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.
with the crap this woman has pulled she needs to be prosecuted
He needs to be arrested and told, "We will now question you as to the email scandal. If we find that you do not answer or lie to congress, you will be convicted and punished to the maximum amount allowable by the law. However, if you answer every question and tell the truth, without fail, we will reconsider a possible plea bargain." END OF STORY!!
Good going, but it's going to take awhile yet to clean the sludge from the swamp.
Lets get back to the laws of this country being upheld. Not rearranged to "protect" the Dems who use this country as their own bank account.
