I don’t think you can plead the 5th before congress
Of COURSE you can plead the 5th before Congress!!! They won’t even call anyone whose lawyer SAYS they are pleading the 5th!!! They dont even have to show up!
Really? Someone should have told these guys from Solyndra.
If you are granted immunity, then you must testify. And, Congress has the power to grant immunity. Absent a grant of immunity, an individual has the right to assert the fifth amendment.
Oh, yes you can. Unless you are granted immunity. Which Holder will not grant because he wants Petraeus to shut up.
I seem to recall Denise Rich (among others) plead the fifth over and over during the Clinton pardongate hearings.
