Learned A Couple Interesting Things About The Trump Tax Fraud Allegations This Afternoon
I'll make this short but sweet and see what comments come.
Donald Trump took the 5th amendment hundreds of times when he gave a deposition related to THIS investigation. For example, he was asked if he represented the size of his Trump Tower apartment as 30,000 square feet (which would make it the most valuable apartment property in the history of New York City and inflate Trump's worth for the purpose of getting loans and good interest rates) when the actual size is 11,000 square ft. When asked that exact question at the deposition (and other questions directly related) Trump took 5th amendment( (in other words said he would not answer on the grounds that it might incriminate him). Trump took the fifth time after time in response to SPECIFIC questions about this tax fraud.
Still think he's "innocent" ?
I also saw today that Trump and his lawyers tried to settle this case with the NY AG's office , but the AG Letitia James rejected the settlement offer.
The AG made a good decision making this a civil case. The government will now be allowed to tell the jury that Trump took the 5th amendment 440 times when asked specific questions about tax fraud.
