Roger Stone Pleads Fifth... And Fundraises Off Trump's Tweet
December 5, 2018

So Roger Stone is pleading the fifth. CNN:

Stone’s letter was sent as Trump tweeted on Monday that Stone had “guts” for saying that he wouldn’t testify against Trump in Mueller’s investigation. But Trump has also been critical of those who invoke the Fifth. “The Mob takes the Fifth. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?” he said at a September 2016 rally.”

“Mr. Stone was surprised by the President’s Tweet yesterday,” Smith told CNN. “This letter … and the one sent in September to the Senate Intel Committee preceded the President’s Tweet in support of Mr. Stone."

Here's the video receipts on exactly what Donald Trump thinks of people who plead the fifth.
