Lawyers for a former State Department staffer who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private email system have notified a House committee that their client will not testify Tuesday morning, saying that he previously invoked his constitutional right against self-incrimination before another Republican-led panel of Congress.
Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up a server for her in her New York home in 2009 during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, last year invoked the Fifth Amendment and declined to answer questions by a House committee investigating the 2012 attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.
On Monday, Pagliano’s attorneys sharply criticized a new subpoena issued Thursday evening by Rep.
