I had to check to make sure this wasn't an Onion article.

So... yesterday his home is searched by the FBI in what is supposedly a different criminal investigation, and today we learn he took the 5th so as not to incriminate himself by telling the truth.

One supposes he's going to have to be caught on camera robbing a bank before his followers get the first clue.

Naw, they'd just say that it was an antifa crisis actor posing as Trump.

"You see the mob takes the Fifth. If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?" - Donald Trump

""When you have your staff taking the Fifth Amendment, taking the Fifth so they're not prosecuted, when you have the man that set up the illegal server taking the Fifth, I think it's disgraceful" Donald Trump

"I think he's probably guilty. I think his defense has been horrible because he keeps going" nothing, I'm not going to talk. When a person doesn't talk, that usually doesn't mean good things." Donald Trump

They've moved beyond crisis actors and are now blaming clones.

"It doesn't even look like her, it might not be her, what do they have now? Clones these days? It might be a clone, yeah."

He's got a big fat GUILTY sign stamped on his forehead. Clients who are innocent and know they genuinely are innocent sing it out to the universe. eg: HRC in front of Congress.

Read the latest news. Der Dotard clearly invoked the witch hunt exemption' to his rule about who pleads the Fifth. All good in Trump World. Damn, the complexities of the mind of a stable genius. I don't see how the Maga-hat crowd can keep up with this seven-dimensional thought ...

He is smart to listen to his lawyers until they have more information about the games being played against him. Guess he needs a Comey to wash away the legal 'sins' like he did to hillary.

You mean when he reopened the FBI e-mail investigation a week before the election?

Oh puhleeze... they have the information... that is WHY they told him to plead the 5th.

There's another reason for Trump to plead the 5th. He's under oath. Trump can't tell the truth and often lies as it serves his purposes. Nor will he listen to his advisors. He goes his own way. The only way out of that is to plead the 5th. If he talks you can bet he'll lie. He will self-incriminate. That's a major hitter his lawyers are worried about.

Game over, man. Game over.

Trump pleaded the Fifth more than 400 times during his deposition in New York, only answering a question about what his name is ...

TRUMP in 2016:

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

Well then, if other information can corroborate the allegations, then pleading the 5th in a civil deposition can be inferred as an admission of guilt.

All dotard did was not give the prosecutors anything to charge him criminally.

He is going to lose the case, pay a hefty fine, maybe even have the business shut down like his corrupt charity was.

It's amazing the level of criminal corruption that the trumpturds will ignore just so they can own the libs. No morals in the entire bunch.

After weeks of rehearsal for the deposition, Trump's lawyers recognized that Trump is so damn dumb that they had no other choice than to plead the 5th. Trump is a world class narcissist that thinks his lies will get him off. What a colossal dumbass failure. He can't delay his way out of this one.

More like he is congenitally unable to not perjure himself.

as Richard Nixon eventually discovered, even rabid supporters like the ,"Moral Majority" eventually got tired of the liesand found new right wing crazies to follow. trump's window of support is beginning to close.

Of course he plead the fifth, until we get the truth about Hunter he shouldn't say a thing. /s
