Clinton State Department staffer Bryan Pagliano, who set up Hillary Clinton’s infamous server at the Chappaqua, New York home in 2009 has been given immunity by the FBI.
Rick Wells reports FBI Investigators Made A Deal For Inside Email And Server Information
Hillary Clinton continues to make her claims that there’s nothing to this whole espionage violation stuff, arguments which are in the process of becoming increasingly weaker by the day as the FBI continues their investigation. One reason Mrs. Clinton’s position is worsening considerably is the granting by the FBI of immunity to Bryan Pagliano.
He’s a former Clinton State Department staffer who set up Hillary Clinton’s infamous server at the Chappaqua, New York home in 2009 and handled its security. Pagliano had previously worked for Clinton as the IT manager for her failed 2008 presidential campaign.
Pagliano was subpoenaed by the Benghazi Select Committee in September of last year but refused to testify, citing his Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination. His attorney acknowledged at the time that the “current political environment” made it controversial for him to invoke the Fifth Amendment, but that is what he did. He must have had a good reason.
Whatever that good reason was has now evaporated with the granting of immunity. Removing the threat of prosecution removes the basis for any refusal to answer and indications are that he is now cooperating with investigators.
Although Pagliano worked as the State Department, he was paid personally by Clinton for his work on the server which contained government information. He’s very fortunate that the FBI offered him the deal that they did. He was likely in some serious personal jeopardy as well.
The first video below is from a report at the time that Pagliano initially declined to testify. The second one is an extremely good timeline and accounting of the case against Hillary Clinton and why she has every reason to be very concerned.
