1. “I’m being attacked from all sides. We’ve never seen anything like it, it’s terrible. You know they’re investigating me about my beautiful real estate, what a sham. It’s a disgrace. I told them I’m pleading the fifth. It has to be done. Truly, must be done, to protect the patriots all around this country.“

  2. he also said if you plead the fifth, you get "immunity", so maybe he thinks if he said it enough in the past, it must become true by virtue of magical presidential powers.

  3. Is he still banned on Twitter? If so they can reinstate his privileges and we could bet on when he will incriminate himself.

  4. "You see the mob takes the Fifth. If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?" -Donald Trump, 9/28/2016 rally, Iowa

  5. "Oh but he was just going off-script and giving his 'off the cuff' true opinion in the moment! You see, that's what we like about him! He's so relatable. Unlike all those other politicians with their elitist language and prepared talking points."

  6. He’s such a fucking cunt. It doesn’t bother me as much that he lies with every breath, it’s the fact that it works that really pisses me off.

  7. This is absolutely it, laid out succinctly. Unless he wanted to commit new crimes or admit to old crimes, this was the only option.

  8. Actually, that is the single best analysis of this I will read today. Many media outlets will waste many words saying just this. Thank you

  9. "If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?" - D. J. Trump, Sep 28, 2016, Council Bluffs, Iowa.

  10. He's the most laughable hypocrite on the planet, but his supporters don't care. I have extended family who, if he were to confess to treason on live television while a video of him molesting children played in the background, they would call the video doctored, his confession under duress, and then still talk about him as a "tough guy" and "master negotiator" who also somehow isn't tough or smart enough to not be forced to make a confession under duress by the deep state. All while donating their life savings to all 6 fundraising emails he sent out that morning.

  11. I’d link trumpcriticizestrump, but that sub’s been dead ever since his Twitter got banned. But man, was that a good time while it lasted.

  12. I mean, the number of times Trump has gone after someone for doing something he then does himself or has already done is staggering. This is completely on brand for him. But as others have pointed out, he didn't really have any other choice, as it was this, perjury or admitting guilt. Either way I hope we finally see some repercussions for him and this is only the start, through I'm not holding my breath.

  13. This is also a civil trial and not a criminal trial. The fifth is for CRIMINAL intent. Which means the jury is absolutely allowed to infer guilt or liability for this action.

  14. 100% but his supporters do not care and will not care. Hypocrisy only matters if the person being hypocritical cares about being called a hypocrite. A large portion of conversatives behave as if the rules are only for their opponents and not for themselves.

  15. His followers are in a cult. They have shorter memories than a goldfish’s, partake in alternative facts, and can’t recognize logic even if logic ran them over with a F-150.

  16. This is a civil case. And he's invoking his Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination of a crime.

  17. When a party invokes the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination in a civil case, the court is permitted to instruct the jury that it may draw an adverse inference that the answer would have been against the party’s interest.

  18. "Members of the jury, I am instructing you that in this civil trial, the defendant asserting his Fifth Amendment rights against criminal self incrimination may be used by you as the basis for a finding that the defendant committed the acts as alleged in the complaint." - Judge

  19. Conservatives whenever a person of colour says they don't want to answer police questions: "If you have nothing to hide, why not just answer the questiona?"

  20. Remember, this is the guy who could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Ave. (ironically enough) and get away with it.

  21. Why is he so worried? He said himself, if you have to claim the fifth, you must be guilty. I’m loving seeing him get hammered this week.

  22. It's still unclear that he's going to suffer any real consequences for his actions. The walls are always closing in, but never seem to quite get there in this corrupt, broken-ass country.

  23. When you have your staff taking the Fifth Amendment, taking the Fifth so they are not prosecuted, when you have the man that set up the illegal server taking the Fifth, I think it is disgraceful." — Donald Trump

  24. The rally crowd won’t believe you if you told them so it’s a win/win. This happens every time they are shown evidence of his actions directly conflicting with his words.

  25. But look, he’s seen plenty of people plead the fifth on TV shows. It’s a really great thing to do. Some of the best and smartest people do it. Some say it’s the best amendment out of however many amendments there are. It’s also very smart. Some say they’ve never seen such a smart move, and he’s not a lawyer but some say he could be one easily.

  26. "You see, the mob takes the Fifth. If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment" - some spray tanned shit gibbon

  27. Also, he’s pleading it during a CIVIL case. That means his answer to a civil matter could incriminate him for a crime and the jury can use pleading the fifth against him.

  28. He got roe v wade overturned with his packed court. That’s all they cared about. Edit: and his lying sacks of shit nominees

  29. He was, they don't even need him any more unfortunately. He emboldened the likes to DeSantis, TaylorGreen, boebert. And all of the shit head alt right terrorist groups. He showed them they can do what ever they want when they want and so far, no real actions taken against them, and even if action is taken, it doesn't roll back the damage they did.

  30. Oh but if you’ve done nothing wrong, then you shouldn’t have any issues answering questions. That’s what conservatives have been telling me isn’t it?

  31. Hmmmmm Hilary didn’t invoke 5th amendment when she was grilled all day. Funny when your not guilty or are not an uncontrollable lier. Somebody needs beat that fact into Trumpy. Hilary was not afraid to answer questions.

  32. "You see the mob takes the Fifth," …"If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

  33. Yeah, big strong man isn't he? When you lift up a rock and shine a light underneath it all the vermin run and hide. This guy is a cancer on America and the sooner you can get rid of him, the better we'll all be.

  34. There are so many amendments in the constitution, of Amerrrica. I can only choose one! I can only chooooose oooooonnnnneee!

  35. More presents? This week just keeps getting better. Wait, wait, wait, wait, I'm gonna predict something (its really on my chirstmas list). I predict he is going to fire one of his lawyers mid trial and spiral into madness as all his scummy shit comes out. Big stretch, but we'll see.

  36. Hopefully they finally found the body on 5th Ave. I spend a year in jail over weed, and this guy literally leaving bodies everywhere.

  37. Funny how fast the BACK THE BLUE party turn on their tails when they get caught being the truant.

  38. It's kind of true but it still infuriates me seeing MAGA hats using the term incorrectly. The phrase they want is Kangaroo Court. They are wrong about it regardless but at least they can use the proper term to make false allegations .

  39. The fifth amendment only protects you from implicating yourself in a crime. It can be used in a civil context to avoid answering questions, but the opposition can (and very often will) cite this as "adverse inference", because you are a witness that has been legally compelled to testify.

  40. “You see the mob takes the Fifth,” he said. “If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

  41. In case you still have not seen the pattern from day 1. If Trump accuses someone of doing something, he has already done it himself, often in a worse way.

  42. The fragility of a party who pretends to be tough, they sure do cry a lot. The Republican Party is a hot mess. On one hand, you have Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, the latter of which should be the face of the party. Soldier and country first guy.

  43. I expected nothing less. Waiting for the comments “I’m the best at invoking the 5th. No one can plead the 5th like I can. I wrote it. Honest to god, the framers came to me and said “Donald, we need a 5th amendment.” So here it is. The most beautiful amendment. “

  44. This is the first sign of deliberate and purposeful admission on Trumps behalf I’ve seen. I don’t care which side of the aisle you’re on, when someone this big pleads the fifth, they normally know that further discussion will incriminate.

  45. Hillary once sat through 11 hours of republican’s bullshit questioning (which they later admitted was politically motivated) and multiple investigations and this guy can’t even answer a single question without weaseling out like a mobster? Weak ass dotard. I don’t care what anyone says - she was right about him on all counts.

  46. The whole country knows he is a traitor to the United States of America except his looney toon cult.

  47. "You see the mob takes the Fifth," he said during one rally in Iowa. "If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?"

  48. This guy steals 15 boxes of top secret documents. Flushes evidence down the toilet, pleads the fifth (he said only guilty people do that). Seems totally normal to me.

  49. Funny ol’ Hillary sat for like 13 hours of questions voluntarily about the server with “lock her up” chants all over…this guy immediately, “I’ll take the 5th”

  50. "There are 5 people taking the 5th Amendment, like you see [in] the mob, right? You see the mob takes the 5th. If you're innocent, why are you taking the 5th Amendment?" Donald Trump, 2016-09-28

  51. Trumpers know he’s guilty AF. They don’t care. They will push every lie because they are white nationalists and white supremacists. They anointed Trump as their tribal chief. They will do whatever it takes for white Christian Americans to be the controlling majority again.

  52. He’s FUCKED. This isn’t a criminal trial. It’s a Civil trial. And in a Civil trial taking the 5th can be considered by the jury as an admission of guilt.

  53. “You see the mob takes the Fifth,” he said. “If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?” Donald Trump

  54. Imagine testifying under Oath on National TV for 11 hours without invoking the fifth. Yep, The Donald does NOT have the diamond ovaries it takes to be a real honest leader. Move on nothing to see ere but just your two bit corrupt 3 world style want to be dictator.

  55. "You see the mob takes the Fifth. If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?" -Donald Trump, 9/28/2016 rally, Iowa

  56. Correct me if I am wrong, but aren’t there tweets from him (when he had a twitter) where he says anyone who takes the 5th is guilty?
