Hope and Change and the Fifth Amendment

Yes, it’s their constitutional right, but the optics are also awful. Bloomberg reports:

Solyndra LLC executives refused to answer questions from a House energy committee investigating the solar-panel maker’s $535 million U.S. loan guarantee, which one Republican described as a half-billion dollar heist.
Chief Executive Officer Brian Harrison and Chief Financial Officer Bill Stover attended the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s investigations panel hearing today, flanked by their attorneys, as lawmakers said they were misled about Solyndra’s finances during meetings two months ago.

Harrison and Stover responded to questions by invoking their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
