State Dept says it has no emails from ex-Clinton staffer

This portion of an email from Hillary Rodham Clinton's private email account when she was secretary of state and released by the State Department on Sept. 30, 2015, shows an email Clinton received early in the morning on Aug. 3, 2011. The newly released emails show Russia-linked hackers tried at least five times to pry into Clinton's private email account while she was secretary of state. It is unclear if she clicked on any attachment and exposed her account. Clinton received the infected emails, disguised as speeding tickets, over four hours early the morning of Aug. 3, 2011. The emails instructed recipients to print the attached tickets, which would have allowed hackers to take control of their computers. Security researchers who analyzed the malicious software have said that infected computers would transmit information from victims to at least three server computers overseas, including one in Russia.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The State Department says in a new court filing that it can find no emails to or from a former Hillary Clinton aide who worked for the agency and also managed Clinton’s private computer server during her stint as secretary of state.

The revelation was in a filing Monday by government lawyers for the department in a response to a lawsuit by the Republican National Committee. The GOP group had sued over its public records request for all work-related emails sent to or received by Clinton’s former aide, Bryan Pagliano, between 2009 and 2013, covering most of Clinton’s tenure.

Pagliano was offered immunity by the Justice Department in its continuing investigation into Clinton’s server and emails and whether they violated national security laws.
