In September 2016 Trump declared,“If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment? The mob takes the Fifth.”
On August 10, 2020 Trump invoked his Fifth Amendment rights 440 times and declined to answer questions from the New York attorney general. And of course he whined, "witch hunt". He's only warming up. Count on him taking the Fifth like a mob boss for the following pending charges:
18 U.S. Code § 1924 - Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material
18 U.S. Code § 1505 - Obstruction of proceedings before departments, agencies, and committees
18 U.S.C. § 371 - Conspiracy to Defraud the US
MAGAts are outraged at the “politicized FBI” acting on a warrant approved by a judge Trump appointed.
And they’re still angry over the FBI refusing to interfere with the election, rightfully denying Trump’s demand to “Just say it was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the Republican congressmen".
Now "back the blue" and "law and order" MAGAts are howling, "Defund the FBI!"
Trae Crowder reacted to the radical Right’s reaction:
“There’s something real juicy about Mr. Lock-Her-Up getting busted for mishandling classified shit...These people are immune to irony and allergic to self-awareness.”
Take Mike Pence...please.
On 10-28-16 Mike Pence sanctimoniously tweeted:
“Donald Trump and I commend the FBI for reopening an investigation into Clinton’s personal email server because no one is above the law.”
Upon learning the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago for classified documents Trump illegally seized, the whiny hypocritical asshole tweeted his sanctimonious reversal of his previous sanctimonious tweet from 2016:
"I share the deep concern of millions of Americans over the unprecedented search of the personal residence of President Trump. No former President of the United States has ever been subject to a raid of their personal residence in American history...After years where FBI agents were found to be acting on political motivation during our administration, the appearance of continued partisanship by the Justice Department must be addressed...Yesterday's action undermines public confidence in our system of justice and Attorney General Garland must give a full accounting to the American people as to why this action was taken and he must do so immediately."
“Unprecedented”? No former president ever sent an armed violent mob to the Capitol to kill Mike Pence and overturn an election.
And it was NOT a "raid". Most Black people can tell him the difference between a search and a raid. Doors are kicked in and weapons are drawn in a raid. Always with the "Victim Card", these pearl-clutching, far Right types.
He may as well have written, “No one is above the law, except for Donald Trump”.
That is what MAGAts truly believe.
Are you one of them?
Here’s a quick quiz to find out:
Q: Did Biden defeat Trump in a fair 2020 election?
Q: Show us the evidence Trump won.
A: But Trump, along with his loyal lieutenants and co-conspirators Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman said so.
(There is no evidence. They tried and failed to show it in 60 courts.)
Q: Do you still believe Trump over his DOJ, his Attorney General, Homeland Security and his White House Counsel, as well as all the state AG’s and election certifications?
A: Yes. Trump doesn’t lie. Everyone not loyal to him does.
And there’s your answer.
"You aint gonna learn what you don't wanna to know."
