    Trump's lawyers know he will lie under oath or perjure himself if he attempts to answer any questions.

    The problem with lying 300 times a day is that it's impossible to keep track of your lies. That's Trump's problem.

    It's a civil suit, dumbass. It is not a prosecution.
    The only reason to take the fifth in a civil suit is if answering the questions will likely reveal a crime. Because it is a civil suit, the NY AG can't prosecute Trump for any statements he makes unless he lies under oath. So the only reason for Trump to not answer the questions is out of fear he will reveal he committed a local or a federal crime since those are the only two entities that could indict him based on his testimony unless he were to commit perjury.

    Where is Trump being prosecuted? You keep claiming there is "prosecution."

    If it walks like a mobster and talks like a mobster, it's probably a mobster so, yes, I believe they are a mob family.

    Here's the big irony for Trump's illegal possession of classified documents: https://theweek.com/donald-trump/101...aw-on-handling

    Trump increased his current legal jeopardy by signing a 2018 law on handling classified documents
    PETER WEBER


    "If Donald Trump gets arrested by the guy Donald Trump appointed for violating a law Donald Trump enacted, I'll start going to church," Media Matters research director Craig Harrington, evidently not a regular churchgoer, tweeted Wednesday.

    Harrington was referring to Monday's FBI search of the former president's Mar-a-Lago club, cleared by Trump's hand-picked FBI director Christopher Wray, and a 2018 law Trump signed that elevated the unauthorized removal and retention of classified government documents to a felony, punishable by up to five years in prison.

    I can see an argument that his belief about only guilty pleading the 5th could be admissible in a trial.

    It should be pointed out that pleading the fifth in a civil case CAN be used as evidence that the person is guilty of a crime. That inference CAN be made in a civil trial. The fact that Trump invoked the fifth can be presented as evidence in a civil trial.

    Most people know Trump is guilty. There are those who admit it and those who don't.

    You think government employees have huge salaries?
