Barry Cadden, the owner and director of the New England Compounding Center that was found to be the source of the fungal meningitis outbreak, has appeared before Congress!

When questioned he plead the Fifth.

That meant that he was exercising his constitutional rights to not be forced to incriminate himself.

So the whole hearing in front of Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Florida, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations went like this:

Stearns: "Let me be clear, Mr. Cadden. Again, are you refusing to answer the questions on the basis of the protections afforded to you under the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution?"

Cadden: "Under the advice of counsel, I respectfully decline to answer on the basis of my constitutional rights and privileges."

Stearns: "Will you invoke your Fifth Amendment rights in response to all questions today?"

Cadden: "Yes."

So Cadden basically refused to answer any questions at all because his lawyers advised him not to.

Which is probably in his best interest, but we still see him facing jail time in the future.

The subcommittee excused him from the proceedings but warned him he may be recalled.
