When TFG campaigned for president in 2016, he asked if one was innocent, why would he or she ‘take the 5th?’ He even claimed invoking the 5th Amendment was ‘disgraceful’ and something ‘the mob’ does. Fast forward to 2022 and guess who invoked his 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination during his deposition at the New York attorney general’s office? Donald J. Trump, #TheWorstPresidentEver.
(Letitia) James’ office is considering whether to file a civil suit against Trump and his company and has said in court filings that it has “uncovered substantial evidence establishing numerous misrepresentations” in Trump’s financial statements to banks, insurers and the IRS.
The financial statements were inflated by hundreds of millions of dollars and signed off on by the former president, James has alleged.
