Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and two other staffers were granted immunity as part of the now-closed FBI probe into the former secretary of state’s email practices, according to a top House Republican who questioned whether the deals hindered the bureau’s ability to build a case.
"This is beyond explanation,” House oversight committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said in a statement Friday. “The FBI was handing out immunity agreements like candy. I've lost confidence in this investigation and I question the genuine effort in which it was carried out.”
Chaffetz first revealed the immunity deals in an interview with The Associated Press, saying “no wonder they couldn't prosecute a case.”
In his statement, Chaffetz said, “Immunity deals should not be a requirement for cooperating with the FBI."

The fact that you have to offer these people immunity to even consider stepping on the stand should scream volumes about what they are involved with behind the scenes.

In all honesty, I think the entire Executive Branch, including those charged with investigating this pay-for-play and private email server business, are protecting themselves.
Cheryl Mills? She's a Big Fish. She is a Mover and Shaker, doing it quietly and behind the scenes....kind of like Valerie Jarrett.

Here’s What Probably Led to Blow Up During Cheryl Mills’ FBI Interview
Thus, it appears as though the Department of Justice agreed to treat Mills as both Clinton’s lawyer and fact witness. Though the FBI has not publicly released a 302 interview form from the Mills interview, we can likely conclude that this unusual treatment of Mills is what lead to the reported walkout during her interview session. It is also what likely led to the reported disagreement between the FBI agents and DOJ lawyers in the room. The situation was odd, to say the least. “The Department of Justice agreement to limit the scope of a criminal interview based on untested claims of attorney-client privilege is, at the very least, unusual,” Coffin writes. “For the more conspiracy minded, it’s downright outrageous.”
