Rep. DeSantis: House Hearing on Emails Was 'Devastating' for Hillary, FBI
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) joined Bill Hemmer on "America's Newsroom" today to react to yesterday's House hearing on the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server.
Former State Department staffer Bryan Pagliano ignored a subpoena to appear at the hearing, and two witnesses - Bill Thornton and Paul Combetta - pleaded the Fifth.
DeSantis said it all amounted to a "devastating day" for Clinton and the FBI.
He explained that Combetta, who worked for the company Clinton used to host her private email servers during her time with the State Department, is the individual who wiped Clinton's server and email archive with BleachBit, despite those emails being under subpoena.
"When he's asked, 'Who told you to delete that?' he takes the Fifth Amendment," DeSantis said. "The DOJ actually gave him immunity. We don't know what type of immunity, we don't know how broad the grant was. But when he was talking to them, he invoked attorney-client privilege as the reason not to answer. But it wasn't his privilege. He was invoking it on behalf of Secretary Clinton."
"This whole thing really stinks."
