Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI, is seeking immunity in order to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to documents released Tuesday.
“This is a textbook case for granting use immunity,” Michael Bromwich, an attorney for McCabe, wrote Monday in a letter to Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the chairman of the judiciary panel.
“Mr. McCabe is willing to testify, but because of the criminal referral, he must be afforded suitable legal protection,” Bromwich said. “Accordingly, we hereby request that the Judiciary Committee authorize a grant of use immunity to Mr. McCabe.”
Grassley invited McCabe and other FBI officials to a hearing tentatively scheduled for July after the expected release of a Justice Department inspector general’s report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

No! He should be required to testify and if he refuses be charged for all criminal activity he was involved in. He was a federal officer and as such has no valid reason to demand any privilege to include immunity. He should, if facts indicate a need, be given protection while waiting his time in front of any court or committee. We know the Clintons are not above eliminating anyone who might be a threat to their immense need for power and sexual favors, so there could be reason for protection.
Ratz always flee a sinking ship~enuf said ’bout dat!
Instead of complete immunity, if I was in charge, I might allow a suspect to have his jail time cut in half for his testimony only if the testimony is instrumental in the convection of the the subject. Never let a criminal off, that is not justice.
He should not get immunity he should have a trial if found guilty to jail and the tax payers should not have to pay him nothing for retirement. If convicted he is a crook and tax payers should be protected not the crook. This is the only way to clean up Washington. Mueller should have been fired for what he did in Boston when he was head of the FBI. If he was in private practice he would have been fired and I doubt if he would even have his license to practice law.
