The FBI are showing signs of losing confidence in Hillary Clinton as investigations into her misuse of a private email server when she was Secretary of State uncover potential criminal activity.
FBI chief, James Comey, has accussed the Presidential candidate of violating laws whilst handling classified government information through her private home server.
The fact that Pagliano received immunity, experts have noted, could signal that a grand jury has already been impaneled, though it depends on the details of the agreement. Those details are presently unclear.
“I’m also told Comey and his team increasingly doubt Clinton’s story,” Gasparino said. “Most officials know private email servers are easier to hack into than secure government servers.
They also know that even documents not labeled ‘classified’ may be top secret.”
“Law-enforcement sources also say Comey’s record as a prosecutor shows he has zero tolerance for such abuses,” Gasparino wrote.
“However, FBI sources say he has no backing from President Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch to recommend charges against the former secretary since a Clinton presidency may be the best chance to preserve the Obama legacy.”
“That leaves Comey in a bind: Does he do what is politically expedient and deny the reality that Clinton’s e-mail server activities violated the law, or follow the evidence to wherever it takes him?” he added.
