ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential hopeful and former business executive Carly Fiorina said on Sunday she doesn't think it is "plausible" that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton did not pay close attention to the private server installed in her basement. Clinton had said on Saturday she and her family paid a State Department staffer with personal funds to maintain a private email server that she used for both personal and government matters while secretary of state. The Democratic presidential front-runner has been dogged by questions over her use of the unsecured server to conduct government business when she was the top U.S. diplomat as well as for how she handled classified information. "It takes a lot of work to install a private server system in your basement... And so I don't think it's plausible for her to say 'oh I wasn't paying it any attention'. She clearly was paying attention," Fiorina told the CBS news program Face the Nation. After a campaign appearance in New Hampshire, Clinton told reporters the payments went to information technology specialist Bryan Pagliano, who this week declined to produce documents and testify before a U.S. House of Representatives committee about the server, invoking his constitutional right against self-incrimination. Fiorina garnered less than 1 percent of support in a Reuters/Ipsos poll of the Republican field earlier this summer. But the former Hewlett-Packard Co chief executive has seen a surge in support since the first Republican debate and may very well poll within the the top ten GOP candidates in time for a September 16 prime time debate.
