After the FBI investigation into Hillary's "extremely careless" handling of our nation's classified documents, that jeopardized our country's security, all that happened was a little slap on the wrist and then things were back to normal. Even though the investigation of Hillary's email seemed to uncover multiple violations of federal law by the former Secretary of State, she managed to get through the entire process relatively unscathed. Now, the Republican-led Congress has made sure not to give up on making sure that somebody pays for disgusting travesty.

CNS News reports that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee had hearing on Tuesday to discover exactly why somebody was able to go into a privately held email server and delete federal records that were subject to subpoena. More importantly, they wanted to discover exactly who ordered these documents deleted.

The committee made sure to request that the 4 individuals responsible for the technical side of maintaining and setting up Hillary Clinton's server give a testimony. However, only 3 out of the 4 showed up.

Bryan Pagliano, a State Department employee in the IT division refused to come in and give his testimony.

The actions of the other employees provided little more insight into the mystery, seeing as 2 of the 3 that did show up pleaded the Fifth Amendment right that allows them to avoid self incrimination in a hearing process.

Paul Combetta and Bill Thornton, both from Platte River Networks, the IT firm was in charge of Hillary's private email server, said this at the hearing:

"On advice of counsel, I respectfully decline to answer and assert my Fifth Amendment privilege."

Many speculate that it was Combetta that was actually responsible for deleting the documents from the server once the House Select Benghazi Committee subpoenaed them.

This may not be the case in fact. During Chairman Jason Chaffetz' questioning it was revealed that Combetta had already agreed to an immunity agreement with the Justice Department that would clear him of any prosecution even if he admitted any illegal activity under oath.

The only real reason he might use the Fifth Amendment then would be that he was covering for somebody else that didn't have the same immunity deal worked out.

Nobody can know for sure just yet who exactly he is covering for but it is rather easy to make 3 very logical guesses: Obvious choice is Clinton herself and then her top aides Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills.

The only thing that the committee hearing really showed was that while these people didn't give us much direct information they're actions indicate that it is very likely that they are in fact covering for somebody who doesn't have any protection.
