*****In reference to our title on ‘pleading the fifth’, we always like to include a daily lesson or two if possible and here is the word or the lack of the word in some cases on this phrase from Wikipedia.*****
To “plead the Fifth” is to refuse to answer any question because “the implications of the question, in the setting in which it is asked” lead a claimant to possess a “reasonable cause to apprehend danger from a direct answer”, believing that “a responsive answer to the question or an explanation of why it cannot be answered might be dangerous because injurious disclosure could result.”
