Shia claim their Imams did Taqqiyah the whole time, and apparently the Shia also invented narrations where the companions of the Imams would ask them or even beg them not to answer them back using Taqqiyah.
The only problem is, the Shia scholars claimed that even these are Taqqiyah!!!
محمّد بن علي بن الحسين بإسناده ، عن يحيى بن أبي عمران أنّه قال : كتبت إلى أبي جعفر الثاني ( عليه السلام ) : في السنجاب والفنك والخزّ ، وقلت : جعلت فداك أُحب أن لا تجبيبني بالتقيّة في ذلك ، فكتب بخطه إليّ : صلّ فيها .
Muhammad bin ‘Ali bin al-Hussein with his Isnad, from Yahya bin abi ‘Imran that he said: I wrote to abu Ja’far II (as) regarding the squirrel and the fennec fox and the beaver, and I said: “May I be sacrifice for you, I would like it if you did not reply with Taqqiyah in this matter.” So he wrote me with his own hand-writing: “Pray in them.”
(He means while wearing their skin.)

In his book “Minhaj al-Ahkam” pg.47, al-Mirza al-Qummi says:
إن السائل ربما سأل عن حال شيء وقال ما حكم هذا من دون تقية وقال أجب لي بغير تقية فأجابوا بأنه هكذا، وهو أيضاً موافق للتقية
“The questioner may have asked about the condition of a certain matter and said “What is the ruling on this without Taqqiyah?” or “Answer me with no Taqqiyah.” so they (as) would answer that it is so and so, and this also is Taqqiyah.”
