Clinton’s IT Aide to Plead the Fifth in Email Lawsuit
June 2, 2016
(Newsmax) – The man believed to have set up and maintained Hillary Clinton’s private email server will assert his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination and refuse to answer questions as part of an open records lawsuit against the State Department, The Hill newspaper reported on Wednesday.
Bryan Pagliano will decline to answer questions from Judicial Watch, the conservative legal watchdog group, during a deposition scheduled for Monday, his lawyers wrote in a court filing on Wednesday afternoon, according to The Hill.
Judicial Watch, which has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking information about Clinton’s use of a private server for State Department business, declined Pagliano’s lawyers’ request to drop its subpoena.
