Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, plead the fifth amendment in the lawsuit Stormy Daniels filed against him. Simply put, he doesn’t want to incriminate himself. Bloomberg reports:

“Cohen filed a declaration in federal court in Los Angeles Wednesday after a judge said at a hearing last week that he won’t put the case on hold unless he hears from Cohen himself rather than his lawyers.

Federal investigators are looking, among other things, at the $130,000 Cohen paid Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, in 2016 to guarantee her silence about the alleged affair she had with Trump.”

Daniels’ attorney predicted Cohen would take the fifth a couple weeks back. He reacted to the news late Wednesday saying this development is one for the history books.

Speaking of Trump, this is a good time to remind everyone that he isn’t a big fan of the fifth amendment.
