It has become clear my answer to any question coming from government agents of any stripe, or anyone collecting any information which may be reported to any government agent will be, “I have the right to remain silent as anything I say can and will be held against me in a court of law. I have the right to speak with an attorney and to have the attorney present during questioning. If I so desire and cannot afford one, an attorney will be appointed to me before questioning. I am not waiving those rights.” A submission of a document containg that statement, signed and notarized, would fulfill the same purpose.
Remember if you should decide to take this advice that I am not an attorney nor have I played one in any television or film production. (I did tell Joe Pesci to “Get out of the truck.” I have, however, slept at a Holiday Inn or two.
