WASHINGTON (UPI) -- Bryan Pagliano, the former aide to Hillary Clinton who helped set up the server that held the former Secretary of State's private email accounts, will invoke his Fifth Amendment right during a congressional committee.
What do you mean, "did I wipe my server? Like, with a cloth?"
Pagliano's been called to testify before one House and two Senate committees. The development is interesting in view of the fact that these are not criminal cases as yet:
A portion of the Fifth Amendment states that no person "shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself."
So it doesn't seem as though the 5th would be applicable - unless Bryan believes that his testimony might be deployed against him in some upcoming criminal proceeding. And as has been discussed here previously, the FBI is currently pursuing a criminal investigation into Granny's servers with an eye as to whether or not she violated the Espionage Act, which would be a felony.
