Ms Trump is still bound by an agreement she signed in 2001 after an argument about a family inheritance . It was put in place to protect the family's privacy, the New York Times said. But the judge on Wednesday said the agreement could have altered by the fact that Donald Trump has since become president. Earlier this month, President Trump said that his niece was violating her non-disclosure agreement (NDA) by writing a book. "She's not allowed to write a book," he told Axios, referring to a 20- year legal document she reportedly signed in 2001 following a dispute over her father's estate after

Mary Trump on Friday asked a judge to deny Donald Trump’s motion to dismiss the suit, which she filed in September against her uncle and his siblings, Robert Trump and Maryanne Trump Barry.

'Cuomo is an abuser': NY Assemblyman Ron Kim alleges governor threatened him

  'Cuomo is an abuser': NY Assemblyman Ron Kim alleges governor threatened him New York Assemblyman Ron Kim detailed his allegedly threatening phone call with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo after speaking out about COVID-related nursing home deaths. FBI and federal prosecutors in Brooklyn are investigating Cuomo's coronavirus task force with a particular focus on his administration's handling of nursing homes early in the coronavirus pandemic, two sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.

A tell -all memoir written by President Donald Trump 's niece claims that he is a "narcissist" who now threatens the life of every American. She says Trump Sr, a New York City real estate mogul, "destroyed" Donald Trump by interfering in his "ability to develop and experience the entire spectrum of human emotion". "By limiting Donald's access to his own feelings and rendering many of them unacceptable, Fred perverted his son's perception of the world and damaged his ability to live in it," she writes.

President Trump participated in dubious tax schemes during the 1990s, including instances of outright fraud , that greatly increased the fortune he received from his parents, an investigation by The New York Times has found. Mr. Trump won the presidency proclaiming himself a self-made billionaire, and he The president declined repeated requests over several weeks to comment for this article.

The suit by the daughter of Donald Trump’s late older brother, Fred Trump Jr., is one of several serious legal threats the former president faces as a private citizen. If the case in New York state court in Manhattan survives, he could be deposed under oath by the end of the year or early 2022.

The fight may hinge on New York’s statute of limitations, which is two years from the time a victim “discovered the fraud, or could with reasonable diligence have discovered it.” Donald Trump, Maryanne Trump and the estate of Robert Trump, who died in August, argue their niece could have sued much earlier based on documents they handed over in other legal disputes, including a bitter court fight over the family patriarch’s 1999 will.

But Mary Trump, a psychologist and author who wrote a damning tell-all book about the family last year, argues she didn’t discover the alleged decades-old scheme until October 2018, when the New York Times published a Pulitzer Prize-winning report on Donald Trump’s finances. The documents handed over to Mary Trump in earlier legal matters were either unrelated to the alleged fraud or contained false information that couldn’t have tipped her off, she said

Mary Trump argues her uncles and aunt shouldn’t benefit in court just because they successfully duped her for years.

“The offensiveness of defendants’ past conduct -- stealing tens of millions of dollars from their own niece -- is perhaps surpassed only by the chutzpah of their current arguments for dismissal,” Mary Trump said.
