Trump Pleads the 5th After FBI raids Donald Trump’s mansion. Former US President Donald said Monday night that FBI agents broke into his Florida mansion as part of an ongoing investigation. Trump said the attack was aimed at preventing him from running for president again in 2024 and accused Democrats of abusing the justice system. similar to third-world countries.
See Mr. Trump’s full August 8th statement below: These are dark times for our nation as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida is currently under siege, attacked, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.
Nothing like this has ever happened to a US President. Having worked and cooperated with the appropriate government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was neither necessary nor appropriate by an onslaught by radical left Democrats who desperately do not want me running for President in 2024, especially according to recent polls, and who will also do whatever it takes to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming midterm elections in broken third world countries. Unfortunately, the United States has now become one of those countries, corrupt at an unprecedented level.
They even broke into my safe! How is it different from Watergate, where agents broke into the Democratic National Committee? Here, conversely, the Democrats stormed the house of the 45th President of the United States. Former President Donald Trump invoked his Fifth Amendment right more than 440 times on Wednesday by refusing to answer questions in a statement from attorneys for New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is investigating the business practices of the Trump Organization, a source with knowledge of the session told NBC News.
Shortly after arriving for that court-ordered oath interview at James’ offices in lower Manhattan, Trump emailed saying he would not answer questions because Fifth Amendment law prohibits people from being forced to make self-incriminating statements.
Trump answered only one question, his name, and then quoted the fifth in every other question asked during testimony, his attorney Ronald Fischetti told NBC News. Trump also read a statement calling the James Inquiry “the greatest witch.” Hunt in our country’s history,” and accused the Democratic attorney general of “openly promoting a policy of exterminating me,” Fischetti said.
Trump has denied wrongdoing in any pending investigation involving him. Trump said he decided there was “absolutely no choice” but to plead James’ fifth testimony after the FBI Mar-a-Lago raid “because the current administration and many prosecutors in this country have lost all boundaries.” ethical standards of decency.
Trump and two of his adult children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump, for months had resisted complying with subpoenas from James demanding their testimony under oath for her probe.
