Michael Cohen to plead the 5th in the Stormy Daniels case

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s long-time personal attorney, is asserting his Fifth Amendment Right against self-incrimination, according to a filing in federal court on Wednesday.

The filing is in a case against Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who allegedly breached a contract when she spoke about having an affair with Trump.

“Based on the advice of counsel, I will assert my 5th Amendment rights in connection with all proceedings in this case due to the ongoing criminal investigation by the FBI and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York,” Cohen declared, under penalty of perjury.

    Not saying that Mueller would do this but (someone) could leak all of Cohen’s info….

    ROTFLMAO – If this was a centrist or leftist lawyer – he’d be slammed by right for taking 5th. Taking the Fifth Amendment is a protection everyone has – but it is funny. I hope I am never in a situation where taking 5th would be the right thing to do. The Right has made taking the 5th a bad thing since the days of the Red Scare. Always makes me think of My Cousin Vinny line when kid says “I shot the clerk!” and police and law can make of that what they want. When put into Bill of Rights it was to protect from law and elites who could and would use anything you say against you.
