TimFelice's insight:

In this video David House, a supporter of Bradley Manning was subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in Alexandria Virginia. He compared this grand jury to The Pentagon Papers criminal investigation that was a scandal back in 1971. While the government has worked hard to keep this grand jury secret, there are those individuals, like David House who will continue to exercise their first amendment rights to tell the rest of the country what the government is actually doing. David plead the 5th and doesn't talk until a press conference after the court and all he talked about was what he thinks about the court.

TimFelice's insight:

In this acticle James Reeder making bad posts online. Reeder asserted the 5th Amendment when asked whether he was a juror during the Stovall trial, whether he made posts on CJOnline.com, and whether he posted under the identity of "Be Prepared." After Reeder asserted the Fifth Amendment three times, Phelps didn't ask any more questions, and Reeder was released to leave court. Again you see a man useing his 5th Amendment to not speak about what he did.

Morris Plains man invokes 5th Amendment in lawsuit over alleged shooting of girlfriend | The 5th Amendment | Scoop.it

This man is exercizing his 5th amendment rights.  He doesn't have to talk until he has an attorney present. Should he be able to change his story like that? What do you think?

Isaac Marolt's comment, March 2, 2014 9:26 PM
I believe he has the right to use his 5th amendment. It is clearly stated that a citizen doesn't have to take a stand at court.

TimFelice's insight:

Does a federal employee have a 5th Amendment right to refuse to answer questions from admistraters? This recent case decided by the Federal Circuit demonstrates that an employee may put his job in jeopardy where reliance on the 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination is misplaced.
