    Former President Donald Trump invokes Fifth Amendment rights and declines to answer questions from NY attorney general

    Trump was to be deposed by lawyers from New York Attorney General Letitia James' office as part of a more than three-year civil investigation into whether the Trump Organization misled lenders, insurers and tax authorities by providing them misleading financial statements.

    Some Trump advisers had advocated that the former President answer questions since he previously testified about his financial statements under oath, while others warned him against providing any answers because of the potential legal jeopardy he may face.

    The Manhattan district attorney has a separate ongoing criminal investigation into the Trump Organization.

    Oh, remember all the times Trump bashed pleading fhe Fifth? lol

    "if you're innocent why are you taking the 5th amendment?" - DT

    Yes, Google is our friend.

    "'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,' the former President stated.

    The Fifth Amendment guarantees that an individual cannot be compelled by the government to provide information that might be incriminating against themselves.

    When an individual declines to answer a question by 'taking the Fifth,' he or she invokes that right. It is not an admission of guilt.

    'No person shall ... be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself,' the Fifth Amendment states.'"

    "While campaigning in 2016, Trump suggested not answering questions was a sign of guilt. At a campaign stop in Iowa in 2016, Trump said, 'If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?'
    In his statement Wednesday, Trump said, 'Now I know the answer to that question' and decried James' investigation. The former President and the Trump Organization have previously denied any wrongdoing.'"
