(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Five people who worked for Hillary Clinton and her 2016 presidential campaign have pleaded the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination when called to testify before Special Counsel John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the Trump–Russia collusion hoax, Breitbart reported.
Legal scholar Jonathan Turley said the witnesses “refused to cooperate in fear that they might incriminate themselves in criminal conduct.”
Another witness, called “Researcher-2,” agreed to testify in exchange for immunity.
“[Durham] is now moving to give immunity to a key witness while revealing that the claims made by the Clinton campaign were viewed by the CIA as “not technically plausible” and “user created,” Turley said.
Durham revealed that Clinton’s employees refused to testify in a recent court filing.
