Congress has questions about 2nd immunity agreement in Clinton email scandal

Byron York:
Many observers were surprised to learn, in a New York Times report, that the contractor who destroyed Hillary Clinton's emails while they were under a congressional subpoena received immunity from the Justice Department — and then still refused to answer some questions from the FBI. The surprised included the top two Clinton email investigators in Congress, Reps. Trey Gowdy and Jason Chaffetz, who have both pored over the Clinton materials the FBI handed over to lawmakers.

It was news to them. Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, had no idea until the Times learned it. Same for Gowdy, head of the Benghazi committee.

"If there is a reason to withhold the immunity agreement from Congress — and by extension, the people we represent — I cannot think of what it would be," Gowdy said in a statement. "I look forward to asking the Bureau about any witnesses who were granted immunity or claimed a privilege preventing them from answering questions."
...
There is more.

A hearing is scheduled for this evening to question FBI officials about the immunity agreement and other aspects of the case.  The fact that the second witness still refused to answer questions after being granted immunity appears unusual to me.  Why he was granted immunity in the first place is also a question that should be basked.
