.

    He was subpoenaed to testify before the House Benghazi Committee on Sept. 10.

    Clinton campaign insists they encouraged him to testify but he has decided to take the Fifth, not to testify because he simply didn’t want to be drawn into a political spectacle.

    His lawyer says Pagliano will not answer questions, asserting his constitutional right against self-incrimination and also would not produce documents responsive to the congressional subpoena.

    Clinton has claimed repeatedly she never sent nor received email marked classified on her private server, but investigations have shown hundreds of emails released by the State Department are tagged that way.
