Trump Takes the Fifth in Probe by NY Attorney General

Public Domain

45th President Donald J. Trump refused to answer questions Wednesday when deposed by investigators for far-left New York State Attorney General Letitia James in a civil probe into his business.

CNBC reports:

Trump announced he had invoked his Fifth Amendment right against making self-incriminating statements shortly after arriving for his scheduled, court-ordered interview under oath at James’ offices in New York City.

“I once asked, ‘If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?’ Now I know the answer to that question,” Trump said in a furious statement that railed against James as a renegade prosecutor with a vendetta against him.

“When your family, your company, and all the people in your orbit have become the targets of an unfounded, politically motivated Witch Hunt supported by lawyers, prosecutors, and the Fake News Media, you have no choice,” Trump said.

“Accordingly, under the advice of my counsel and for all of the above reasons, I declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States Constitution,” he said.

Smart move. Once you waive your 5th amendment rights, the prosecutor can ask any question he wants (assuming an Obama appointed judge lets him), and you have no choic but to answer.

The judge whom signed the warrant for Trump’s Florida estate, openly defended Lois Leaner when she refused to co-operate in the IRS bias activity. Truly a load of manure the executive branch of pure evil found. This slime ball was chosen after they turned over a slimy rock near the cess pool Washington swamp, and he slivered out from under it , ready to act on behalf of our illegal government evil plan to use their politicalized weapon, the FBI. This is the same FBI that held for 4 years, and lost the Hunter Biden labtop and could not investigate him. Holy chocolate cookies, these sneaky police answer to no one, what police agency works solely for a corrupt political party instead of the defenseless they swore to protect?

Trump just needs to say, “screw you people”, they will attempt to persecute him and his family until the end of time. These ‘dark state’ creeps will never give him a minute’s peace. He needs to move on and enjoy his life playing golf or whatever makes him happy.

Trump pleads the fifth BECAUSE of the raid. He has no idea what the FBI will SAY was there but actually planted by them. Everyone knows the intense corruption of the FBI.

What a blessing, President Trump has done one of the most brilliant things since he has taken office. He decided to not talk. The president has pleaded the Fifth amendment what a wise choice. Hallelujah!

Patel: “We won’t be hearing anything about, oh this is too close to the Election to raid a former President’s house but it’s close enough to the Election to hold off John Durham’s indictments and a Hunter Biden prosecution.” no truer words were never spoken.

James is a mean spirited libertard moonbat with a grudge against President Trump because of his success. I say continue to not give them a single thing. If anything needs to be said other than I”I invoke my right not to speak under the 5th Amendment”, let the Lawyers talk.

The time has come where politically motivated D.A.’s must be sued by the person whose life they harmed and require them to repay court costs AND personal costs of the politically injured individual.

The true criminals are the persons going after Trump on made up charges even though they know he would be acquitted months later. I hope the “correct” persons get a Gitmo long term vacation or more if they are deserving enough.

What an pompous ass NY State Attorney General Letitia Jones is, a true moron in very sense of the word, is using tax payers money, and services, for a witch hunt and waste millions on endless investigations of Trump. When she wrote the indictment accusation against Cuomo, no one could comprehend her grammar, or sentence structure. Demented politicians are important heroes, in New York State politics. The citizens vote for leftest, then wonder why they live in daily fear of criminals, since the people they elected protect criminals due to their ideology. Maybe, just maybe this time New Yorkers will wake up and kick her pompous smart ass out of office anyway possible. This leftest lawyer should try to protect the citizens of NY from criminals, the criminals her party refuses to arrest on difficult bail release. Catch and release with rapid crime across the state and this Nitwit devotes her time to destroying the Trump family. If she wants a really easy family crime indictments, she should go after the Biden crime family, starting with transporting NYC prostitutes across state lines . Nope, she is part of our corrupt two tier corrupt legal system, now copying North Korean style law enforcement and trials. What a sorry ass nincompoop. Nothing funnier, then propaganda one party lying news telling us no one is above the law. Everyone knows democrats are above the law.
