Yesterday, we heard from three people at the center of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
Two of them plead the fifth and basically nothing.
The third answered a few questions.
A fourth person was supposed to be there, but he didn’t even show up.
He is pretty important. In fact, he is the one who was managing Hillary’s private server.
From The Daily Caller:
Bryan Pagliano, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s former IT aide who managed her private email server, shunned a congressional subpoena to appear Tuesday at a House panel’s hearing on the Department of State’s records preservation practices.
“It’s a serious matter,” House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (HOGR) Chairman and Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz said in the hearing, facing Pagliano’s empty chair. “Mr. Pagliano has chosen to evade the subpoena.”
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform invited Pagliano, along with IT contractors from Denver-based Platte River Networks (PRN) Clinton used to host her private email server, to testify before the committee in their second of three hearings in one week on Clinton’s emails.
And here is another quote from Chaffetz.
From Washington Post:
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said he will consider a “full range of options” to address the absence of Bryan Pagliano, who set up a private server in Clinton’s New York residence in 2009, at a hearing on Clinton’s record-keeping.
“When you are served a subpoena by the United States Congress, that is not optional,” Chaffetz said.
“If anybody is under any illusion that I’m going to let go of this and just let it sail off into the sunset, they are very ill-advised.”
Chaffetz is definitely right on this one.
This just goes to the fundamental thought of if Hillary did nothing wrong, then why has so much energy been put in covering her tracks.
