> Why would he want to plead the 5th?

Because during witch hunts, the "prosecution" likes to go off the rails
and ask questions that have NOTHING to do with the prosecution.

No Russian collusion? Simple... start asking about Beauty Pageants, fat
ex-porn stars and whatever they can think of to "catch" Trump in wrong-
doing.

You think tub-o-lard Hitlery wouldn't do the same thing if put under oath
today?

So EVERYONE who pleads the 5th is guilty, huh?

OK.

FLASHBACK: Nine Obama Administration Officials Who Pled the Fifth to
Congress

Nine Obama administration officials also invoked the Fifth Amendment.

Here's a list in case you forgot:

Who can forget about IRS Director, Lois Lerner who pled the Fifth
Amendment twice over allegations that the IRS had "targeted conservative
nonprofit groups for additional scrutiny of their applications for tax-
exempt status."

The first time Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment was in May 2013, while
appearing before the Senate Finance Committee. The second time Lerner pled
the Fifth Amendment was in March 2014 while appearing before the House
Oversight Committee.

GUILTY

In April 2012, General Services Administration (GSA)'s Jeffrey Neely
invoked his Fifth Amendment right when the House Oversight and Government
Reform Committee called Neely to testify about improper spending.

Neely also invoked his Fifth Amendment right after photos emerged of Neely
sitting in a bathtub with wine at GSA's Western Regions Conference in 2010
in Las Vegas, which spent $822,000 in taxpayer money.

GUILTY

Patrick Cunningham, chief of the criminal division of the U.S. Attorney's
Office in Arizona, invoked his Fifth Amendment in January 2012 in
connection with the Fast and Furious scandal.

GUILTY

Deputy Director of the IRS Greg Roseman pled the Fifth in January 2013,
after Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) started asking Roseman about "panel
findings that he helped a friend procure potentially $500 million worth of
IRS contracts."

GUILTY

Then there is the former State Department Employee Bryan Pagliano, who
famously invoked his Fifth Amendment right over his involvement in setting
up Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server in September
2015.

GUILTY

Former Department of Veterans Affairs officials John Sepulveda, Diana
Rubens, and Kimberly Graves, as well as former Environmental Protection
Agency official John Beale, all invoked their Fifth Amendment rights as
well.

All GUILTY

Wanna make a Conservative mad? Tell him a lie.

Wanna make a Liberal mad? Tell him the truth about shithole countries
where most of their voters are from.
