Trump Sues His Niece And The New York Times For The Insidious Plot To Violate A 2001 Confidentiality AgreementOctober 5, 2021
Former President Trump may not live in the White House, but he continues to live in the minds of his loyal followers. Mr. Trump lost some of his faithful after January 6, but millions of Americans think Mr. Trump should run again. Some of his followers still believe he is the commander-in-chief, according to the Washington Post.
Mr. Trump is a lawsuit addictive, according to the New York Times. Mr. Trump played a role in more than 3,500 lawsuits during his business career. According to several reports, Mr. Trump learned how to use the legal system as a bullying tactic in his business dealings. The former president makes sure he has enough legal experts around him who can do his bidding before a judge. Mr. Trump won many of those lawsuits, but he also had to pay when he lost.
At last count, 16 different new Trump lawsuits are on the books. Trump may face civil and criminal charges in New York. Attorney General Letitia James is in the process of gathering the facts she needs to convince the court of Mr. Trump’s guilt. Ms. James started working on Trump cases more than two years ago.
Mr. Trump faces several lawsuits that claim he plays the main role in the January 6 Capitol riot. More than 600 people face charges for participating in that debacle. And Congress started an investigation into the genesis of that threat to democracy. Mr. Trump watched the riot on TV, but he declined to stop the violent fiasco, and that behavior raised a lot of eyebrows.
Mary Trump is on a mission to put her uncle behind bars. Ms. Trump is a phycologist who believes her uncle is a psychopath and narcissist. Mary is on a mission to bring her uncle down for cheating her out of her father’s inheritance. She decided to speak about statements in a 2001 confidentiality agreement after talking to an NYT reporter. Mr. Trump wants to stop her from violating the agreement. But a judge ruled the agreement was full of legal holes.
Mr. Trump’s new lawsuit names Mary. But it also names the New York Times and three reporters. Trump’s lawyers claim Mary, the New York Times, and the three reporters developed an insidious plot to get documents sealed by the 2001 agreement. The amount Trump wants to collect from the lawsuit is still unclear. But some reports claim he wants at least $100 million.
