This is Daniel Goldman:
He’s a lawyer and is running for Congress.
He Tweeted this:
The Fifth Amendment ensures that people are not forced to incriminate themselves.
But you don’t take the Fifth if you didn’t do anything wrong. https://t.co/xIKupKNMSo

Griffin v. California (1965) is very explicit that you cannot infer guilt because the defendant refuses to testify or that silence is evidence of guilt.
If a prosecutor said this in court the defense would move for an immediate mistrial and it would probably be granted.
But this fucking piece of shit throws that legal principle out the window because he’s a Democrat and it’s Trump who’s pleading the Fifth.
These people don’t believe in the principles of the law, only using the law as a tool to destroy their opponents.
This fuck should be disbarred for that Tweet.
