'Special prosecutor' always reminds me of the Inquisition, somehow. I
keep expecting the appearance of 'instruments' to get the subjects
into the proper frame of mind at any moment.

Such practices as grand juries and congressional inquiries, that
operate outside of the normal bounds of the legal system as regards
self incrimination and jailing persons who refuse to testify are
inmimical to liberty. If someone has not been accused of actively
breaking a law, and has not been convicted of same, should not be put
in prison for arbitrary periods just because they decline to answer

Freedom of speech implies the freedom to NOT speak, I believe..
