Mar 27, 2007 Justice Department official to take the Fifth
Justice Department official Monica Goodling plans to remain silent when she appears before the Senate about U.S. Attorney-firing-gate.
Ms. Goodling is entitled to take the Fifth. With at least one official of the nation’s largest prosecutorial arm asserting her Constitutional criminal defense right to remain silent, perhaps this will make federal prosecutors more sensitive to the rights of criminal defendants to assert their Constitutional rights.
