In a startling revelation, Platte River Networks (PRN), the Denver tech firm that worked on Hillary Clinton's email server charged the presidential candidate $250 an hour for interviews its employee gave to the FBI, the Daily Caller reported.

An invoice raised by the tech company, which had been submitted to Clinton's accounting firm, Marcum LLC. in September 2015, carried details that the payment was sought for interviews that PRN employee Paul Combetta gave to the FBI, the report said.

According to the invoice, which was obtained by the website Complete Colorado last year, the firm charged $3,000 for 12 hours worth of work for Combetta. The invoice also included charges for "federal interviews" and "travel back east."

Other detailed entries on the invoice include: $1,750 in charges for seven hours of work and $1,250 charge for Combetta's five hour flight to Denver.

Combetta came into the limelight after he was granted immunity by the Justice Department in exchange for his cooperation with the federal investigation into Clinton's email server, The New York Times reported last week.

Politico reported last November that federal investigators interviewed the PRN employee in September. A PRN spokesperson informed that complete information had been shared with the FBI. "We as a company have felt like we have done everything we can to comply with every request by both the FBI and the Homeland Security Committee, and we really have nothing left to give," spokesman Andy Boian said.

Platte River Networks, which had been hired to host the Clinton family's email server four months after Hillary Clinton left her secretary of state post, earlier said it fully cooperated with the FBI and other government agencies during the investigation.

"The FBI found neither any misconduct nor any security breach," Platte's attorney Kenneth Eichner told The Denver Post in August.

The FBI also said they won't recommend criminal charges against the Democratic Presidential candidate.

Whether Clinton has cleared the PRN invoice is still unknown, questions have been raised about Combetta's cooperation with the investigating team while the Clinton's were paying for his time, travel and legal assistance.
