Former State Department Employee Dodges House Hearing on Clinton Emails

A former IT aide to Hillary Clinton skips a House hearing looking at the former Secretary of State’s email server.

FOX’s Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:

The former State Department computer expert who set up Hillary Clinton’s email server was a no-show at the House Oversight Committee, despite a subpoena from Republican chairman Jason Chaffetz:

(Chaffetz) “When you are served a subpoena from the United States Congress it is not optional.”

Two employees of Platte River Networks, the company that later maintained Clinton’s server and deleted data, were dismissed after asserting their Fifth Amendment rights.

Top committee Democrat Elijah Cummings says the hearing is a political stunt:

(Cummings) “The FBI already investigated these accusations and thoroughly debunked them.”

The Committee did get answers from a former aide to President Bill Clinton, who first purchased a server used by Hillary Clinton
