Hillary Clinton Aide Pleads the Fifth in Deposition…125 Times


Pagliano is far from the only Clinton aide to give eyebrow-raising testimony in defense of their boss. Hillary's former chief of staff, for instance, ended up raising more questions about the Democratic candidate's conduct than answering them when she repeated variations of the phrase “I don't know” 186 times in a deposition of her own:

“Pagliano has invoked his Fifth Amendment rights each time he has been asked about the private server during the past year, with the apparent exception of his conversations with law enforcement agents. He did so during a closed-door hearing before the House Select Committee on Benghazi in September.

The Judicial Watch case began as a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit intended to uncover personnel files for Huma Abedin, the former deputy chief of staff for Clinton. Abedin received a rare ‘special government employee' designation that allowed her to collect simultaneous paychecks from the Clinton Foundation, the State Department and a consulting firm called Teneo Strategies.

But the lawsuit has morphed into one of the leading windows into Clinton's server arrangement, exposing the criminal nature of the FBI probe and the fact that deleted emails from her server are being held as evidence, among other things.”
