Mary Trump’s book says the president practices ‘cheating as a way of life’

  Mary Trump’s book says the president practices ‘cheating as a way of life’ Mary Trump’s book, “Too Much and Never Enough,” will be moved up from July 28 to July 14 — even though the president’s family is trying to block the tell-all in court. The publisher said it’s moving up the release date due to “high demand and extraordinary interest.”“[It] is the story of the most visible and powerful family in the world. And I am the only Trump who is willing to tell it,” Mary Trump, 55, writes in an excerpt of the book’s prologue included in Monday’s release.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York prosecutor on Thursday warned against the possibility of letting U.S. President Donald Trump run out the clock on the Manhattan district attorney's criminal probe into Trump and his company.

Carey Dunne, the general counsel for District Attorney Cyrus Vance, spoke at a hearing in federal court in Manhattan to discuss Trump's renewed legal challenge to Vance's effort to seek eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns.

Dunne said there are looming deadlines to prosecute cases from the probe because of statutes of limitations, and more delays could give Trump the "absolute temporary immunity" that courts including the U.S. Supreme Court have rejected.

"Let's not let delay kill this case," Dunne told U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero.

The judge approved a jointly negotiated schedule allowing the president to file an amended complaint challenging the subpoena and its scope by July 27. Vance has agreed not to enforce the subpoena through that date.

The case is Trump v Vance et al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 19-08694.
