Hillary Clinton's family paid State Dept employee for email work

Hillary Clinton has said her family paid a State Department employee to maintain the private email server she used while secretary of state.

She said Bryan Pagliano continued to receive payment for his technical service “for a period of time”.

Mr Pagliano has told a House committee investigating Mrs Clinton’s use of the email server that he would invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if called to testify.

The Democratic front-runner for president addressed the email issue when she spoke to reporters after a campaign evening in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Mrs Clinton said “we obviously paid for those services and did so because during a period of time we continued to need his technical assistance.”

She said she set up her own system because of the convenience of using a single hand-held device.
