Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions today asking Sessions to consider convening a grand jury or bringing charges against Hillary Clinton’s former IT guy, Bryan Pagliano. Pagliano was subpoenaed to testify before the committee last year but refused to appear on two occasions. After the second refusal, the Oversight Committee voted to hold Pagliano in contempt.

Chaffetz’ letter to AG Sessions reads in part, “Because Pagliano’s job functions included supporting mobile computing issues across the Department, he was uniquely positioned to answer questions regarding State Department policies and practices for preserving records, as well as the technological procedures utilized to do so.” The letter concludes, “In light of Pagliano’s contumacious conduct in refusing to testify, the Department should bring the matter before a grand jury for its action or file an information charging Pagliano with violating 2 U.S.C. § 192.”

Pagliano as Pagliacci? Maybe Hillary can start a clown troupe.

   This will be a good early test for AG Sessions Justice Department, he is law and order but I would think Trump would want this to just go away.

Going back to Eisenhower, I don't recall there being an administration without a scandal. I don't think that I would want to press the issue either. We shall see.

Still, it was Trump who brought up Hillary's e-mail today.

It may be that he couldn't do anything with a hostile DOJ running interference for the Hillary camp.
