Chaffetz Seeks Charges Against Clinton Aide

BY MATTHEW DALY
ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, who has refused Democratic requests to investigate possible conflicts of interest involving President Donald Trump, is seeking criminal charges against a former State Department employee who helped set up Hillary Clinton's private email server.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday asking him to convene a grand jury or charge Bryan Pagliano, the computer specialist who helped establish Clinton's server while she was secretary of state.

Pagliano did not comply with two subpoenas ordering him to appear before the oversight panel. The GOP-led committee later voted to hold him in contempt of Congress.

Earlier this month, Chaffetz met with Trump at the White House and agreed not to discuss oversight. He has rebuffed calls for his panel to look into Trump's businesses and possible conflicts.

1. It's likely - especially after that rant and rave fest - Hillary will be targeted again.

The campaign has never ended - the media is FAKE and "dishonest," Hillary and the Democrats are sore losers, Obama people are undermining the government and "leaking" - all "Putin Russia-style" attacks.

Appearing to pursue "Lock Her Up!" again is a base fantasy come true. It's a hole card they always had to play.

Distraction, distraction, distraction!

5. Chaffetz himself took part in a criminal conspiracy when he violated the Hatch Act by joining forces

with Jim Comey to rig the election.
