The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s private email server just took a very significant turn, legally speaking. As The Washington Post first reported, the U.S. Department of Justice (likely through a federal judge) granted immunity to Clinton’s aide Bryan Pagliano who helped set-up her privately maintained email server. We checked in with our legal sources from former federal prosecutors (both Republicans and Democrats) to Washington D.C. insiders, most agree that the immunity deal is a serious step in the FBI’s investigation for several reasons.
1) The move could be an indication that investigators are focusing in on more higher ranking individuals
2) The FBI may be zeroing in on the motive behind why Clinton’s email server was set up in the first place. Pagliano would know, he set it up.
