The former Hillary Clinton aide who helped set up her private computer server plans to invoke the Fifth Amendment in response to a congressional hearing about her email practices, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. Bryan Pagliano was reportedly subpoenaed to testify before a House committee, but a lawyer told the panel the former aide would invoke his Fifth Amendment right. The House panel is investigating the Democratic presidential candidate’s use of a private email account while she was secretary of state as a part of its inquiry into the 2012 attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Pagliano served as technology director for Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and worked at the State Department as an adviser and special projects manager. The FBI is looking into how classified information was handled in Clinton’s use of the account, but no evidence suggests Pagliano was involved with sensitive information.
