Good for him. But I am puzzled by this line from the report:

be used"? Guess I need to look up the case.
Edit: from a Forbes article:
The Supreme Court “reasoned that there could be many explanations for silence in the face of questioning, and if the witness’s reason was the Fifth Amendment, he was obligated to say so
… if a witness mentions the word “lawyer” in declining to speak to investigators, courts are more likely to view that as an invocation that cannot be commented upon … Of course the most basic and obvious lesson of Salinas is that a potential law enforcement target should never speak to an investigator without counsel.”
These were the most conservative members of the Supreme Court, taking away your Fifth Amendment rights. Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia, Kennedy.
