It looks like Hillary Clinton’s information technology specialist’s ability to claim his Fifth Amendment privilege may be about to come to a close.

A federal judge ordered Bryan Pagliano, the IT technician who set up the former secretary of state’s private email server, to produce the specifics of the immunity agreement he has with the Justice Department, according to The Daily Caller.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, a Bill Clinton appointee who has nonetheless been critical of both the State Department and the former secretary over her email scandal, also indefinitely held over Pagliano’s deposition with Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group.

Sullivan’s order Friday came in response to a motion by Pagliano’s lawyers to prohibit Judicial Watch from video recording its deposition with the IT specialist, during which he has repeatedly invoked his Fifth Amendment right to refuse to answer questions that may tend to incriminate the person being questioned.

The Daily Caller reported:

Limited immunity is a narrower agreement that prevents a witnesses’ words from being used against them. Blanket immunity is a promise not to prosecute at all.
