U.S. Attorney General Lynch Pleads The Fifth On $1.7 Billion Payment To Iran

Daily Mail: Loretta Lynch 'pleads the fifth to avoid answering questions' on $1.7bn payments to Iran

* Sen Marco Rubio and Rep Mike Pompeo blasted Lynch in a letter Friday
* Said Attorney General had refused to answer 'straightforward' questions
* Fifth Amendment keeps people from being witnesses against themselves
* The United States paid $1.7bn to Iran as settlement for failed arms deal

Loretta Lynch is 'pleading the fifth' to dodge questions about $1.7 billion payments made by the United States to Iran, two members of Congress have claimed.

Senator Marco Rubio and Representative Mike Pompeo wrote a letter to Attorney General Lynch Friday, accusing her of refusing to answer 'straightforward questions' about the payments.

The Fifth Amendment keeps people from having to be witnesses against themselves in a criminal case. Commonly, 'pleading the fifth' means refusing to provide information that might incriminate oneself.

The United States gave $.17 billion to Iran in three different payments, the first of which, worth $400,000 was made in January.

Democrats have a long history of pleading the fifth, matter of fact that is the reason why they haven't killed the bill of rights.
