Also, if one may invoke on the basis above, does that invocation become null and void if one does answer any question, or have any further communication after that invocation? Does one have to re-invoke the right in general terms -- assuming that is permissible -- once again?
Nor do I plan to try to answer it. It's not an issue that's really addressed by Salinas, and I'm not planning to do the research into Fifth Amendment jurisprudence that would be needed to come up with a decent answer.

Not really. That question was addressed by KyJim in post 5.
