The State Department cannot find Hillary Clinton’s IT guru’s emails
Back in April Bryan Pagliano, the man who set up and maintained the personal email server Hillary Clinton used to conduct all State Department business on, was granted immunity by the Department of Injustice but despite this he is still refusing to testify in front of the Congress on the email scandal.
Now the State Department is claiming, surprise surprise, that it cannot find any of his emails. Here is more:
The State Department said today it can’t find any of Bryan Pagliano’s emails from the time he served as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s senior information technology staffer during her tenure there.
Pagliano would have been required to turn over any official communications from his work account before he left the government. State Department officials say he had an official email account, but that they can’t find any of those records and continue to search for them.
“The Department has searched for Mr. Pagliano’s email pst file and has not located one that covers the time period of Secretary Clinton’s tenure,” State Department spokesman Elizabeth Trudeau said today, referencing a file format that holds email.
“To be clear, the Department does have records related to Mr. Pagliano and we are working with Congress and [Freedom of Information Act] requesters to provide relevant material. The Department has located a pst from Mr. Pagliano’s recent work at the Department as a contractor, but the files are from after Secretary Clinton left the Department,” Trudeau added.
Coincidentally the only emails the State Department has been able to recover just happen to be from after Hillary Clinton left the State Department. It would also appear to me that Bryan Pagliano did not turn over all his emails as required when he left the government, perhaps this is why he is refusing to testify in front of the Congress…
Of course we should take this news with a grain of salt because the State Department has already been caught trying to hide some Benghazi related emails by “mistakenly” sending them to other government agencies even after they were subpoenaed.
Despite this obvious attempt to stonewall the investigation Hillary Clinton’s allies are blasting the Congress for dragging out the investigation. And sadly they will probably get away with this charade…
