Now we're getting a better glimpse at why he might be pleading the 5th.... Here's some pull outs from the article....
Bryan Pagliano had served as the IT director of Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and then worked for her political action committee.
The private employment of Pagliano provides a new example of the ways that Clinton — who occupied a unique role as a Cabinet secretary who was also a former and potentially future presidential candidate — hired staff to work simultaneously for her in public and private capacities.
The Clintons paid Pagliano $5,000 for “computer services” prior to his joining the State Department.
But even after arriving at State in May 2009, Pagliano continued to be paid by the Clintons to maintain the server.
The private pay arrangement has not previously been reported. The State Department has declined to answer questions about whether the private system was widely known within the agency or officially approved.
Federal regulations allow employees at Pagliano’s level to have outside employment but require that the extra income not exceed 15 percent of their government salary. Employees must also ensure that their outside work not create a conflict of interest with their government job.
Pagliano did not list the outside income in the required personal financial disclosures he filed each year. The State Department has said Pagliano concluded his full-time service in February 2013, which coincides with Clinton’s departure as secretary.
And here's the clincher......
Lawmakers interested in hearing Pagliano’s account of the server’s setup and security protocols are considering whether to offer him immunity in exchange for his testimony. If they take the step, Pagliano would be compelled to appear.
And there LOTS MORE!!!!!!!!!!!
