Eric Trump Pleaded The Fifth More Than 500 Times In Deposition, Court Filing Says
The former president's son was interviewed by the New York attorney general's office in its civil probe into the Trump Organization.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Eric Trump and Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg invoked their Fifth Amendment rights more than 500 times when questioned by the New York attorney general's office for its investigation into the company's finances, according to a Tuesday court filing.

"Eric Trump then invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in response to more than 500 questions over six hours," the filing says of an Oct. 5, 2020, interview with former President Donald Trump's son.

Weisselberg reportedly did so during an interview on Sept. 24, 2020: "After answering a number of preliminary questions, Allen Weisselberg invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination to more than 500 questions over five-and-a-half hours."

New York Attorney General Letitia James' office argues that these instances demonstrate that the men were aware of potential criminal liability in the case.

Weisselberg and the Trump Organization were indicted in another investigation, led by the Manhattan district attorney's office, on July 1, 2021, on charges that include scheme conspiracy, grand larceny, criminal tax fraud and falsifying business records.

In her motion to compel Tuesday, James argued that Donald Trump and two of his children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump, should be forced to testify under oath as part of her office's ongoing civil investigation into the Trump Organization's business dealings.

James' motion seeks a court order enforcing testimonial subpoenas issued to the three Trumps, as well as the production of documents that have been withheld since they were subpoenaed in 2019.

"For more than two years, the Trump Organization has used delay tactics and litigation in an attempt to thwart a legitimate investigation into its financial dealings," James said in a statement.

She said her investigation had uncovered "significant evidence" that suggests Donald Trump and the company "falsely and fraudulently valued multiple assets and misrepresented those values to financial institutions for economic benefit."

Eric Trump lashed out at James over the motion, tweeting: "Letitia you can not escape your own words. This is all window dressing for your abuse of office and ethical misconduct (which we are prosecuting you for) and northing more than a PR move to revive a political career after your gubernatorial disaster."

Donald Trump filed a lawsuit last month to try and halt the investigation, accusing James of being politically motivated to "harass" him and his family.

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?”

So little Eric is guilty, perfect.

No, not constitutionally, in fact the DA herself said exactly that in briefs filed in the court...

The DA's office leaked that information to the media to get people to make the statement that taking the fifth is not a constitutionally protected right, but an admission of guilt...

And it is lapped up by those who will condemn without one shred of actual evidence....

Yes NWM, the NY DA cited the fact that invoking the Fifth Amendment is a Constitutional right. 

The NY DA's statement is a legal, factual statement, while Trump's is a false political statement. 

Though it IS ironic that Trump was sworn to uphold the Constitution too. 

The DA's office leaked that information to the media to get people to make the statement that taking the fifth is not a constitutionally protected right, but an admission of guilt...

Bullshit. Filings in NY State are public record. The court decides whether the records must be sealed. 

FAIL. 

And it is lapped up by those who will condemn without one shred of actual evidence....

The transcript of Eric's testimony is an exhibit attached to the filing NWM. It stretches credulity to presume, as you do, that the NY DA would make false assertions in a filing to the court, especially 'without a shred of actual evidence'.

A quick story, one time a woman was harassed at an apartment building.

I think I was visiting a friend or something. They called several people in to the police station. They called me as someone recognized my car as being in the area. I just went in and talked to them. Someone told me that was a stupid thing to do, get a lawyer or something but I knew I didn't do anything.

They asked me a couple of questions and said, ok, you can go. Never heard back from them. Someone did tell me later that they knew I wasn't involved.

Point being, nothing to hide, nothing to worry about.

I agree when it comes to testifying in court. 

Though I wouldn't let a cop into my home without a warrant, ever. 

'Can we come in for a minute and talk to you?'

'I'll be right out.' is always my answer, even in a fucking blizzard. 

Though I'll never forget when I reported my neighbor for beating the crap out of his girlfriend. The cop wanted to see where I was in relation to where they were when I saw him hit her. I told him to come on in, forgetting that my big honkin' black dog was right behind me. She put out a nice low growl and that cop ran down two sets of stairs to the street. He thought she was a wolf. I thought that fat man was going to have a heart attack...

I had to put her in my office before he would come into the house. 

I testified against that coward and he was nailed for a year for assault.

Those being deposed have legal representation and it's the lawyer's job to object to questions predicated on an assumption not in evidence or irrelevant to the investigation.

The vast majority of Judges wouldn't allow a loaded question like that in court either.

If it is a crime then Hillary should be in prison- as well as several other Democrat tools.

Simply substitute "Could not recall" or "Did not remember" for pleading the Fifth. She lied, but gets a pass for having the almighty D behind her name. 

Lois Lerner Obama tool against the formation of Republican Pacs during his second run at the presidency. She couldn't even declare the Fifth properly. Democrats of course gave her a full pass; and she stayed on the government payroll w/o holding a job. Great payoff for violating the law if you can get it. Considering the US government had to settle with all of the conservative groups affected- the Democrat narrative that no laws were broken was complete BS.

The former State technician famously exercised his right not to testify against himself before the House Select Committee on Benghazi in 2015. He was also reportedly awarded an immunity deal during the FBI’s now-closed investigation into Clinton’s use of the server while secretary of State.

Guess it is only wrong when those on the right declare the Fifth.

"Eric Trump then invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in response to more than 500 questions over six hours," the filing says of an Oct. 5, 2020, interview with former President Donald Trump's son.

Well, rather than just accept the seeded article, I actually downloaded and read the brief to the court.. (rather get from the actual source than those reporting on it) In the Brief she reports to the court 5.5 hours... Was she lying to the court?

That's the difference between reporters and their articles and the actual proof...

Some people don't bother to read the articles as we both know. They just go off half coked and make asinine comments

Well if you had actually read the proof the article in based upon then it would be a little different wouldn't it?

Doesn't matter anyway, you and your friends are holding the noose for Trump cause you have already determined him guilty anyway and will consider him that way no matter what evidence is proven or not....

On Stephen Colbert the other night - they were talking about how trumpturd over-values all of his assets - like the triplex trumpturd tower - he over-valued it roughly three times.  Like when he told Stormy Daniels that his dick was 3 inches.

They become Democrats!

And as long as the animals are at least further removed from each other than first cousins, it will improve the overall IQ of the Democratic Party members.

Taking the 5th will come back to bite them all in the ass.  In a civil matter, the jury can use it to convict unlike in a federal case.  Eric, the failed medical experiment, has given Letitia James a shit load of ammo against him.  The other Trumps will claim the fifth which will put the nails in their coffin.
