It’s insane that key witness in the House Oversight Committee’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server failed to show up, despite a subpoena.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is furious over Hillary for making a mockery of their investigation, and demanded answers today. As the committee debated the Fifth Amendment immunity of Hillary’s IT specialist Brian Pagliano, Gowdy shouted, “Where is the criminal liability?”
Pagliano has already spoken to the FBI under immunity during the investigation. But Gowdy has some questions for Democrats in Congress about just what immunity really involves:
“Congress can’t prosecute anyone and the one entity who can has granted him immunity,” Gowdy said.
“What we have done is put him under threat of criminal prosecution,”Lynch said. “It puts him in jeopardy coming before this committee while that criminal referral is in existence. He’s an American citizen. I know the Constitution gets in the way of this committee sometimes.”
Gowdy fired back, angry at the excuses Democrats have been making.
“I want to read the agreement between the Department of Justice and this witness and whether or not that agreement requires this witness to cooperate with other entities of government. That is commonplace! For them to say you can tell us the truth but you can’t tell Congress makes no sense!” Gowdy said. “That’s all I want.”
