Clinton staffer granted immunity in email probe
Bryan Pagliano, former Hillary Clinton staffer was granted immunity by the FBI and Justice Department. In exchange, he must talk to investigators about the use of private and secret emails by former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
Investigators dealing with the Clinton emails event have wanted to talk to Pagliano for months. Bryan Pagliano was the person in charge of setting up Clinton’s email server. Therefore, he is a very important witness.
Brian Fallon, a Clinton´s campaign spokesperson announced that he is pleased that Pagliano was cooperating with justice. He also added that, "As we have said since last summer, Secretary Clinton has been cooperating with the Justice Department's security inquiry, including offering in August to meet with them to assist their efforts if needed,"
Fallon has already declined to cooperate with the investigation, invoking his Fifth Amendment rights. At that moment, Fallon said, “(Clinton) has encouraged everyone to cooperate because we want to make every good-faith effort to be transparent and answer any questions people have. With Mr. Pagliano, we encouraged him as well because we don't think he has any reason to not be transparent about the help that he provided from an IT perspective, but unfortunately, it is his choice what to do."
Many already know about the Clinton scandal regarding her receiving some emails containing highly sensitive information.
The publicly released emails reveal that Clinton received them. These emails contained highly sensitive government information, top secret, and classified matters. The FBI continues to investigate to decide if this is considered a major crime. They are investigating why Clinton requested a private server, how it was setup, and how many officials knew that Clinton was receiving such emails.
At this point, there has been no comments by the FBI or Pagliano’s attorney, Mark J. MacDougall.
