    Due to 5th Amendment protections, he has a right to refuse to answer questions about his own personal decisions and actions, that may affect his personal guilt or innocence.

    But does the 5thA allow him to refuse to answer questions about those he worked with during this debacle?
    Questions about what info was sent to him? Sent to those working along side of him? And when?
    Conversations and/or correspondence he had with his superiors?

    Can he be legally compelled, under threat of contempt, to reveal what he knows about other's involvement?

    He's not being charged in a criminal case at this time is he? Isn't it more of a government employee being called on the carpet to answer for his actions?

    How can someone in a decision making position not be answerable for his actions? At the end of the day he's just an employee. If I tried pleading the fifth when my boss is pissed off at something I did I'm pretty sure I'd be canned.

    He has repeatedly declined to voluntarily testify to Congressional investigators about Operation Fast and Furious and has been subpoenaed and will invoke his right to remain silent under the Fifth Amendment…

    Jimmy Hoffa Senior and others have sat before commitees and pleaded the Fifth oven and over as each question was ask. In my opinion he is scared and stalling for time against what will be his demise with the others.

    But Hoffa was a citizen and testifying as such. You'd think someone who is a paid employee who is being Held accountable for his actions by his bosses would have slightly different rules applied.

    The law is the law, fine. From a practical standpoint it seems like a counterproductive way to get stuff done and seems *** backwards.

    He is going to a testify before a Congressional investigators commitee and not a court of law.
