WASHINGTON (AP) — A former State Department employee who helped Hillary Rodham Clinton set up her private email server said he will assert his Fifth Amendment right not to testify before the House committee on Benghazi.
Attorneys for Brian Pagliano sent the committee a letter Monday saying their client would not testify at a hearing planned for next week. The panel subpoenaed Pagliano last month.
The letter was first reported Wednesday by The Washington Post. The top Democrat on the Benghazi committee, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, confirmed the letter in a memo to fellow Democrats.
Cummings wrote that he is not surprised that Pagliano would wish to take the Fifth given what Cummings calls the “wild and unsubstantiated accusations” against Clinton, the former secretary of state and current Democratic presidential candidate.
The congressional committee was launched to investigate the Obama administration’s response to the 2012 attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya. That probe has widened to include Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. Clinton has dismissed both controversies as “partisan games.”

Elijah Cummings needs to be investigated for interfering with the Benghazi committee’s investigation. I realize he is on the committee, but I’d bet he advised Pagliano to plead the fifth, the same as he was involved in the IRS scandal. When is this piece of garbage going to go to jail?
Well, it’s obvious that the ambassador of Libya had found out just how dirty the secrets are about Hilliary “what difference does it make” Clinton. Pagliano knows too so pleads the fifth….huh…..no joke. Anybody could see that coming.
Never, PIGliano is never going to jail, neither is hillbilly killery.
Evil is in control.
We’d find ourselves UNDER a prison for committing half of what the washington minions of satan are doing
They’re unsubstantiated and will be if he wants to remain among the living.
“Cummings wrote that he is not surprised that Pagliano would wish to take the Fifth given what Cummings calls the “wild and unsubstantiated accusations” against Clinton,…”
Considering the trail of bodies this evil jew c#nt has left behind, it’s no surprise to me, either.
