Oversight Committee Pursues Charges Against Clinton IT Aide Who Received DOJ Immunity

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is pursuing charges against Bryan Pagliano, the architect of Hillary Clinton’s email system who ignored subpoenas to testify in front of Congress last year.

Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the committee, asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a letter Thursday to convene a grand jury to pursue charges against Pagliano in the matter.

“The authority to compel witnesses is integral to Congress’s and the Committee’s investigative powers,” Chaffetz stated in the referral.

“Allowing Mr. Pagliano’s conduct to go unaddressed would gravely harm Congress’s ability to conduct oversight. This letter details the Committee’s significant efforts to work with Pagliano and his attorneys to avoid the necessity of a criminal referral — including giving Pagliano a second opportunity to show up after first failing to appear.”

Pagliano was subpoenaed by Congress to testify on Sept. 13 and Sept. 22 but failed to up to the hearings. The Oversight Committee then voted to hold Pagliano in contempt of Congress.

Pagliano worked for Clinton at the State Department. There, he set up and maintained her secret email system, on which classified information was stored.

He received limited immunity from the Justice Department in exchange for his cooperation in the email investigation, which explored whether classified information was mishandled but ended with no charges filed against Clinton or anyone else.

Prior to cooperating with federal investigators, Pagliano pleaded the Fifth during an interview with the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

He was found in contempt.  So how come he was never arrested by the sergeant-at arms?  That's supposed to be the next step.   

The Sergeant-at arms doesn't have jurisdiction to arrest outside of the Capitol... Pagliano is avoiding any scheduled appearances in the Capitol.  With a new AG and President... the FBI or the US Marshall service can be used to arrest and hold Pagliano in Contempt of Congress.

We The People now have a LEGAL sitting US President and a DOJ that follows US Constitutional law . Gail Hillary Rotten Clinton for treason ! 


Charles, Jailing her is to easy, she and her close net so called friends should undergo Water Boarding teragation Like the rest of the Muslim criminals that attacked our country.

It's going to take some time to drain the swamp, we need to give President Trump, & V.P. Pence as much support as possible.

Send your support to Trump on 3/15/2017.  

President Donald J. Trump

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave. N W

Washington DC  20500

Many groups have been passing this around to flood the W H with support by his supporters.   Mailing date 3/15/2017 -   feel free to mail more than one.   Let's let him know we stand with him.

SO -


His immunity is only good if he has told the truth... AND cooperates with ALL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES in connection with the immunity grant... that includes Congress.  He has not cooperated with Congress and his immunity should be void.  Congress needs to ask the DOJ to prosecute any crimes that may have been previously unavailable due to the immunity agreement... which is now void... as he has not cooperated with all government agencies in this investigation.

Col Nelson,

Just curious, as I usually always read your posts.  Did you get your knowledge of the government in your job as a Col or outside.  You seem to know a lot about the law in these situations.   

Thank you,



My knowledge comes from years of experience... in dealing with various government agencies, and the law as they applies to administering civil service employees.  I am not an attorney and my legal opinions are not meant too be legal advice. 

I will not be coming to DC in March... I don't see how that will help. I will attend rallies locally and work with my Federal Representative too make my views known regarding the need to drain the swamp... which should be our number 1 priority.

go get them

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
