Pagliano to Take the Fifth

http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/281925-clinton-it-aide-to-plead-fifth-in-email-case

The man believed to have set up and maintained Hillary Clinton’s private email server will assert his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination and refuse to answer questions as part of an open records lawsuit against the State Department.

Bryan Pagliano will decline to answer questions from Judicial Watch, the conservative legal watchdog group, during a deposition scheduled for Monday, his lawyers wrote in a court filing on Wednesday afternoon.

1. I thought he had been given immunity

 

He can't plead the fifth if he has immunity.

4. That's the thing, my understanding is if it is covered by immunity, he can't plead the fifth

 

Unless they are asking something not covered by the immunity agreement

6. With immunity

he is covered no matter what he says right? Maybe there are still things that can happen to him? If the government gives him immunity and he still does not spill then he is obviously afraid of someone else.

I only half way watch this, I am interested in other things as well and have not spent the time on the details of all of this. Is this the FBI? Were they the people who gave him immunity or was that another group?

I find it very odd. Will wait to learn more.

9. It's a civil suit

He was given criminal immunity.

2. I guess that this is an admission of guilt.

 

Why else would he plead the fifth?

5. I think...

he has already spoken to the FBI. I think this is a move to keep testimony private for as long as possible. Could there be a reason for that? I think so.

8. In addition

on another site, we have been discussing this and one of the attorneys there mentioned that it could have been a part of the Immunity deal made with the FBI as well. In any case, any employee of Sec Clinton's pleading the fifth is seriously bad for her. The damning IG report was the beginning. I think we are seeing this coming to a head with the FBI, several of the articles I have read over the last week suggest that could be the case.

10. 5th Amendment and lawyer backing him == crimes were committed.

 

And she's the presumptive nominee. The party may be doomed.
