While the tizzy with hilly is going on, we have the Attorney General of the United states pleading the fifth to congress. This is what criminals do to keep themselves free.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is declining to comply with an investigation by leading members of Congress about the Obama administration’s secret efforts to send Iran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year,prompting accusations that Lynch has “pleaded the Fifth” Amendment to avoid incriminating herself over these payments, according to lawmakers and communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.


What does she have to hide that would be incriminating? Wasn't this just money they were "owed?"




“Who knew that simple questions regarding Attorney General Lynch’s approval of billions of dollars in payments to Iran could be so controversial that she would refuse to answer them?” Pompeo said. “This has become the Obama administration’s coping mechanism for anything related to the Islamic Republic of Iran—hide information, obfuscate details, and deny answers to Congress and the American people.”


Would explain the media being all over Clinton.

As a human being she has the right to fifth amendment protection.

But as the AG, as the office itself, it's physical representative? I do not see how the fifth applied here. It has to be trumped by the overwhelming importance of transparency in Government.

Way to keep accountability to your employees Obama.

Run a muck and just forget or plead the fifth.

They are above the law and checks and balances do not apply to these cronies.

Take the 5th you say, baseball time for anyone else, not for the Establishment.

I do not agree with you on much but on this I do. No Federal employee IMO should be permitted to plead the 5th and even more so on her level. It's beyond a failure of duty to the public. Disgusting act of selfishness. No loyalty to the people who she serves. Only to HERSELF.

The Obama pseudonym on the Hillary server was used to help facilitate this.

Weinergate is helping to overshadow this latest wrinkle.

All the immunity deals handed out were designed to cover for the Executive branch's complicity in treasonous offenses.

Round and round we go, and where it stops nobody knows.

Did Lynch plead the Fifth ... or not?

Your source doesn't state that she did.

Just stamp her own form right.

Look, she has a loyalty problem. Loyalty to Obama and her party instead of to her REAL employer which is the American people. She should resign immediately. She has no more integrity. Corrupt to the core.

It worked for Lois Lerner and others. It is the Obama Way.



1 -VA official, John Sepulveda, spent large amounts of taxpayer money on a pair of extravagant conferences, resigned, and then spent the majority of a hearing looking into his actions saying “On the advice of my counsel, I respectfully decline to answer based on my fifth Amendment constitutional privilege.”

2 -Fast and Furious – remember the scandal that started it all? Patrick Cunningham, the chief of the criminal division of the U.S. attorney’s office in Arizona, invoked the fifth regarding his role in the operation that sent more than 2,000 guns across the border to dangerous drug cartels. Those guns were found at the scene of Brian Terry’s murder.

3 -While not technically administration officials, Solyndra executives were so intertwined in Obama’s stimulus boondoggle that it felt as such. Naturally, when Congress wanted answers on why the solar company was awarded a $535 million loan guarantee through the stimulus, they invoked the fifth Amendment.

4 -Greg Rosemen, a Deputy IRS Director, pleaded the fifth after awarding the largest contract in IRS history to a company owned by a close friend.

5 -And of course, probably the most famous effort at pleading the fifth, was Lois Lerner, who repeatedly asserted her right not to testify regarding the scandal that her agency, the IRS, targeted conservative groups and withheld or prolonged their applications for tax-exempt status.

I agree. No representative of the people should be able to plead the 5th about what they did while serving the people.

Private maters sure, but why can they plead the 5th in these situations?

The people deserve the truth. The people need to pass a law and make it retroactive, since WE the people can do stuff like this in OUR country.

I think a representative of the country should be held in contempt if they fail to answer questions that the people want answers too. They were not acting on their own behalf, but on behalf of the entire nation. And they don't want to tell us what they did?

If the choice was prison or prison I'm certain we would get the truth with a plea bargain.

Guess I jumped the gun on that, my bad.



prompting accusations that Lynch has “pleaded the Fifth” Amendment


We should definitely let her actually plead the 5th before we drag out the water board. Anything less would be uncivilized

Why would the Attorney General be in on the Iran Deal though? That's kinda not her realm of responsibility.
