>> Eastman's decision is an extraordinary assertion by someone who worked closely with Trump to attempt to overturn the 2020 election results. He met with Trump and pushed state legislative leaders to reject Biden's victory in a handful of swing states and appoint alternate electors to the Electoral College, effectively denying Biden's victory.


Stone says he will 'probably' plead fifth and decline to be interviewed by Jan. 6 committee
The former Chapman University law professor also pressured Pence, who is constitutionally required to preside over the Electoral College certification on Jan. 6, to unilterally refuse to count some of Biden's electors and send the election to the full House for a vote - or delay long enough to give states a chance to submit new electors.<<

The hour glass is draining fast.

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

Trump has stated that pleading the Fifth is "disgraceful."

"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," he said.

Trump also said pleading the Fifth is "disgraceful" and "a bigger deal than Watergate" at different points during his campaign.

Trump, however, pleaded the Fifth during his divorce from his first wife Ivana Trump in 1990 to avoid answering questions about adultery. Over the course of five depositions he was asked approximately 100 questions related to marital infidelity. He pleaded the Fifth on 97 of them.

So, obviously in Trump's eyes all these folks around him who are pleading the 5th are a-ok since it would affect him, but for everybody else it means they are guilty.

And stuff like this is why he is seen as a dick by so many.

Thank you Johnny and bamboo! Hey qotard bitches see above for another example of the filth you adore! Is Qrump the man you wish you were?

Listen Qotards, y'all can still salvage your manhood by stepping away from your am radio and breathing fresh air. Maybe take a yoga class, get a wave, or listen to some funk music for Christ's sake.

More hypocrisy from Trump and yet he is still their knight is shining armor.

I still wonder how many secrets Trump sold or let slip in the four years he was president. President. You people made Donald Trump the fucking president of the United States. What the fuck were you thinking?

So long and thanks for all the fish.

You ever advise one of your clients to take the 5th? Yes you have. Means nothing.

I advise most to take the fifth and let me do the negotiating. Its a protection from criminal charges. I use it for that. I would advise this guy to take the fifth if he hired me, but as you know, the fifth is not recognized in civil court. In civil, the silence can and will be interpreted as admission by omission or lack of evidence.
