FIFTH AMENDMENT
La Quinta Enmienda a la Constitución de los Estados Unidos establece varios principios legales fundamentales que protegen al ciudadano frente al poder del Estado. Entre estos derechos están el de que una persona no sea encarcelada o sus bienes sean embargados sin juicio previo, así como el derecho a no ser procesada dos veces por el mismo delito, o a no ser obligada a aportar pruebas contra sí misma. Al hecho de negarse a aportar pruebas autoincriminatorias se le conoce como taking the fifth (acogerse a la quinta) y, durante las investigaciones anticomunistas que el senador McCarthy realizó en la década de los años 50, aquéllos que se acogían a esta quinta enmienda eran generalmente acusados de llevar a cabo actividades antiamericanas.
