BP Exec pleads the Fifth

(WFLX) - BP Executive Brian Morel pleads the Fifth at an oil spill hearing.

Morel is a BP drilling engineer who helped design the Deepwater Horizon well. He's the second witness to plead the Fifth.

Robert Kaluza, a BP employee who was on the rig when it exploded, also pleaded the Fifth.

Morel, however, did leave behind some fairly incriminating digital footprints -- e-mails about the state of the well before the explosion.
