The attorney for retired Army Gen. Michael Flynn is refusing to let the former national security adviser testify before Rep. Adam B. Schiff, saying the California Democrat disregards “ethics in your theatrical demand.”

Attorney Sidney Powell said Monday in a letter that Flynn is invoking his rights under the Fifth Amendment to avoid being “paraded, harassed or disparaged” by Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Trump once mocked people who pleaded the fith by saying “The mob takes the fifth. If you are innocent why are you taking the fifth?”

Of course Flynn has already pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, so perhaps his attorney just realizes that he is sure to lie again and is simply trying to keep his client from serving more time in prison. 

Which begs the question, “Is there anyone who has worked in the Trump Administration who is not a habitual liar?”
