the obvious is being ignored
it is to hard to believe that her lawyers where that stupid to allow her to do that. pleading the 5th is one of the first things you learn in law school
so the only logical explanation is she and her lawyers knew exactly what they are doing. she wanted to be forced to testify under the rule of law so she could cut a deal and not look like a traitor to her coworkers and bosses
it is a way to get immunity and save face
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
Here's the thing with the 5th amendment. I can waive it by talking, but I should be able to invoke it at any time to stop talking for any reason. Yes, the IRS official waived the 5th amendment and then invoked it again. The Supreme Court just ruled way, way wrong on this bull**** too when they allowed a criminal suspect's silence to be used as evidence of guilt because he didn't say the magic words out loud. Looking for a police state, America? That's a good place to start.

You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
