Operation Restore Hope, Homeland Edition

Otherwise known as "Update: Hillary for Prison, 2016."
A Department of Justice decision to grant immunity to Hillary Clinton’s top IT aide indicates officials are “considering potential criminal charges” against the former secretary of state or her aides, according to a source familiar with the investigation... “Giving him immunity” indicates “they are considering potential criminal charges against people higher up in the chain,” said the source who requested anonymity because he is not authorized to discuss the investigation with reporters.
If you're a Democrat in office who is afraid of Donald Trump, one way you could help derail his train is by proving that the government is not quite as corrupt as everyone has come to believe that it is.

Someone noted on the news shows last night that, if the DOJ were merely going though the motions, they wouldn't be approving and announcing immunity deals. This sounds surprisingly and gratifyingly serious.

A Department of Justice decision to grant immunity to Hillary Clinton’s top IT aide

This is the very move I called for. This IT guy's culpability in doing what the CEO (to put it in business terms) of his organization ordered him to do (likely on pain of losing his job) should never have been the focus of an investigation. Grant him amnesty (also conveniently removing his ability to plead the Fifth) and compel his testimony. The only question remaining then is if external forces (*ahem*) would attempt to compel him to lie about what he had been told to do and what he did. But this is absolutely a needed step in the right direction.

Compel or coerce, I would say. I'll bet there's a cushy job at the Clinton Foundation waiting for an IT professional who keeps faith in spite of being offered immunity.

Hopefully, his immunity would not extend into perjury.

I'd suggest that they need to do this with multiple individuals who may have participated in the server/email set up process and use, or who may have information about those who did, in an effort to set up a "prisoners' dilemma" situation. That might go some way toward avoidance of Clinton-suborned perjury while someone is testifying under an immunity cover.

Of course, it goes without saying that all testimony would have to be kept super-top-secret until all individuals had testified.

At this point in time, it isn't persuasion or coercion people need to worry about, but "accidents" and unknown "disappearances".

Clinton has already used the whole coercion thing in law. Once it gets outside the law, extra judicial solutions begin to make more sense.

After all, Hussein said he was "good at killing people", since he just needs to sign a death warrant and the US hierarchy carries it out, no questions asked. Very different from all the self constraints Bush II put on himself via the court system when obtaining warrants.

Deep Throat, the mastermind behind the manipulation of the media in conducting a bloodless coup against Nixon, had a neat trick for ensuring people could get out of jail.

In the case of Weather Underground, Deep Throat, at the time the FBI's second or vice I believe, ordered an illegal search of the home of said W U members, including Ayers'.

This meant that all the evidence that would have put the surviving members of the WU in jail, such as Ayers, were nullified.

All they have to do is something similar in the DOJ, to nullify the DOJ's own evidence chain. Then the evidence disappears, even though the bomb the WU had was real and did kill people. That didn't matter, Ayers is now boosting for Hussein Obola, a power behind the throne.
