Why would a simple IT guy take the Fifth when asked to testify before Congress? It’s when he knows he’s in big trouble.
And what Congress may not get out of him, the FBI will.
His job is to set up computers and walk away, right? Not when the Clintons are involved.
According to The Examiner:
Bryan Pagliano worked as an operative for Hillary’s presidential campaign in 2008. Shortly before she assumed her role as Secretary of State in 2009, he set up the private email server at Hillary’s New York home. After Hillary’s appointment as Secretary of State, Pagliano was hired to work in the IT department at the State Department. He worked there from May 2009 through February 2013, when Hillary departed as Secretary of State. Currently he works at a private technology company providing services to, you guessed it, the State Department.
Can you imagine the discussions the Clintons had with him, when he came to their home to set up the servers?
Are you sure we are protected? What do we do in the event of a raid? Do you have the electromagnets in place to erase the drives? We must be assured that our corruption will never be known!
If anyone could expose the depths of this scandal it’s Pagliano.
According to a former law enforcement instructor, the FBI should be the ones interrogating Pagliano and not the Congress. As reported in The Examiner:
“ ‘If Mr. Pagliano won’t talk to lawmakers, perhaps he should be interrogated by experts in law enforcement, such as FBI investigators. The FBI wrote the book on detection of deception during the interview process,’ said former police instructor Nicolas Mariano, who uses the so-called Reid Method of Interrogation and Interview as part of his training syllabus. ‘The first thing they have got to do is stop treating this as a political circus and treat it as a criminal investigation complete with grilling of suspects or hostile witnesses,’ Mariano told Examiner”
As with any typical Liberal Democrat in denial, Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) accuses the Republicans of viciously trying to bring down Hillary’s presidential campaign. Cummings was quoted by The Washington Post:
“ ’Although multiple legal experts agree there is no evidence of criminal activity, it is certainly understandable that this witness’s attorneys advised him to assert his Fifth Amendment rights, especially given the onslaught of wild and unsubstantiated accusations by Republican presidential candidates, members of Congress and others based on false leaks about the investigation,’ Cummings said. ‘Their insatiable desire to derail Secretary Clinton’s presidential campaign at all costs has real consequences for any serious congressional effort.’ ”
Our sources reported that the scandal was leaked by Valerie Jarrett back in April. If you believe what we reported, the email leak was an attempt to sabotage Hillary’s campaign and instead make Joe Biden the Democratic nominee. Check and almost check.
As for Pagliano, his role in his own words in his LinkedIn profile, as reported by the Examiner:
“Bryan Pagliano’s service is self-described on LinkedIn.com as being Hillary Clinton’s IT Director between 2006 and 2009. He says on his profile: ‘Advanced from providing technical engineering and support to directing the efforts of the campaign’s IT operations and logistics team. Headed the design and [sic] build of the campaign headquarters’ data center and orchestrated the continuous movement of technical equipment and staff among nationwide field offices in response to ever-changing organizational needs. Collaborated closely with the campaign’s chief financial and information officers to establish and manage IT budgets. Negotiated and provided oversight for contractor service agreements. Responsible for all aspects of core centralized and branch office IT infrastructure.’ ”
It’s no wonder he’s pleading the Fifth. I would too.
