(ANSA) – NEW YORK, AUG 10 – Donald Trump will not answer questions as part of the investigation by the New York prosecutor on his company and on the possibility that it has inflated the value of its assets to obtain better financial conditions. Trump states this in a note. “I refused to answer questions based on the rights that are granted to every citizen by the US Constitution.”
Trump then invokes the Fifth Amendment, which allows you not to testify against yourself, with the New York prosecutor.
“I was once asked: ‘if you are innocent why invoke the Fifth Amendment?’ Now I know the answer. When your family, your society and all the people in your orbit become the targets of an unfounded politically motivated witch hunt you have no choice – Trump points out -. If I had any doubts about it, these they were wiped out by the FBI raid two days before the deposition. I have no other choice because the current administration and many prosecutors in this country have lost their moral and ethical decency. ” (HANDLE).
