Hillary Tech Worker Granted Immunity

"Secretary Clinton has been cooperating..."

According to a new report, a Hillary Clinton staffer was granted immunity in the FBI investigation of the Secretary of State's homebrewed email server:

Bryan Pagliano, a tech worker who set up the server inside Clinton’s Chappaqua, NY, home in 2009, is cooperating with the FBI as it wrap ups its probe, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

The FBI is investigating whether any staffers at the State Department had knowledge that classified information was being trafficked through the unsecured network.

Pagliano's cooperation suggests the investigation "is deepening" although there is no evidence a grand jury has been convened.

The Clinton campaign continues to downplay the FBI's investigation: "As we have said since last summer, Secretary Clinton has been cooperating with the Department of Justice’s security inquiry, including offering in August to meet with them to assist their efforts if needed,” Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said.

Clinton suffered another set back in the case last month when a judge ruled that her aides could be questioned under oath as to whether the homebrewed email server was an attempt to avoid federal record-keeping laws.

So far at least 2,079 emails were determined to have classified information in them. Last month, 22 were determined to be "top secret." Clinton only turned over a portion of her emails to the government, so there is no telling what was in the emails that she deleted.

Clinton claims none of the emails were marked as classified at the time she received them.
