INVESTIGATIONS/TRUMP BUSINESS: “Former President Donald Trump invoked his Fifth Amendment right more than 440 times Wednesday in refusing to answer questions at a deposition by lawyers for New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is investigating the Trump Organization’s business practices…

Trump answered just one question — his name — and then cited the Fifth on every other question he was asked during the deposition, his lawyer Ronald Fischetti told NBC News.

Trump also read aloud a statement in which he called James’ probe ‘the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country,’ and accused the Democratic attorney general of ‘openly campaigning on a policy of destroying me,’ Fischetti said.”
