WASHINGTON (KGO) -- Two top executives at bankrupt Solyndra have invoked their Fifth Amendment rights and refused to answer questions at a House hearing Friday.
The Solyndra executives have sent letters to the House Energy and Commerce committee, saying they will invoke their Fifth Amendment right to remain silent.

Maybe they thought they’d try this tactic because it worked so well for G. Gordon Liddy back in the 1970s.
The REPUBs should calculate how many taxpayers we have in the US and then calculate how that 500 million plus would distribute back to those hwo were forced to give that money. and keep hammering how each taxpayer should get back ...$ from that terrible RAT-driven company-government deal.
Simply put, they owe us.
The New York Times article on this is good.(shocking as it may be)
Names to watch with dirty hands...Pelosi and Jarrett.
popcorn futures are one of the few things up in the market this week ;-)
Back in the days when there was more character and honor of party and country; people resigned but not Obama radical thugs.They will plead the fifth and ruin the country they don’t care.They are seemingly above the law with the DOJ protecting them and not this country.
Do you have a link? Thanks.
Let’s be fair. Regardless of what this Committee needs and deserves to know, these two men are facing possible criminal indictments, not to mention being scapegoated by the Regime and DOE. The FBI just raided their offices and carried off anything and everything that they thought pertained to the case so these two men do not even have access to their own records.
Like it or not, the 5th Amendment exists for exactly this purpose, and since neither of these men have been charged with, tried for, or convicted of any charge whatsoever, and all we know about this case for certain is what the Media has reported about it, and since there is little if any factual evidence even available at this point, these two men are entitled to plead the 5th, and would in fact be insane not to do so.
There are somewhere around 140 million taxpayers in the USA.
A real number is difficult to determine because so many who file don't actually owe taxes in a given year and quite a large number actually get money from the EOTC.
So the cost to each real taxpayer might be about $4.00 each.
Yes but you are basing your assessment on the mere fact that the FBI is acting non biased and not for Obama.How are we to know docs were not destroyed to cover up?Fast and Furious has shown a lot of departmental corruption.
You’re sadly so correct.look at fast and furious.What do you do when you are a whistle blower seeking a witness protection program from the same department (s) that runs it?
Sorry, should have included it..
I agree with you, I would never testify before a congressional investigation hearing. Who in their right mind would. In fact, I would never testify before any investigation without the advise of an attorney.
Two top executives at bankrupt Solyndra have invoked their Fifth Amendment rights.....
Ha! Ha! Ha!.....I’ll bet they have!....A little C.Y.A. for Obama?
I’m surprised none of the “suits” at Solyndra have been reported missing.
Roger Clemens? Mark McGuire?
No, I based my remarks upon the protections against self-incrimination that the United States Constitution requires for any American Citizen who is accused of a crime.
Again from the top, with emphasis: These men have not yet been accused of anything formally, and are entitled to a fair trial, and freedom from self-incrimination.
To my knowledge, neither of these men works for the FBI, Justice Department or the Obama Administration, so I am not at all sure how your comments even apply here. The subject is the use of 5th Amendment....
Wow.The first paragraph! How can Obama deny? How sickening they used flags for a photo op.The way I look at it is Obama is political toast.He has tried racial tensions,riots,inciting Hoffa to declare war on American people.None of it worked.I heard some dem strategist on TV say out loud they wished Obama would fire everybody then take the reins.Holder and many others should have been fired long ago.If these men pleading the fifth get offered immunity for testimony Obama only move remaining will be to fire everyone.He won’t because he is too wrapped up in the mob tactics of his entire cabinet and departmental heads he will go to an impeachment trial at the very least.
So thanks to Obama it is OBAMA ADMIN Vs. America.
