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…Explore posts in the same categories: Environ-mental-ism, Obama Sucks, politics
