Gowdy: Looks Like FBI Gave Immunity to 'Triggerman' Who Deleted Hillary's Emails
We're learning this morning that the IT specialist who deleted Hillary Clinton's emails from her private server was granted immunity by the Justice Department.
According to the New York Times report, the immunity deal was made with Paul Combetta, who worked for a Colorado company called Platte River Networks, a private firm that managed the server.
Republicans are pressing for an investigation into whether Clinton's emails were deleted despite an order from Congress for the materials to be preserved.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, reacted on America's Newsroom, explaining that there are two types of immunity Combetta could have received: use and transactional.
"If the FBI and the Department of Justice gave this witness transactional immunity, it is tantamount to giving the triggerman immunity in a robbery case," said Gowdy, adding that he was "stunned" by the new report.
Gowdy said Combetta "destroyed official public records" despite a subpoena and preservation order from lawmakers for the documents.
"It looks like they gave immunity to the very person you would most want to prosecute," the former federal prosecutor said.
