Former lead Trump impeachment counsel shows that Donald Trump wouldn’t be taking the 5th if he hadn’t done anything wrong

In the event you missed it, earlier today, former President Donald Trump invoked his Fifth Amendment rights during his deposition with NY State Attorney General Letitia James office:

JUST IN: Trump says he’s got pleaded the Fifth in his deposition with the brand new York State AG.

“Beneath the advice of my counsel I declined to answer the questions beneath the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen beneath the USA Constitution.”

Former lead Trump impeachment counsel and federal prosecutor Daniel Goldman knows just what to make of this:

The Fifth Amendment means that folks are not forced to incriminate themselves.

Nevertheless, you dont take the Fifth in the event that you didnt do anything wrong. https://t.co/xIKupKNMSo

Well, thats certainly a take. Its an awful one, but its a take nonetheless. And we’ve without doubt its a take that hes very pleased with.

Now, its worth noting that the majority of liberals have already been tweeting about Donald Trumps past remarks on the Fifth Amendment:

Appears like Trump rekindled his on-again-off-again relationship with the Fifth Amendment today.

Donald Trump on the Fifth Amendment:

The mob takes the Fifth.

If youre innocent, why are you currently taking the Fifth Amendment.

Taking the Fifth, I believe its disgraceful.

Donald Trump happens to be pleading the Fifth.

Yeah? And? It had been wrong and stupid when Donald Trump said it, and its own wrong and stupid when Daniel Goldman says it.

Given that weve settled that, lets get right down to the business enterprise of smacking Goldman around, because as an attorney, he ought to know much better than Donald Trump the way the law is meant to work in this country.

Respectfully, NO.https://t.co/OpvxWVwxjQ

Just what a bizarre assertion from a lawyer https://t.co/QS9tgQMwp9

The lawyer requires a law class. https://t.co/Q4MCL1VFbi https://t.co/tlKGlmaixt

I’m forgiving of the quite typical bad take if it is from laypeople, but this dude is really a lawyer. I’m embarrassed for him. https://t.co/MgVz477W71

You dont say this if youre an excellent, as well as competent, lawyer. https://t.co/tyI4eKI6NW

No, you most definitely usually do not.

Why achieve this many #resistance lawyers insist upon playing dumb? https://t.co/kl91tOWwQF

Andy Grewal (@AndyGrewal) August 10, 2022

Are we sure hes only playing dumb, though?

This moron is running for Congress. Sigh. https://t.co/t8O9rJNenO

He really wants to represent New Yorks 10th Congressional District. What hes got choosing him is that, given the existing crop of congressional Democrats, hed fit right in.

Minorities often plead the Fifth because its their last type of defense, particularly if theyve been wrongly/unjustly targeted for legal reasons enforcement.

Appears like @danielsgoldman really wants to get rid of that.

Appears like hes a racist. https://t.co/0Oxy50e7Uy

Maybe he could be! It also appears like hes likely to regret ever having tweeted this next time a Democrat pleads the Fifth.

Easy and amply justified little bit of retribution for another R POTUS: pardon anyone prosecuted or investigated by these “legal resistance” vermin. https://t.co/3cTKFpMg6t
