FBI Grants Immunity to Clinton Staffer As Criminal Investigation Heats Up

RNC Communications - March 2, 2016

Two big stories in The Washington Post and The New York Times about how the FBI investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal is just heating up. Here are the key new pieces of information:

  • Bryan Pagliano, the IT employee who set up Clinton’s server and pled the 5th to avoid cooperating with investigators was granted immunity for cooperating, in whatThe Washington Post calls "a sign the FBI investigation into possible criminal wrongdoing is progressing."
  • What the Clinton campaign has called a “security review,” but according to both reports, the FBI investigation has become criminal in nature. One official told The Post “There was wrongdoing.”
  • According to The Times, “F.B.I. agents have sought to compare electronic timestamps on classified sources to figure out whether the aides reviewed the sources and then retyped the information into emails that were sent or forwarded to Mrs. Clinton’s private server.”
  • Both reports said Clinton is likely to be asked to be interviewed by the Bureau in the coming months.
