Many believe the 5th amendment is only for the guilty. They are wrong. Even if you aren’t guilty, you could easily be put in jail by our “justice” system which can and will use everything you say against you. No reason to give them more evidence. That’s why it’s best to invoke your 5th amendment right to not incriminate yourself and to remain silent.

there's actually a book out there and I forget what it's called but it lists hundreds of cases of innocent people that were sent to jail because their words were twisted in a court of law. the books mean theme is that your right to remain silent should always be taken and you should never speak to the cops without a lawyer present..

but the same applies here.. especially when they're out to get somebody it's a good idea not to talk to them

more importantly Trump shouldn't be legitimizing these phony witch hunts.. the New York attorney general literally promised during her campaign that she would abuse the power of her office to constantly and relentlessly investigate Trump and go fishing for crimes until she found ANY reason to put him in jail

she's literally on video saying it during her campaign..

she said the same thing about America's oldest civil rights organization the nra.. promising to investigate them and find any reason to shut them downn

New York is a communist shit hole so the corrupt New York judges wouldn't throw out the investigation..

so Trump doesn't owe them anything and he shouldn't legitimize their bullshit by even showing up to court. if they want to come after them him but them get their little agents and travel all the way fucking down to Florida pass the national guard past the thousands of trump supporters who will be armed to the teeth and then make their way past his heavily armed secret service if they want to "get" him

Oh Yes, they have been out to get Donald J. Trump and family and friends and anyone taking his side for 6 years now.. I agree that dirty tricks and such are standard procedure for those who lack actual evidence (ahem Russia Russia Russia) with fabricated nonsense being propped up as some kind of truth..

@Barxe The thing is that junta's are usually kicked off internally by the Military. Without the Military on our side the internal deep state will send out the Batman Pedo Symbol up in the sky for NATO to come put boots on the ground to stop the "insurgents from trying to stop Democracy" UN Blue helmet boots on the ground will come from all the Satanic Nations any violence before Nov22 can be an excuse to cancel the elections.

Don't you think we should see the results of 11/22 first? I mean Nancy Pelosi said "We do not expect to lose any seats" If they don't then we know they cheated and know they don't plan on ever giving up power. However, if we do get the House & Senate back Biden will be a lame duck we can reverse everything he did. So his 2 years of terror will be over.

Plus Trump can be Secretary, Both Biden & Kam are impeached, he can then be President again & still fun 2024. :)

Great video! Watched it more than once. People don't understand their rights.

Innocence is irrelevant.

ThunderInYourHeart 4 points ago +4 / -0

This sort of thing has always bothered me. I’m not a cop hater or anything, but even as a law-abiding citizen I never feel comfortable around them. They are supposed to be there for my safety as a citizen, but I always get the feeling that they’re poking around for something. Just the idea that police at any level of government have authority over you and are often eager to dig for something, anything to get you on even though there is no apparent wrongdoing is unsettling to me. I don’t like that the law can be taken advantage of, that it is considered wise to NOT talk to the cops, who we are supposed to trust.

DylanPatrick 8 points ago +8 / -0

I used to be naïve and I had thought it was good to cooperate with the authorities. That is not so. It is always best to invoke your rights to be silent and ask for an attorney even if you did nothing wrong. If you are questioned by a prosecutor invoke the 5th every time.

6
Demonspawn 6 points ago +6 / -0

To be frank, if I knew I was guilty and accepted the punishment (speeding, etc.), I'd talk. Nothing to lose and everything to gain (warning, lighter punishment).

If I thought I did nothing wrong, I'd shut the fuck up, invoke the 5th, and get a lawyer. At that point I have nothing to gain and everything to lose.

Unless you want to plead guilty, because you are guilty. Then talk all you want.

If the cops want to arrest you, they're going to arrest you. Any words you say will only hurt you in court. If you say NOTHING, you drastically increase your chances to beat any charges and collect some sweet sweet lawsuit money.

You are in part of a thread that (wisely) recommended not talking to the police.

You threw yourself in there, badly advising fellow pedes that "sometimes" it's okay.

It is never okay. Get a lawyer and ask them the best course. As is your RIGHT.

sully 1 point ago +1 / -0

It's not just about putting together a defense, the whole premise is you're innocent until proven guilty.

Even if you are guilty, under the law, you are still presumed innocent until your accuser proves you are guilty. After all, they are the ones with the burden of proof, and not you. This is also why you never plead guilty or no contest either, because there could be a chance you can't be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Jack_HinsonTN 2 points ago +2 / -0

It's a bitch to find a copy of the statement itself, as it appears to be a press statement instead of his usual ones. It's quoted identically in several leftist rags:

https://www.politico.com/news/2022/08/10/trump-to-be-deposed-by-new-york-attorney-general-on-wednesday-00050784

https://www.cnbc.com/2022/08/10/trump-says-he-refused-to-answer-ny-attorney-generals-questions-in-probe-of-his-business.html

The text of it is this:

"I once asked, 'If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?' Now I know the answer to that question," the statement said. "When your family, your company, and all the people in your orbit have become the targets of an unfounded politically motivated Witch Hunt supported by lawyers, prosecutors and the Fake News Media, you have no choice."

So far I haven't found a copy or transcript of the full statement even on alternate browsers and engines.

There's a more complete one here in this twat:

At this point trump would be smart to plead the 5th if one of these deep state hacks asked him what time it was. They'd try and hit him with perjury charges if his watch was off.

I would have seen the FBI coming a mile away if I was him and would have had (at least) the document stash/bait pile under surveillance with hidden cameras and microphones.

I would have had the whole house wired given enough time. This shit may end up biting the FBI in the ass, he could very well be sitting on his couch watching them mill around in mar a lago while eating a bowl of popcorn.

Given the fact that he left the state the day before the raid is kinda telling just how prepared he is. They didn't just know it was coming, but when. It's not surprising he's got a counterintelligence operation going, it seems he learned his lesson from the first time around because his "son" in law and ivanka "gracefully" exited the picture awhile ago too.

Ain't it interesting how all the leaks from inside team trump stopped once the saudis gave Jared a few shekels to rub together from their sovereign wealth fund?

Nowhere do the words

"If you plead the fifth, that means you are refusing to testify in court for the entirety of your trial.

Thus, you are missing out on the opportunity to defend yourself and state your side of the story."

Tendies_or_GTFO 3 points ago +3 / -0

That's what your lawyer and other witnesses not implicated in the charges are for. The burden is on the prosecution to prove their case, defendants are often cautioned against testifying by their attorneys, outside of some limited circumstances, and many of them have nothing to do with guilt.

Maybe he wanted to be out of town so the Gestapo had time to raid his honeypot. I could see Guiliani orchestrating that.

Never work with people that want you destroyed. NY has made it their personal mission to harass Trump just like the FBI has. There is no justice when criminal DAs run amok.

This is a CIVIL case — the court can (and will) draw an inference of liability. This is exactly what the AG was hoping to achieve.

"The Fifth Amendment does not forbid adverse inferences against parties to civil actions when they refuse to testify in response to probative evidence offered against them.” Baxter v. Palmigiano (1976) 425 U.S. 308, 318. Under Baxter, an opposing party can’t simply point to the silence and claim victory, but a court is entitled to draw an adverse inference from the witness's refusal to testify.

No. They were hoping he would come in, brashly testify and say that he signed a document on a Tuesday when he really signed it on a Thursday. Then they would hit him with a criminal perjury charge while continuing the lawsuit.

That was the holy grail for this operation. This outcome was next best. But still far better for trump than actually answering any perjury trap questions.

"probative evidence offered against them"... show me this and than it is valid. Until than they can go fuck themselves.

Not how it works. And the case you cited doesn’t say what you’re pretending it says. This comment reeks of shill.

Oh? OK then. I'll defer to your civil litigation expertise.

SuckADickGarland 0 points ago +1 / -1

You don’t need civil litigation expertise to know the difference between "can" and "will"

The AG doesn’t have probative evidence. She is trying to get Trump to say something which contradicts previous statements. If he chooses to say "I’m exercising my right to not answer your questions" a judge/jury is not necessarily going to hold this against him.

As he should.

Everyone related to Hillary Clinton's server took the 5th.

Everyone related to the Steele Dossier took the 5th.

Everyone related to the IRS scandal took the 5th.

This was not an article. These were hearings.

Here is an article about Lois Lerner taking the 5th, but you cannot get the full effect. Over and over, when asked a question, she would say "on the advice of my counsel, I am pleading the 5th Amendment".

Hillary Clinton's staffer pleads the 5th:

It's pretty clear that he's not going to get a fair hearing, so he shouldn't say a damn thing.

Good for him, DA/FBI/CUCKS would charge him with perjury just for saying "Good Morning".

"It wasn't a good morning, Bill's wife is still vacationing with her boyfriend in Rome, so Mr Trump perjured himself" - FBI

If I didn't know better, I'd say that Trump is proving that we don't have a single one of our constitutional amendments anymore. 4A was just violated 2 days ago. The PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!

It's been sacred that, even the corrupt-as-shit ones don't get harassed in or after office. He's proving that they violate all the amendments while he was in and out of office.

It's like the reverse Normal Rockwell!

Lets see how long it is before the Leftist MSM starts declaring him guilty because of his decision not to cooperate with the Gestapo inquisition.. I think a barrage of videos of the Democrats saying this and "I have no recollection" when being questioned along with our Meme warriors laying out a barrage of content..
