So this woman from the IRS is going to be called back because she supposedly didn't invoke her 5th Amendment rights properly. All because she gave an opening statement.
I completely disagree with the Congressman on this. The Constitution protects us from the Govt.
And the presumed guilty parties have the same rights. Any person can invoke they're 5th Amendment right at any given time. We have the right to not answer ANY question.
If we start allowing the Govt to decide when and at what point we can invoke our constitutional rights, we have lost our rights.
Despite who is being questioned and how guilty we may think they are.
There is a due process of law. If Congress wants answers then they need to convene a Grand Jury and indict this woman. Until then, she has the right to plead the 5th.
