Trump has asked why an innocent person would take the Fifth Amendment, calling it “disgraceful” and “horrible.” So he must think his lawyer Michael Cohen, who just took the Fifth, is guilty, right? #NeedtoImpeach www.NeedtoImpeach.com/corruption/

Trump has had a lot to say about the Fifth Amendment in the past.
“You see the mob takes the Fifth,” he said. “If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”
Another time, he said, “Fifth Amendment. Fifth Amendment. Fifth Amendment. Horrible.”
During a presidential debate, he said,
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.
But his lawyer, Michael Cohen, just took the Fifth Amendment. Based on Trump’s logic, he must be guilty then, right?
From Rudy Giuliani to Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s legal team has been marked by turnover, infighting, contradictions, and FBI raids. As the President’s legal troubles worsen, so too does the chaos among his lawyers.
