Obama Pet Solyndra will Take the Fifth when testifying to Before Congress

Two top executives from the embattled company Solyndra will appear before Congress later this week, but their lawyers announced today that they will invoke their Fifth Amendment rights and decline to answer questions.

“This is not a decision arrived at lightly, but it is a decision dictated by current circumstances,” wrote Walter F. Brown Jr., the lawyer for Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison in a letter to Congress.

Among those circumstances, the lawyer said, is a broadening investigation by the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice into the Obama administration’s decision to loan $535 million to the California solar power company, and the abrupt financial ruin of the firm, which shut its doors late last month.

“It would be irresponsible for anyone in his position not to [take the Fifth],” wrote Jan Nielsen Little, the lawyer for Solyndra’s chief financial officer, W.G. Stover, Jr., in a separate letter.
