Solyndra Executives to Plead the 5th During Congressional Hearing

Hm…  If you have nothing to hide, there’s no reason to plead the 5th.  Come to think of it, the only guys who seem to be notorious for pleading the 5th during congressional hearings are mob bosses and communists.   How apropos:

Solyndra execs will decline to testify at hearing

Sept 20 (Reuters) – Solyndra LLC’s chief executive and chief financial officer will invoke their Fifth Amendment rights and decline to answer any questions put to them at a Congressional hearing on Friday, according to letters from their attorneys obtained by Reuters.

In the letters sent to the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, attorneys for Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison and CFO W. G. Stover said they advised their clients not to provide testimony during the hearings.

The bankrupt company’s $535 million federal loan guarantee is being investigated by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Harrison is represented by Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe and Stover is represented by Keker & Van Nest.

Solyndra’s offices were raided by the FBI two days after the company filed for bankruptcy, although the FBI did not say what prompted the raid.

I’ll tell you what I think prompted the FBI raid:  Obama and his cronies in the Justice Department who are desperately trying to keep any incriminating documents away from Darrell Issa…

    Democrats loan stolen money to hoaxters. Hoaxsters refuse to answer any questions regarding that money as any answers might tend to incriminate them. A stampede of Democrats lawyers rush to the aid of the democrat hoaxsters. This is democrat policy, a win for every democrat, a loss for the rest of us and our country. Democrats are the mob, the repubs are their corrupt and bought off political enablers.

    The climate control hoax is almost as bad as the phony war our leaders are waging against the global islamic jihad. Think of all the science that has not been discovered as a result of this gigantic hoax? We can never get those years back. The same thing goes with the phony war but I suppose that we could call all of it, the phony wars. I am beginning to think that 9-11 has driven these so called leaders barking mad. Insane and dangerous to all of us and yes, the entire civilized world as well.

    The shredders inside the beltway are working overtime, the administration of our ‘Dear Leader’ is in full damage control mode. Let’s see if they can talk their way out of this one.
