Trump claimed the Fifth Amendment 97 times in court to avoid adultery questions

“The mob takes the Fifth Amendment. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

Trump blasts those who take the Fifth, but he used it 97 times on adultery questions.

Pleading the Fifth is a well-known term in the U.S. justice system. The Amendment says American citizens have the right to not incriminate themselves, so those suspected of committing a crime can remain silent rather than deliver testimony.
