FOX News: Comey firing could spur new review of Clinton case, immunity deals, ex-agent says

President Trump’s decision to fire James Comey touched off widespread speculation in Washington over what will happen to the FBI’s Russia meddling probe – but the prospect of new leadership at the bureau also could hold implications for the ‘closed’ Hillary Clinton email case.

Brian Weidner, a veteran former FBI agent, suggested both the case and the immunity deals struck during that investigation could be revisited.

"I would be surprised if they did not review all the investigations regarding HRC and come up with [a] conclusion regarding prosecution. The statute of limitations hasn't come into play yet," he said in an email to Fox News.

As for the immunity deals struck with key players in the Clinton orbit, he noted those deals are “with the government, so in theory it wouldn't change.”

WNU Editor: With what is happening in Washington today .... anything is possible. But what I think is sending a chill among many from the former administration is that I suspect that a new FBI Director will (unlike former FBI Director Comey) pursue who was responsible for all the intelligence leaks that occurred from December 2016 to February of this year. My gut is telling me that this has the potential of becoming a huge story ..... as well as naming those who ordered all the unmasking of names from intelligence intercepts .... and why.

The anger behind Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday had been building for months, but a turning point came when Comey refused to preview for top Trump aides his planned testimony to a Senate panel, White House officials said.

Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had wanted a heads-up from Comey about what he would say at a May 3 hearing about his handling of an investigation into former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.
