Thanks to the actions of the few remaining statesman in Congress, Hillary Clinton might eventually see the inside of a jail cell. If Barack Obama’s Justice Department and FBI want to preserve a shred of decency, they will act quickly on the legal filing just issued by the governing body.
Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz just filed contempt charges against Bryan Pagliano.
Pagliano was Hillary Clinton’s chief tech staffer whom last year was urged, at least publicly, by Hillary to cooperate with the email investigation.
He has failed to comply with two subpoenas ordering him to appear before Congress and answer questions.
Pagliano is apparently going to have to learn the hard way that he, unlike Hillary Clinton apparently, is not above the law—and that subpoenas are not optional.
The FBI gave Bryan Pagliano immunity during Hillary’s email scandal investigation considering the information he had to share could have directly implemented the former secretary of state in criminal activity.
Jason Chaffetz, the House Oversight Committee chair, wants to know what Pagliano told the FBI agents, and he feels the American people have the right to find out exactly what Pagliano did for Hillary as well.
“I explained Mr. Pagliano was uniquely qualified to provide testimony to help the committee better understand Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server. This is indisputable,” Chaffetz said. “I also made clear the committee would consider all options regarding Mr. Pagliano’s failure to appear including consideration of recommending he be held in contempt.”
As Chaffetz and South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy have both stated that if Pagliano was granted immunity by the FBI, then he should have been able to talk to Congress without any fear of prosecution.
When the Utah Representative questioned FBI Director James Comey about why immunity was granted to not just Pagliano but to other major players in the Clinton email scandal—Cheryl Mills and Hillary’s attorney, David Kendall—he dodged the question.
If forced to comply with the law, Hillary’s IT guy just might reveal information that could not only end her candidacy but place her in an orange jumpsuit for a decade!
