Clinton Tech Aide Asks Court To Keep Immunity Deal Secret

By JOSH GERSTEIN 06/07/16 03:45 PM EDT

A former technology adviser to Hillary Clinton appears to be seeking to keep under wraps an immunity deal the aide reportedly reached with the Justice Department in its investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state.

A lawyer for Bryan Pagliano submitted a sealed motion and exhibits to U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan Tuesday afternoon, less than two hours before the 5 p.m. deadline Sullivan set for the filing of Pagliano's immunity agreement.

The docket entry reflecting the filing does not say specifically what documents were lodged with the court, describing them solely as a "sealed motion for leave to file document under seal" and two exhibits.

Pagliano was scheduled to be deposed on Monday in a Freedom of Information Act suit a conservative group, Judicial Watch, is pursuing over Clinton's email set-up.

However, Sullivan postponed the deposition after Pagliano's lawyers indicated the former tech aide planned to assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. In the judge's order delaying the testimony, he ordered Pagliano to file a legal explanation justifying his planned assertion as well as a copy of an immunity agreement under which the former Clinton aide reportedly gave testimony to the FBI about his role in the private server arrangement.

1. And again I ask, WTF is he afraid of?

It can't be the gummint, they've already immunized him. But he's obviously terrified of testifying in this FOIA case.

3. Likely the FBI doesn't want him testifying

 

The FBI's criminal investigation trumps the FOIA civil suit. The last thing the FBI wants is Pagliano testifying in the civil suit and giving either Clinton or her aides a chance to see what the FBI has on them.

5. Or, maybe it isn't the FBI he's afraid of

The presidency of the United States is literally at stake depending on how much information about this case gets into the public domain.

Mr Magliano should probably avoid small airplanes.

6. He'd be better off testifying if that was the case

 

Once he testified there would be no real point in killing him.

And no, I don't particularly believe he would be murdered to shut him up.

4. Apparently it's limited immunity.

And I suppose details of the immunity could shed light on the investigation.
