The chief executive and chief financial officer of Solyndra will invoke their Fifth Amendment rights and decline to answer any questions at a congressional hearing on Friday.
According to letters obtained by Reuters, Solyndra attorneys have advised CEO Brian Harrison and CFO W. G. Stover to not testify at a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. (RELATED: Rahm Emanuel on Solyndra: I dont remember)
I have advised Mr. Harrison that he should decline to answer questions put to him by this subcommittee based on his rights under the Fifth Amendment, Harrisons attorney, Walter F. Brown Jr., wrote to the the committee. This is not a decision arrived at lightly, but it is a decision dictated by current circumstances.
The House Energy and Commerce Committee opened an investigation into Solyndra after the solar panel manufacturing company which received a $535 million loan from the Department of Energy announced it would be declaring bankruptcy earlier this month.

Doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out the case of “The Dog That Did Not Bark”.
Oh, this is going to be good.
Pleading the fifth in front of congress is a public admission of guilt no matter how its spun.
HOW DARE THEY?!!?!?!
Last I checked that was our money they consumed.
Nothing to do with this administration is on the up and up. NOTHING. They took our money now do not want to talk to us. BULL@#$
Friggin’ unbelievable. These folks are going to wind up in jail just like Bubba’s buddies.
I think I see the opening five or ten seconds of the Republican presidential campaign ad right here.
There's no one left to lie to.... (now where have I heard that before...)
If these Solyndra execs testify, it puts them in criminal jeopardy. If they don’t testify, it puts Obama in political jeopardy.
They are either protecting Obama or have been threatened by Obama if they talk. Don’t know which.
Smug and Wicked.... and Mendacious... :)
I remember him saying that Clinton enraged some people so much that they called him “thatsonofabitch”.
I laughed my buttocks off because my wife's sweet grandmother called him EXACTLY that - said in just that fashion!
“Oh, this is going to be good.”
Oh, I doubt it.
It will just be a replay of the arrogant phalanx of closed-mouth lawyer pricks that resulted in no charges against the criminal scum infesting the Clinton White House. Critical of course will be the role of the CommieMedia providing distraction, obfuscation and misdirection for the disnterested sheep in the American public.
There’s a cell at Leavenworth with hussein’s name on it.
So who’s got the photo of the popcorn? I’m getting hungry :-)
