In a shocking turn of events, the State Department that was once headed by Hillary Clinton has reported that the State Department seems to have lost the emails that would implicate the State Department in any federal crimes during Secretary Clinton’s time at the State Department.
Bryan Pagliano, who is said to have set up Clinton’s private email server, agreed to an immunity deal if he would give up information about dealings with Clinton’s servers. One person within the investigation said that Pagliano would prove to be a “devastating witness.”
But now, mysteriously, the state department says it can’t find Pagliano’s emails around the time that he served Clinton as her tech staffer. Neat.
Of course, no one is buying it, especially the RNC. As reported by the Chicago Tribune:
‘Raj Shah, the RNC spokesman, added, “It’s hard to believe that an IT staffer who set up Hillary Clinton’s reckless email server never sent or received a single work-related email in the four years he worked at the State Department.” Clinton’s campaign officials declined to comment in response to questions from The Associated Press.’
Whether the State Department is actively keeping the information from investigators to protect Clinton, or doing so to protect themselves, or both, it can’t yet be determined. Regardless, the fact that the guy who set up her the server in question had mysteriously had his emails vanish like a Houdini act is highly suspicious.
According to ABC news,
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 he would have turned over and continue to search for them.
If Pagliano is as devastating a witness as he was touted to be, then this disappearance of his comms with Clinton must be damning indeed. Of course, this could be wishful thinking on my part, but that the State Department is suddenly all Hans Schultz doesn’t lend any confidence to their innocence.
