Trump Considers Suing His Niece Over Her Tell-All Book, Saying She Signed an NDA

  Trump Considers Suing His Niece Over Her Tell-All Book, Saying She Signed an NDA This past Sunday, news broke that the president’s niece, Mary Trump, was on track to publish a “harrowing and salacious” book this summer about her world-famous uncle. By Sunday night, the president had been privately briefed on what he could expect from the upcoming book. By Tuesday, he had begun discussing siccing his lawyers on his niece. According to two people familiar with the situation, Donald Trump has told people close to him that he’s getting his lawyers to look into the Mary Trump matter, to explore what could be done in the way of legal retribution—or at least a threat—likely in the form of a cease and desist letter.

Trump says Bolton ‘must pay a very big price for this’, with former national security adviser’ s memoir due out Tuesday.

Taking legal action has been a common ploy for President Trump to take against adversaries, but soon it could involve a family member. Veuer’ s Justin Kircher has the story.

President Trump said his niece signed a "very powerful" nondisclosure agreement that would legally block her from publishing a tell-all family memoir set to go on sale later this month.

He told Axios on Friday that Mary Trump is "not allowed" to write her book, which is expected to reveal she is the source of confidential documents disclosed in a blockbuster New York Times investigation into the family's "legally dubious" tax schemes in the 1990s.

The Daily Beast, which first reported the NDA, said Mary Trump signed it following a 2001 settlement following litigation dissipating the estate of Fred Trump, the president's late father. The report also said the president is considering legal action.

  Stephen Colbert Calls Up 'The Big Lebowski' to Settle Trump's Lawsuit Over John Bolton's Book (Video) Stephen Colbert's monologue on Wednesday really tied the room together when he used a reference from "The Big Lebowski" in order to explain why President Trump's lawsuit against John Bolton's new book is never going to work. The Trump administration sued former National Security director Bolton over his new book "The Room Where It Happened" to prevent the book's release next week and even escalated the legal fight. But Colbert said that in every case where the government has tried to prevent someone from publishing what they believe to be classified, they've lost.

“ Trump claims his niece ’ s book would violate the terms of a nondisclosure agreement he had her sign in 2001. Imagine having an NDA with your niece . That’s really all you need to know about someone.”

Three new books are going after President Trump on a personal front. In addition to the Melania biography, his niece Mary Trump has a tell - all Trump ’ s legal team says it violates a non-disclosure agreement signed in 2001 to settle an inheritance lawsuit. The administration is also suing to block the

Trump claimed the NDA "covers everything" and hinted that some members of his family, including his brother Robert, are upset with Mary's plans to publish a book.

The memoir will also accuse Trump of having "dismissed and derided" his father when he started to suffer from Alzheimer's. The president said this is "totally false" and "a disgraceful thing to say."

Trump has been briefed on what could expect from Mary Trump's forthcoming book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man, slated to arrive July 28.

The publisher, Simon & Schuster, declined comment to Axios.
