[quote](CNN)Michael Cohen, the longtime personal attorney for President Donald Trump, filed court papers Wednesday indicating he would assert his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination regarding his involvement in a hush money deal involving porn star Stormy Daniels and the President.

Cohen cited FBI raids of his residence, office and hotel room and the seizure of "various electronic devices and documents in my possession," in his filing in US District Court in Los Angeles.[/quote]

3. Cohen is laying the groundwork for an appeal

The intent is to drag the case out for years and shield Trump from judicial scrutiny as long as possible.

8. So he's telling the court ahead of an appearance that he'll plead the 5th?

I don't understand this ploy.

12. Doesn't invoking the 5th mean that one does not respond to ?s directed to ...

him in order to avoid self incrimination? Does this mean he's guilty indirectly by asserting
this right? I am not up to speed on legal process etc. that this entails, but it's not a good start, considering that he could have entered into a verdict of innocent?

14. He's a much better lawyer than I'd thought!

He not only knew of the existence of the Fifth Amendment, it seems he also used it in the correct context.

Years and years of law school and several swings at the elusive bar exam weren't wasted.
