Donald Trump exercised his right against self-incrimination Wednesday … taking the 5th in a civil deposition ordered by the brand new York Attorney General, claiming she’s corrupt.
Trump arrived at A.G. Letitia James‘ office Wednesday morning, fist raised and defiant. He issued an extended statement, saying, “We can not permit a renegade and out-of-control prosecutor to utilize this investigation as a way of advancing her political career.”
James is investigating Trump’s business empire for alleged illegal practices.
Trump continued to claim James has campaigned on the promise … “Get and Destroy Trump.”
For taking the Fifth, Trump said, “I once asked, ‘If you’re innocent, why are you currently taking the Fifth Amendment?’ Now I understand the answer compared to that question. Whenever your family, your organization, and all of the people in your orbit have grown to be the targets of an unfounded, politically motivated Witch Hunt supported by lawyers, prosecutors, and the Fake PRESS, you haven’t any choice.”
Trump added, “I did so nothing wrong, which explains why, after five years of looking, the Federal, State and local governments, alongside the Fake PRESS, have discovered nothing.”
