I believe in the case of grand juries (Clinton's follies aside) that
one may be jailed for contempt of court for refusing to testify -
also in the case of some congressional investigations. Perhaps I am
wrong in this opinion, but seem to remember hearing about someone
getting canned for trying to take the '5th'.

I know that countless lowlifes and criminals have relied on the 5th
Amendment to avoid further charges, but the general feeling for the
last few decades is that anyone taking the 5th is automatically
guilty, or they would have no problem talking.

Actually, I have not followed the mess in the White House too
closely. I care not who he is in bed with - as long as he is
following the Constitution and doing his job otherwise.
