Five people closely associated with Hillary Clinton have pleaded the 5th and are refusing to cooperate with the Durham investigation into the roots of Russiagate.
What are they afraid of?
Democrats and the media have been telling us for months that there’s nothing to this story, so why do they need to plead the 5th?
Breitbart News reports:
Durham: Five Hillary Clinton Associates Are Taking the Fifth in Russia Hoax Prosecution
Five associates of Hillary Clinton and her presidential campaign are invoking their Fifth Amendment rights and refusing to cooperate with Special Counsel John H. Durham, according a filing in federal court revealed later Friday in Washington, DC.
The revelation emerged in a motion filed by Durham to oppose the efforts of defendant Michael Sussmann and the Clinton campaign to withhold some documents from evidence by asserting attorney-client privilege.
Sussmann is charged with lying to the FBI in 2016 when he informed the FBI about a fraudulent link between then-candidate Donald Trump and the Russian government via Alfa Bank. Sussmann allegedly presented himself as a concerned citizen, and hid the fact that he was working for the Clinton campaign.
In the filing, Durham noted that while one witness, identified as “Researcher-2,” was granted immunity from prosecution in exchange for testimony, “at least five other witnesses who conducted work relating to the Russian Bank-1 allegations invoked (or indicated their intent to invoke) their right against self-incrimination.”
Inquiring minds want to know what’s going on here.
Why did 5 Hillary Clinton associates just take the fifth in the Russia hoax prosecution?

The mainstream media is curiously disinterested in this development.
