“Subpoenas are not optional,” said Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).
Are we seriously considering electing as President someone whose underling is not only pleading the fifth touching on his professional relationship with Clinton, but is being found to be IN CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS for his connections to Hillary?
THIS is the woman whose judgement we are implored to trust?
Hillary can play rope-a-dope with the FBI all day long, but Jason Chaffetz isn’t playing around:

On Thursday, a US House committee investigating Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server voted along party lines to hold the Democratic presidential candidate’s former IT aide in contempt of Congress.
Bryan Pagliano, the former State Department IT technician who helped set up Clinton’s private e-mail server when she was secretary of state, did not appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee during its hearing investigating the server. However, Pagliano was subpoenaed.
All the Clintons’ servers: Hillary first used a Power Mac tower for e-mail
“Subpoenas are not optional,” Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said Thursday. “Mr. Pagliano is a crucial fact witness in this committee’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to conduct government business.”
The committee’s resolution, adopted on a party-line vote of 19-15, must be approved by the House. If approved, it would be up to the District of Columbia US attorney to decide whether to prosecute.

If Hillary’s own staff needed immunity, plead the Fifth and are facing Contempt of Congress charges, what does that say about the woman herself?
