ABSTRACT
This article focuses on some political development going on in Washington. Virtually unnoticed, the Senate on July 9 passed a bill to undercut the Fifth Amendment to the Bill of Rights. It would require witnesses to testify against themselves by the subterfuge of first granting them federal immunity. The casuistry is that since they would be excused from penalty, they could no longer plead self-incrimination. Some limitations were thrown around this dangerous measure which the House must now act upon.
