Clinton says family paid State Dept employee for email work

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) -

Hillary Rodham Clinton says her family paid a State Department employee to maintain the private email server she used while secretary of state.
    
She says Bryan Pagliano continued to receive payment for his technical service "for a period of time."
    
Pagliano has told a House committee investigating 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 with reporters Saturday after a campaign evening in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
    
Clinton says "we obviously paid for those services and did so because during a period of time we continued to need his technical assistance."
    
She's said she set up her own system because of the convenience of using a single hand-held device.
