When Congress sends you a subpoena showing up is not optional. Not showing up is a criminal act.
So when Hillary Clinton’s IT man who deleted her emails after they were under subpoena failed to appear, the House voted to take action against him as the law prescribes…..but every Democrat voted no on taking action. They literally voted to allow/endorse such criminal behavior all in an effort to protect Hillary.
Can there be any doubt that to Democrats power is more important than the law and the truth?
NOTE: Pagliano was given immunity by the DoJ, so he has no 5th Amendment excuse to not testify. This is all about Hillary.
A House panel voted Thursday to hold Bryan Pagliano, a former technology aide to Hillary Clinton, in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about the private email set-up Clinton used as secretary of state.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted 19-15 along party lines, to send a contempt resolution to the full House. The move against Pagliano took place despite repeated warnings from his attorney that the showdown was fruitless since the computer specialist would assert his Fifth Amendment rights in response to any questions that would be put to him.
“Subpoenas are not optional,” panel Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said after Pagliano failed to show up at the second committee hearing he was formally called to in the past two weeks. “Mr. Pagliano is a crucial fact witness in this committee’s investigation former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s of a private email server to conduct government business.”
