Most probably, he's in fear of perjury.


That, and fear of his life. People joke about The Clinton
Body Count but in his situation, I imagine he thinks about
it in a much different way.

He is just another person whom the Clinton's have used
to gain the millions of dollars they have selling position, favors etc.

So even if he scrapes out of it alive, his life is marked.

Who is denying the guy his right to plead the 5th?





Sure sounds like many here are saying just that. Or if he pleads the 5th.... he's guilty. That's what happened during McCarthy's reign of terror.

No one.

Whats even funnier is that under that new fangled 'Whistler Blower' Act,

The guy is protected even if he spilled the beans.

I'm relieved to know his rights are not being denied.

The Constitution is intact.

Including the 1st Amendment.

I've seen a lot of people here on various issues over the years support giving someone immunity so that there's no incrimination possible and they can't invoke the 5th. Strange behavior from people who claim to believe in the constitution.

Clintons personally paid State Department staffer to maintain server






Hillary Rodham Clinton and her family personally paid a State Department staffer to maintain the private e-mail server she used while heading the agency, according to an official from Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The unusual arrangement helped Clinton retain personal control over the system that she used for her public and private duties and that has emerged as an issue for her campaign. But, according to the campaign official, it also ensured that taxpayer dollars were not spent on a private server that was shared by Clinton, her husband and their daughter as well as aides to the former president.

That State Department staffer, Bryan Pagliano, told a congressional committee this week that he would invoke his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination instead of testifying about the setup.

The private employment of Pagliano provides a new example of the ways that Clinton — who occupied a unique role as a Cabinet secretary who was also a former and potentially future presidential candidate — hired staff to work simultaneously for her in public and private capacities.

Whats it like to be Hillary?

Clinton said, “I have no idea.”

That was as she was asked who is paying for the attorney's fees
for those who have been subpoenaed because of her refusal to
follow protocol on email practice.

In other words, she could care less who is up a creek without a paddle.

She has her money, and a shot at POTUS....all she cares about.

Basically, Clinton personally paid Pagliano $5000 to set up her private server. Pagliano never listed it as outside income from his job at State. Why not?



THE SECRET LIFE OF BRYAN PAGLIANO
Bryan Pagliano is the former State Department staffer who just advised congressional committees seeking his testimony of his intention to assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. The Washington Post’s Rosalind S. Helderman and Carol D. Leonnig enlist the assistance of three of their colleagues to report on Madam Hillary’s private arrangement with Pagliano.

The Post reports that Madam Hillary personally paid Pagliano for his services maintaining the private e-mail server she used for her official correspondence as Secretary of State. The Post reporters confirmed the story directly with an unnamed Clinton campaign official.

The Post adds this intriguing detail: “Pagliano did not list the outside income in the required personal financial disclosures he filed each year.” Pagliano’s attorney declined to comment to the Post.


What is one to make of this? The arrangement rather obviously illustrates the rationale for the unprecedented setup in the first place. As the Post reporters put it: “The unusual arrangement helped Clinton retain personal control over the system that she used for her public and private duties and that has emerged as an issue for her campaign.”

That of course is not the rationale advanced by the mysterious campaign official to whom the Post turns. According to the campaign official, the arrangement “ensured that taxpayer dollars were not spent on a private server that was shared by Clinton, her husband and their daughter as well as aides to the former president.” The arrangement is thus held out as an application of Clintonian ethics for the public good.

Who is the mysterious unnamed Clinton campaign official? The Post reports: “The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter. A campaign spokesman declined to provide a statement.”

Anonymity has its uses, which the Post kindly respects even though the reporters struggle to articulate them in this case. Let’s put it this way. No one likes to be a laughingstock

Unprecedented, beyond imagination really.

And... supposing we are not going to have an
answer as to any clearance held by Pagliano either.

But no mystery, it all server her purpose,
to hide her bake sale.

I don't like or trust Hillary Clinton but there is a clear political attack motive behind all of this. If I were this guy I would do the same thing. The justice system is easily skewed to conform to an underlying agenda that can incriminate a person without them actually being guilty. That's what the 5th Amendment is for.


Except for the fact Congress has been trying to investigate these issues starting a few years ago. The administration is the one who has dragged their feet and ignored congressional hearing questions and subpoenas. Congress has had to take the administration to court to get the information requested and the number of times this administration has lost in those legal battles speaks volumes.

Trying to blame the Republicans because Democrats opted to break the law and then stonewalled when they got caught is sad.

Talk of providing 'immunity' has begun:


Senators propose immunity for Hillary Clinton staffer to testify on email server






Two top Senate investigators offered potential immunity Tuesday to Bryan Pagliano, the staffer who set up the email server in former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s home, in exchange for testimony about her activities.

Mr. Pagliano last week said he would assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in refusing to answer questions about the matter, but Sens. Charles E. Grassley and Ron Johnson, the chairmen of two key committees investigating the situation, said they have authority to extend immunity if Mr. Pagliano is willing to talk.

They proposed a proffer session, where Mr. Pagliano would let them know what he knows in an off-the-record setting, and all sides could then decide what steps to take.

“The Committees have the authority to obtain an immunity order, to acquire the information they need, while also protecting your right against self-incrimination,” the two senators wrote in a letter to Mr. Pagliano’s lawyer.

Their offer raises the stakes for Mr. Pagliano and could create more peril for Mrs. Clinton, who has insisted she complied with all laws when operating the server.

No doubt!

What is very interesting; Trey Gowdy predicted Killary would be
apologizing soon. Wow, that was quick! LOL.

Now she is "sorry". LOL!
Yeah, she is really sorry alright, more than she knows.

"apologizing" on the outside, and cursing a voodoo doll of Gowdy on the inside.

Looks like the feds have added another 50 individuals to the investigation as well.

I am not sure whats worse... How long it took for the feds to start doing their actual jobs or Hillary trying to pull the "mea culpa" in hopes it will stem the mass exodus of supporters. Looks like some Unions are leaving as well, with one claiming she cant be trusted.

Normally I can see how an executive department can get swamped with FOIA requests. However in this case these requests have been ignored / stonewalled for years. For an administration that promised transparency something tells me they had no clue what the word meant. The criticism I believe is well founded.

Yes, I would agree.

Just reading this morning that the new "czar" is a top Clinton Donor,
that was maxed out.
