Former President Donald Trump is reportedly suing the New York Times and his niece Mary Trump over stories about his tax filings.
According to the Daily Beast, the lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Dutchess County, New York, and accuses the liberal newspaper and the family member of an “insidious plot” to obtain his private records.
It claims that the Times persuaded Ms. Trump to “smuggle records out of her attorney’s office and turn them over to The Times” despite her having signed a confidentiality agreement in 2001.
Mr. Trump’s lawsuit seeks damages “in an amount to be determined at trial, but believed to be no less than One Hundred Million Dollars,” the Daily Beast reported.
Mary Trump lashed out at Trump
“I think he is a fucking loser, and he is going to throw anything against the wall he can,” said Mary Trump of her uncle’s new suit. “It’s desperation. The walls are closing in and he is throwing anything against the wall that will stick. As is always the case with Donald, he’ll try and change the subject.”
