Joel Benenson Says Cheryl Mills Receiving Immunity Was Routine

The chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Joel Benenson, appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to discuss the state of the race. Wallace asked Benenson about Clinton’s former chief of staff and current legal counsel Cheryl Mills receiving immunity from the FBI regarding Clinton’s email practices.

Benenson told Wallace that this was, “fairly appropriate and routine when people are sitting down with them, turning over a wealth of materials that have nothing to do with the investigation at hand.”

Wallace pressed Benenson on that statement, saying that what Mills was handing over was information related to the investigation, and that the FBI had not offered her immunity but rather Mills had asked for it.
