Lois Lerner and Solyndra execs took the 5th before Congress and are doing just fine, so the bar of non-accountability has been set. Has anybody in this administration really been held accountable for anything? There’s no reason not to be defiant and just run out the clock:

A former State Department staffer who worked on Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private e-mail server tried this week to fend off a subpoena to testify before Congress, saying he would assert his constitutional right not to answer questions to avoid incriminating himself.

The move by Bryan Pagliano, who had worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009, came in a Monday letter from his lawyer to the House panel investigating the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
[…]
“While we understand that Mr. Pagliano’s response to this subpoena may be controversial in the current political environment, we hope that the members of the Select Committee will respect our client’s right to invoke the protections of the Constitution,” his attorney, Mark MacDougall, wrote.

Two other Senate committees have contacted Pagliano in the past week, according to a copy of the letter, which was obtained by The Washington Post.

But everything Hillary did was totally on the up-and-up — it’s just that her people don’t like to publicly brag about how compliant and transparent she was, or something.

According to the WaPo, Pagliano worked in the IT department at State from May 2009 until February 2013. I’m just guessing he knows that if he wants to work at the White House in 2017 he’ll keep his mouth shut in 2015 and 2016.
