Last week, Clinton’s IT aid who helped setup her private email server, Bryan Pagliano, apparently decided that Congressional subpoenas, like federal record retention laws, were merely optional suggestions that did not require compliance. As such, Pagliano elected to skip last Tuesday’s Congressional hearing in front of the House Oversight Committee regarding Hillary’s email scandal.

That said, Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), Chair of the House Oversight Committee, seems to be under the “illusion” that Congressional subpoenas are not optional at all and, as such, has voted to hold Pagliano in contempt of Congress. According to The Hill, the Committee even had Pagliano served by armed U.S. Marshalls as an optical gesture to show they mean business.

“Subpoenas are not optional,” Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said Thursday. “Mr. Pagliano is a crucial fact witness in this committee’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to conduct government business.”

The committee asked Pagliano be served by U.S. Marshals, according to both Cummings and Chaffetz. Chaffetz argued that the move was intended to prevent ambiguity, while Cummings characterized the move as harassment.
