Witness in FBI’s Clinton Email Investigation Has “Devastating” Information
Even as Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton scoffed at Univision’s Jorge Ramos at a recent debate when he asked, “Will you drop out of the presidential race if you are indicted,” an intelligence source close to the FBI’s investigation into the former Secretary of State’s use of a private email server during her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat has revealed that Clinton’s IT technician is proving to be a “devastating witness.”
Clinton responded dismissively, “I'm not answering that question,” but may have reason to consider it now that the FBI has granted immunity to that computer tech, Bryan Pagliano.
Clinton has engaged in an evolving series of denials, excuses and explanations for her decision to set-up the private email system, maintaining that the FBI is investigating the server and not her and, alternatively, merely conducting a “review” of email practices.
She has also reverted to her oft-repeated claim that the entire matter is the work of a “vast right-wing conspiracy,” which she also blamed for the impeachment of her husband, President Bill Clinton, in the 1990s for lying under oath to a federal grand jury, which Mr. Clinton later admitted.
Mrs. Clinton, the current frontrunner in the Democrat race for the nomination, hired Pagliano, to set-up and manage her private email system, which was discovered during the course of Congressional hearings conducted on the events of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya when Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate .
Pagliano, who invoked his Fifth Amendment right, refusing to answer the committee’s questions, was granted immunity by the FBI this week in conjunction with its investigation into whether classified information was mishandled by Clinton.
The source told FOX News, “Bryan Pagliano, as the webmaster, knows exactly who had access to [Clinton’s] computer and devices at specific times. His importance to this case cannot be over-emphasized.”
Clinton private communication system has raised questions having to do with negligent handling of classified information, deliberate avoidance of federal Freedom of Information Act requests, deletion of emails that are the property of the federal government, and has also shed light on possible connections between Clinton’s work in her capacity as Secretary of State and as a member of the Clinton family’s private foundation.
Clinton’s campaign released a comment stating that she is “glad” her former IT tech is cooperating with the FBI.
