FBI gave top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills immunity in email probe, rep says | 23 Sept 2016 | 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 numerous deals hindered the bureau's ability to build a case.

I've lost confidence in this investigation and I question the genuine effort in which it was carried out." The arrangements detailed by Chaffetz bring the total number of publicly known immunity deals in the Clinton case to five.
