Trump declines to answer questions in NY AG probe

Former United States President Donald Trump declined to answer questions on Wednesday in the investigation of his business dealings led by New York Attorney General Letitia James by invoking his Fifth Amendment rights.

"Under the advice of my counsel and for all of the above reasons, I declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States Constitution," Trump concluded in an official statement.

Trump's decision to invoke the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution comes two days after the FBI raided his home in Palm Beach, Florida. Commenting on the raid, Trump argued that President Joe Biden was familiar with the FBI's plans before the event.
