    James Comey’s Clinton Immunity

    James Comey?s Clinton Immunity - WSJ
    FBI Director James Comey appears Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee, where he’ll get another chance to explain his agency’s double standard regarding Hillary Clinton. His probe of the former Secretary of State’s private email server is looking more like a kid-glove exercise with each new revelation.
    House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz on Friday disclosed that the FBI granted immunity to Mrs. Clinton’s top aides as part of its probe into whether Mrs. Clinton mishandled classified information. According to Mr. Chaffetz, this “limited” immunity was extended to former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and senior adviser Heather Samuelson, in order to get them to surrender their laptops, which they’d used to sort through Mrs. Clinton’s work-versus-personal emails.
    Why the courtesy? “If the FBI wanted any other Americans’ laptops, they would just go get them—they wouldn’t get an immunity deal,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told Politico. He’s right. The FBI merely had to seek a subpoena or search warrant. By offering immunity, the FBI exempted the laptops and their emails as potential evidence in a criminal case.
    Beth Wilkinson, who represents Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson, says the immunity deals were designed to protect her clients against any related “classification” disputes. This is an admission that both women knew their unsecure laptops had been holding sensitive information for more than a year. Meanwhile, Mr. Comey also allowed Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson to serve as lawyers for Mrs. Clinton at her FBI interview—despite having been interviewed as witnesses and offered immunity.
    So why was the FBI giving out immunity so freely? They got nothing in return for it. And why was Cheryl Mills, a material witness, allowed to serve as an attorney for Clinton?

    Interesting question.

    If the FBI wasn't going to prosecute why would they give out immunity which is extremely rare.

    My mind is going back to Hoover days and leverage.

    They don't even bother hiding their corruption. They know the Obama Administration is shameless enough to let them get away with it and that there are plenty of loyal minions across the country who will rationalize away.

    Yeah, its really bad. Hillary should have been gone a long time ago but she's protected.

    This is so beyond obvious its ridiculous.
