The Justice Department has granted immunity to a State Department employee that helped build former secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server, according to the Washington Post.
The new development is not a good sign for the Democratic presidential front-runner, though there is still no indication that any criminal charges will be brought against Clinton.
Sources also told the Post that Clinton will likely be interviewed by agents involved in the FBI’s investigation.
Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said that the former secretary of State has repeatedly offered to assist in the investigation.
“As we have said since last summer, Secretary Clinton has been cooperating with the Department of Justice’s security inquiry, including offering in August to meet with them to assist their efforts if needed,” Fallon said in a statement.
He added that the campaign is “pleased” that Pagliano is assisting with the investigation.
