Trump reverses plan to plead 5th after 7-hour deposition from far-left NY AG Letitia James

On Thursday, Donald Trump arrived in Manhattan for a deposition with New York Attorney General Letitia James. The AG alleged in her lawsuit against the former president that he and three of his children engaged in fraudulent business practices.

While Trump plead the fifth hundreds of times during his first deposition, this time around he was “eager to testify” and ended up doing so for seven hours.

According to the Daily Mail, Trump's lawyer Christopher Kise said that during his hours-long deposition, the former president boasted about the success of his businesses.

Kise parroted his clients sentiments saying, “The transactions at the center of this case were wildly profitable for the banks and for the Trump entities,” and that “when the facts of this success, and not politically engineered soundbites, are out in the open, everyone will scoff at the notion any fraud took place.”
