Trump sues his niece Mary and NYT over 'insidious plot' to get his tax records

Donald Trump on Tuesday sued his niece Mary and The New York Times over their reporting on his tax affairs, accusing them of 'an insidious plot' to obtain confidential records and seeking an excess of $200 million in damages. 

The former president filed his case against Mary, the paper and three of its reporters.

In the suit, reported by The Daily Beast, Trump claims that the newspaper convinced Mary Trump to 'smuggle records out of her attorney's office and turn them over to The Times' despite her having signed a confidentiality agreement.  

He is seeking at least $100 million from Mary, and the same amount from the paper.

Mary, 56, the daughter of his late brother Fred, laughed off the suit.

'I think he is a f****** loser, and he is going to throw anything against the wall he can,' she said. 

'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.' 

Even though The Times did not sign a confidentiality agreement, as Mary did, Trump claims that they too are liable because 'their collective efforts in tortiously breaching and/or interfering with his contractual rights and otherwise maliciously conspiring against him' make them liable as well.
