Trump says he pleaded Fifth Amendment during New York deposition

Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he invoked his Fifth Amendment rights during a deposition with the New York attorney general's office. "I have absolutely no choice because the current administration and many prosecutors in this country have lost all moral and ethical bounds of decency," Trump said in a statement, invoking the FBI's raid on his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida earlier this week. Trump was set to be questioned under oath Wednesday in New York Attorney General Letitia James's civil investigation into his dealings as a real estate mogul.
