Trump sues New York Times and his niece over tax report

The suit, filed in New York’s Dutchess County, alleges NYT journalists “engaged in an insidious plot to obtain confidential and highly-sensitive records” and that they “convinced” Mary Trump to “smuggle records out of her attorney’s office and turn them over to The Times.”

Of note: Trump challenged the release of a book by Mary Trump on him last year, telling Axios’ Jonathan Swan she was “not allowed” to write it due to a non-disclosure agreement she signed. A judge ruled publisher Simon & Schuster did not seem bound by this.

Trump alleges in his suit against the NYT and his niece that she “committed a material breach of the Settlement Agreement by disclosing, assisting and/or providing confidential information to The Times.”
