Emails Surface Between Hillary Clinton, Bryan Pagliano — Which She Did ‘Not Recall’ Under Oath

Brian Fallon

Hillary Clinton certainly had conversations with Bryan Pagliano, contradicting a statement she made under oath that she “does not recall” talking to him about managing the unsecured private email server she used to conduct all her business as Secretary of State.

Clinton talked to Pagliano — the IT staffer who pleaded the Fifth Amendment in the FBI investigation of her handling of classified materials — urgently about Blackberry trouble, according to new emails obtained by Judicial Watch.

When asked by Judicial Watch under oath to “identify all communications between you and Brian Pagliano” about the email server, Clinton dodged the request with a claim that she could not remember any such communications.

“Secretary Clinton states that she does not recall having communications with Bryan Pagliano concerning or relating to the management, preservation, deletion, or destruction of any e-mails in her email account,” according to Clinton’s sworn testimony, which includes multiple objections in that answer alone.

These messages also join the pile of work-related emails that Clinton failed to turn over to the Department of State to comply with federal records-keeping laws — contradicting Clinton’s insistence that any emails she failed to produce were personal in nature.

Once again, I’m having BB trouble. I am not receiving emails although people are getting ones I send but I get their replies on my IP. I’ve taken out the battery and done what I know to do but with no luck yet any ideas?

Let me take a look at the server to see if it offers any insight. iPhone is not much different from iPad, however in both cases the security landscape is different from the blackberry.

Thanks again. I’m back in business.

Pagliano is accused of setting up Clinton’s secret email server, on the orders of Huma Abedin. The server was stored in upstate Chappaqua, according to most versions of the story. But in reality, it was sharing server space with the Clinton Foundation’s server in an office in New York City.

Clinton’s Blackberry and unsecured email server put U.S. intelligence at risk of exposure to foreign agents. In December 2010, her IT employees shut down security features on the server, causing top aide Huma Abedin to warn her colleagues, “Don’t email hrc (Clinton) anything sensitive. I can explain more in person.” The next month, an IT employee told Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff that he shut down the server — twice in one day — because “someone was trying to hack us.” She ignored a State Department warning telling her about a security “vulnerability” on an East Asia trip. Clinton admitted that the Chinese regularly attempted to hack her Blackberry, according to excerpts of her paid private speeches seen in Wikileaks’ release of emails from John Podesta.
