(Hill Reporter)"Only the Mob takes the Fifth.” Those words have come back to haunt Donald Trump now that a judge has ruled he and two of his adult children must comply with the subpoenas they were issued in connection with the investigation into the Trump Organization led by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

“I haven’t made a determination on what I think is best at this point,” [Trump’s attorney Alina] Habba said of the Fifth Amendment. “Unfortunately, they put them between a rock and a hard place. But I can tell you we’re appealing the decision.”



As Trump himself once remarked, "if you're innocent, why are you taking the FifthAmendment?" That's a good question for Trump's lawyer. Ms. Habba accidentally answered that question when she used the phrase "between a rock and hard place". Testifying truthfully under oath would not be a problem for an innocent person with nothing to hide. It's only a rock or hard place for a person who doesn't want to talk about their guilt in court or face perjury charges by lying under oath.

I previously noted in two posts below, "Trump confesses!" and "Donald Trump confirms that he is a tax cheat" Trump is a self-admitted crook.

For the record, I predict that Trump and his children will repeatedly invoke their Fifth Amendment rights. This, even though in a civil trial the jury can make an "adverse inference" from their silence. In a civil trial they are only risking fines and damages which is money out of the Trumps' pockets. In the Manhattan criminal case, they could all face prison time.
