Trump pleads the 5th Amendment 400+ times

Unread post by Nero »

Donald Trump: "If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth?’" "The mob takes the fifth."

"Video released on Tuesday showed Donald Trump answering questions from the New York state attorney general, Letitia James, in a deposition in a civil fraud case late last summer.

Questioned about his financial affairs, the former president repeatedly invoked his fifth-amendment right against self-incrimination – part of a refusal to answer he repeated more than 400 times.

“Anyone in my position not taking the fifth amendment would be a fool, an absolute fool,” Trump said.

On the advice of counsel, Trump said, he “respectfully decline[d] to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States constitution”.

The whole point is to get him to misremember something or misspeak so they can then charge him with perjury.

Considering the man is incapable of telling the truth. It was probably the best move possible. The walls are closing in. These things take time.

Well there is a trial date set is there not?

Based on the facts presented in the previous trial, I’d say he’s fucked and he knows it.

The again, when it comes to trumpers. I’ve concluded facts don’t matter. Neither does reality for that matter.

And deservedly so. He (and those closest to him) will come to regret the day he let his ego and bravado overtake his common sense.

He’s always been a trash human being. It was easy to see that 40 years ago. Nothing has changed.
