Bryan Pagliano is an IT aide to Hillary Clinton. Pagliano worked as the technology chief for her political action committee and her 2016 presidential campaign. Pagliano set up, maintained, and monitored Hillary Clinton's illegal off-site server in Chappaqua, New York.
In May 2009, Undersecretary of State Patrick F. Kennedy landed a job for Pagliano as a political employee in the State Department's IT division. It was an unusual. Officials in the IT division have told investigators they could not recall previously hiring a political appointee. Three of Pagliano’s supervisors also told investigators they had no idea that Clinton used the basement server or that Pagliano was at the same time maintaining it.
Pagliano refused requests from the Senate Judiciary and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committees to discuss his role. On Sept. 1, 2015, his attorney told the committees that he would invoke his Fifth Amendment rights if any attempt was made to compel his testimony.
Pagliano was later given immunity by the Justice Department.
