Computer technicians invoke right not to testify on Clinton’s deleted archive

Three computer experts responsible for setting up, operating and conducting maintenance of the e-mail server in Hillary Clinton's house when she served as secretary of state have refused to testify before a House of Representatives committee looking into the deletion of the e-mails. The FBI said in a report on its investigation of Clinton's use of the server that a technician deleted an archive of e-mails in March 2015 after a House committee looking into the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi subpoenaed records concerning the incident. 
One of the experts did not appear before the committee even though he received immunity from prosecution. The two others did not answer any questions, invoking their constitutional right to maintain silent. The chairman of the committee, Republican Sen. Jason Chaffetz, said on his way out of the hearing that he would seek prosecution of the technician who did not attend, and that he would take action for the publication of the e-mails that both the FBI and Clinton herself claim are not classified.
