Donald Trump Sues New York Times and His Niece Over Tax Story

Source: Daily Beast

Former President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against The New York Times, three of its reporters, and his niece—claiming they hatched an “insidious plot” to obtain his private records for a story about his tax history.

“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.”

The Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the suit.

15. Apparently the lawyers he hired for this suit were found in the sale section of "Lawyers R Us"

Rachel Maddow was killing herself laughing at the end of her show because the complaint apparently says "..defendant's (Mary Trump) brazeness cannot be understated"

Brazeness may not be the word used, but it was along those lines & the keyword is "understated" and I think she said it was on the first page of the complaint.

23. We shall see.

America is, as you may have noticed, full of idiots, and I have little faith left in its institutions.

However, I think McConnell has a plan to put Trump out to pasture, and it's well underway.

31. OK, well, we shall see.

I hate McConnell with the heat of a 1000 Suns, but I am pretty sure he's intelligent and strategic. See: Merrick Garland, Amy Coney Barrett.

He's done nothing for Trump since 11/2/20 beyond voting against his impeachment. The Dotard has been put out to pasture and is too dumb to know it yet.

35. Mary is DEFINITELY not intimidated!

From the Daily Beast story:

“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.”

42. She probably also holds him responsible for the death of her father.

Reportedly, Fred Jr. was bullied by Fred Sr. and Donny for his interest in becoming a pilot. No doubt that contributed to his alcoholism and early death.

And the legal documents she provided were her own - obtained from her lawyer's office.

36. Here is a link to the lawsuit

It is filed by a 4 attorney firm from New Jersey that does not list any credentials for the attorneys in the firm



Every firm that I know and all of the big firms list the credentials of the attorneys such as which law schools attended and any honors/publications

I read the petition and I suspect that this is a contingent fee case where TFG is not paying the attorneys. This is a bad contingent fee case in that most of the issues may be resolved in a summary judgement on the enforcablity of NDA

50. To sue the New York Times and his niece, Trump turned to a low profile attorney from New Jersey

WOW, Marc E. Kasowitz is no longer representing TFG. Kasowitz is a major league asshole who has been represent TFG for a very long time. My son was involved in a dispute with Kasowitz in a commercial loan type transaction and was not impressed. For Kasowitz to leave TFG is a big deal




Earlier this month, one of former president Donald Trump’s best-known attorneys — veteran litigator Marc E. Kasowitz — withdrew from a case where Trump had been sued for defamation.....

It’s unclear why Kasowitz stopped representing Trump in the defamation case, which was brought by former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos, or how Trump chose Habba to represent him in that suit and the one against the Times. Neither Trump nor Habba responded to requests for comment Wednesday.....

In the past, Trump turned to a different attorney, Charles Harder, for lawsuits against media outlets. Harder was known for representing wrestler Hulk Hogan in a lawsuit against the website Gawker, which resulted in a $140 million judgment and the bankruptcy of the site. Harder told The Post on Wednesday that he was no longer working for Trump, but otherwise declined to comment.

In recent weeks, three of Trump’s high-profile attorneys have withdrawn from cases where they represented him or his family. None offered a public explanation.

In addition to Kasowitz, Marc Mukasey — who had previously represented Trump’s foundation and business — withdrew from a case where he was defending Eric Trump against inquiries from the New York attorney general. Mukasey declined to comment.

Joanna Hendon, of the firm Alston and Bird, had defended Trump against a lawsuit that alleged he defrauded customers by endorsing a scheme to market video phones. But Hendon — who had represented Trump since 2018 — withdrew in August, saying in a court filing that the change had been Trump’s decision.

Trump replaced her firm with a much smaller one, Robert & Robert, located in the Long Island town of Uniondale, N.Y. Robert & Robert lists five attorneys on its website. In that case, neither Trump’s old attorneys nor his new ones responded to requests for comment Wednesday.

TFG is losing his few competent attorneys and replacing them with small law firm types. The new attorney in the NYT/Mary Trump case is with a 4 person firm who does not list which law schools their attorneys attended in part because the lead partner is from a tier 4 law school.

TFG is hurting
