    Hillary Clinton’s email troubles just keep getting weirder and
    weirder -- and harder for anyone but the most die-hard Clinton
    fans to ignore.

    The latest twist is news that four years’ worth of State
    Department emails from Clinton’s top IT staffer, Bryan Pagliano,
    can’t be found.

    “The Department has searched for Mr. Pagliano’s email pst file
    and has not located one that covers the time period of Secretary
    Clinton’s tenure,” said State’s Elizabeth Trudeau.

    State was, however, able to find Pagliano emails for his “recent
    work at the Department as a contractor, but the files are from
    after Secretary Clinton left the Department.”

    In other words, only those emails he sent after Clinton left
    State can be found. How convenient.

    Pagliano, for those following the story, has been granted
    immunity for his testimony about how he set up Clinton’s private
    email server in her home, which she used exclusively to conduct
    State Department business. He is, in other words, a key witness
    in what could end up being a criminal case.

    The missing emails came to light as the result of a Republican
    National Committee Freedom of Information Act request -- not,
    it’s worth noting, from any mainstream media outlet -- which
    asked for Pagliano’s emails along with Clinton’s Blackberry
    Messenger communication.

    “It’s hard to believe that an IT staffer who set up Hillary
    Clinton’s reckless email server never sent or received a single
    work-related email in the four years he worked at the State
    Department,” RNC spokesman Raj Shah told The Daily Beast. “Such
    records might shed light on his role in setting up Clinton’s
    server, and why he was granted immunity by the FBI.”

    If this were some lone bureaucratic hiccup, it would be highly
    suspicious, given the nature of the investigation. But this fits
    into a broader pattern by Clinton and the Obama administration
    of stonewalling investigations, to say nothing of emails central
    to an investigation mysteriously disappearing. (Remember Lois
    Lerner’s “lost” IRS emails, which she claimed were destroyed
    when her hard drive suddenly crashed?)

    This kind of behavior would normally light a fire under law
    enforcement -- and the press -- since these things usually smack
    of a cover-up.

    But the mainstream press is asleep at the switch -- just check
    out the softball questions John Dickerson lobbed at Clinton on
    "Face the Nation." Everyone seems to expect the FBI and/or
    Justice Department to dismiss the Clinton email scandal as much
    ado about nothing.

    And we’re supposed to wonder why people are cynical about
    government and don’t trust the press?
