Former Clinton Staffer Granted Immunity for Cooperating with FBI

As Hillary Clinton inches closer to the Democratic presidential nomination, the Federal Bureau of Investigation inches closer to a decision whether to file criminal charges in their investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server as Secretary of State.

In a new development, former Clinton staffer and IT specialist, Bryan Pagliano, announced his willingness to cooperate with the FBI concerning his assistance in setting up Clinton’s private email server at her New York home in 2009.

Last year, Pagliano, 31, said he would invoke his Fifth Amendment rights and not testify before the House committee on Benghazi.

Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Clinton's presidential campaign, responded to Pagliano’s decision by stating, “(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.'

With the announcement of Pagliano’s cooperation with the FBI, Fallon told The New York Times the campaign was 'pleased' with his decision.

The FBI’s case began as a security referral from the inspectors general of the State Department and the nation’s intelligence agencies, who were concerned that classified information may have been stored outside a secure government network. But several law enforcement officials said the matter quickly became an investigation into whether anyone had committed a crime in handling classified information.
