Earlier today it was reported that Rep. Jason Chaffetz and the Oversight Committee hit the FBI with a subpoena regarding Hillary Clinton and her personal email server. Bryan Pagliano, the former State Department computer specialist for Clinton, was scheduled to testify Tuesday before that committee regarding the subpoena.
Pagliano ignored the scheduled meeting, and is rejecting the subpoena. Chaffetz says there will be substantial consequences for Pagliano’s refusal to appear and for essentially “thumbing his nose at Congress.” However, a letter from Pagliano’s attorney says Pagliano will continue to assert his constitutional right not to testify before Chaffetz and the committee.
This is not the first time Pagliano has ignored scheduled meetings requiring his presence or denying to testify. He once refused to answer questions last year before a House panel investigating the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
Chaffetz has not stated yet what the consequences will be for Pagliano’s refusal to attend.
