The State Dept staffer who was in charge of IT matters during the time of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, John Bentel, has refused to answer questions from Congress. Bentel managed IT security issues for top staffers in the State Dept. Now he is stiff arming two committees, the Senate Judiciary and Homeland Security committees. He claims that the questions he answered before the Benghazi Committee are sufficient and he does not need to do it again. The point being that these are different committees with a compelling interest that is not the same as with the Benghazi Committee. So the ranks continue to close up to protect Hillary Clinton for her highly questionable treatment of items of highest national security. What steps will the committees take to require testimony? It waits to be seen.
