What Will Happen If Trump Pleads The Fifth?

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) told MSNBC that while it is an American right to plead the Fifth Amendment, if President Trump did so, it would be “a staggering admission of criminal liability.”

Blumenthal stated, “We have to begin this conversation, as good lawyers do, by saying everybody’s entitled to the Fifth Amendment, and a judge will instruct a jury no adverse inference from it. But the American public knows that it is — for the president of the United States to take the Fifth Amendment is a staggering admission of criminal liability. It would be earth-shattering for the president of the United States.”

    • Raymond J Ambrozaitis

      I got two words for your big gun let go !!! YOU are done pissing !!

  • John Flynn

    Blumenthal is the senator that claimed he was in the US military; but he never served nor was he ever drafted. The man is a LIAR! Our vets don’t deserve this POS, either in CT or anywhere throughout the USA…

      How do you feel about Cadet Bone Spurs deferments then?

      • John Flynn

        Depends. How do you feel that I wasn’t drafted ‘cuz of my epilepsy?? Besides, why do they have a “bone spur” deferment, after all, there must be a reason and it is physically detrimental. Do you understand?? Trump and I were 4-F, do you remember such things? I doubt you were even in the draft

        • Raymond J Ambrozaitis

          Guess again I am 70 years old which if you are capable of the math put me right there when it came to the draft and Nam. As for the bone spur deferment are you truly that stupid as to believe that it is a true story? Remember The Dotard claims to have played a variety of Varsity sports wiht his so called bone spurs. What sport did you letter in with your epilepsy? Slinging bullshit??

          • Tony

            Were you drafted? Did you serve in the military? You didn’t say. I am also pushing 70 and was right there with you. I was called to duty by our state Air National Guard the same day I was called to report for my physical exam for the draft. I contacted my local draft board and was instructed to not report for the physical for the draft. About the time they started the lottery system. I had a few friends that were classified as 1-A who avoided the draft just out of pure luck as well as physical defects that seemed minor, but they were turned down for employment,by certain companies, because of the defect which probably disqualified them from being classified as 1-A for the draft.

            And Raymond J Ambrozaitis is deathly quiet. By the way, I AM a Veteran. A disabled Veteran from injuries I received serving my country and I hold President Trump in the highest regard. (Unlike the draft dodger Clinton or the cowardly cabana boy aka, cocksucker, obama.) Trump at least have military academy experience and is able to lead our military.

          • Raymond J Ambrozaitis

            You SIr are an ass. The Dotard has robbed the Military and only after getting caught made restitution. He has closed down offices that were providing various types of help for returning veterans and he will eventually find somewhere to go to war yet again. He attempted to appoint a drunken pill pusher to head the VA and thank God failed. Now he wants the US answer to Mengele and Himmler as head of the CIA. He is with intent pushing away our allies who have fought along side of us for decades and is kissing Putin’s behind. You find attending military school equal to military service, you find saying his military service was time spent avoiding an STD? You disgrace those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice. I have nothing but pity for you as you feel the need to lead a fraudulent life and pretend to yourself you are a patriot. then you deceive those around you by doing the same. Would you have preferred I remained as silent as you think I was being or do you like being outed for your ignorance and pitied for it not for your disability.

          • Raymond J Ambrozaitis

            I Went to the AFEES along with three childhood friends. we all were volunteering. I personally did not need to be drafted, I wanted to go . I am a naturalized citizen and wanted to serve the country that had given my parents and I freedom from the USSR. Long story short. I failed my physical, which was not an easy thing to do back then and my friends passed. I am certain you remember such enticements as things called the”buddy system” ? My three friends were told they would serve together ( Yeah right) in a way they did serve together as in a period of two months all three came home in sealed metal containers for burial. Hardly a day goes by I do not remember something one or the other would say or do and I flash back to going home on the T after having failed that physical alone. So no Tony I did not serve but I lost a lot in Vietnam.

          • John Flynn

            Wrestling, but a cause of epilepsy CAN be hyperventilation and that’s what the doc said was one of my causes. So, back to Trump, you’ve never known anyone with bone spurs? The few I’ve known have told me it’s VERY painful. I don’t want my “buddy” in the army to not be able to keep up with me or to be in pain all the time. It’s not fair to him or me….

          • Raymond J Ambrozaitis

            Obviously my marksmanship is failing. The whole point is that Bone Spurs whose existence was paid for cause no pain except possibly in character or Daddy’s wallet.

    • Rick501

      John – Let’s count the lies: Trump vs. Blumenthal. Guess who wins?

      • John Flynn

        Wasn’t your man Blumenthal head of the SECin the late ’90s or early 2000s?

    • Tony

      Trump would be a fool to not take the fifth, if he is ordered to appear before a grand jury. Knowing that it is a set up by the Mueller team to trap the president into perjuring himself, Why would he not plead the fifth? It would certainly be a true statement in this case.

  • flashy0ne

    What a “crock” !! Typical ‘left wing’ logic — “YOU ARE PRESUMED GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT”. The President FORCED to testify against himself ?? — RIDICULOUS !!!!!! You HATE mongers are after only one thing — ‘get rid of President Trump’ BY ANY MEANS POSSIBLE. Face the facts ‘buck-o’ — Mueller’s come up with NOTHING — soooo he’s out to manufacture a crime to justify his OUTLANDISH expenditures and his CROOKED sponsors. WHY HELP HIM ????????

    • R Kirkland

      You are correct. If this were reversed and it was a Democrat President, the Libs would be protesting and blocking the steps to the court to give their guy his right to not testify against himself. The Liberal Hypocrisy is unbelievable.

  • Dane A Wyrick

    At this point, what does it really matter, I didn’t have sex with that woman

    • Rick501

      Dane A Wyrick – You look too young to have sex.

      • Dane A Wyrick

        You must be blind as a bat! As I’m damned near too old. Lol

        • Rick501

          Dane – That was a compliment.

          • Dane A Wyrick

            Having sex with that old bag is not restricted by age but rather dictated by common sense 🙂

  • Kate

    No! it’s not a “staggering admission of criminal liability”. It’s the realization that he’s being set up and is smart enough not to play into their hands!

    • Tony

      That is the way I see it.

  • Ah nutz

    dems. would crap their pants = Trump would smile & so would we…time to jail the investigators or at least levy huge fines on ’em. NUFF

  • Agostino

    Just refuse to talk to Mueller! There has been no crime! There should therefore be no subpoena, and if there is, ignore it!

    • Rick501

      Agostino – No crime—wait and see.

      • Dane A Wyrick

        You say that as if you know of a crime committed, which would make you at best guilty as and after the fact accomplice.

  • rivahmitch

    So… here is a shyster who should know that exercising the 5th Amendment right against testifying is NOT to be considered an admission of guilt, arguing that in the case of a particular individual (suppoisedly “innocent until proven guilty” it would be “a staggering admission of criminal liability”. As a ‘Nam vet, I’ve always considered Blumenthal to be a piece of excrement but this really is absurd (even for it).

  • David Seale

    IT IS TIME TO DEPORT THESE DEMOCRAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • elmcqueen3

    No…It would not be earth shattering…half of the population in this country believes SC Robert Mueller is conducting a witch hunt…the other half are hoping he finds something on the end of his broom…any thing with which to get Trump impeached…the liberals don’t care if it is made up crap by Mueller to include his team of Hillary Democrats…They would welcome it even if it were “faked” evidence as was the Christopher Steel “dossier”…Lois Lerhner of the IRS took the 5th and that was the end of that…no more investigation into her biased treatment of conservative non profit organizations…Taking the 5th worked for her…it will work for Pres. Trump also…Screw Mueller and his team of Hillary misfits…If Mueller has the goods on Trump then let him come out with it…Naturally the MSM will run wild with reports that Trump is guilty as sin…the question no one has answered is “guilty of what”?…Where’s the crime?…Where’s the evidence?…Mueller has been poking around for a year and a half hoping to find the goods on Trump…even if he has to go back to the date of Trumps birth to find something…With which he can proclaim “Gotcha”…
    Mueller will then become the “hero” of the left and he will run for President in 2020…lol..all jokes aside.

    • Tony

      Mueller and his team have found the gold mine they have been searching for. A lawyers dream. They are not going to walk out until they have to.

  • Sharon Krotts

    Another ploy on the Democrats part! What a bunch of spoiled brat liers. I don’t believe anything they throw at him will stick. I’ll be praying for our president!

  • kenbarber

    1st, POTUS can not be indicted. can not be pulled before a grand jury. if muller tries a subpoena, DOJ rules will allow the POTUS to just ignore him. The constitution is on Trumps side. i find the ignorance of senators and prosecutors and yes, the news media of all this to be rather sad.

  • Spunky

    What wishful thinking – the clown

  • Ruth Hammons

    I am so sick of the nonsense and why people cannot just be decent? Our President is working as hard as possible to straighten out the horrific mess to destroy America that Obama and others have place in our way while in office. Obama sitting on his bony rear with feet up on the Lincoln desk in total disrespect for the position he did NOT legally have a right to was ans is one joke for freedom and any honor. What is the matter with so many that can just gripe, but not do anything to help make us a stronger nation again?
    The first step would be to kick out all Democrats and hire in patriots that honor their jobs and this country; that stand for the Constitution and the law of the land!! The left and Dems want us to be communists and One World Governance …is that truly what you fools want? If so, it will not ever matter again who sits in The Chair. Blind and dumb is what this country of people have become…….I am ashamed of the people but NOT this great nation and what we were founded for and on; God, faith, and freedom!
    “If the people who are called by my name, while get on their knees and pray for forgiveness, I will save their nation”
    God Bless President DJ Trump and the nation again, please.
