Trump sues NYT, niece Mary over tax reports

Former United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against the New York Times and his niece Mary Trump over a 2018 story on his tax records, the Daily Beast first reported.

The complaint was filed at New York's Dutchess County and it names the three reporters who published a series based on Trump's tax and financial records back in 2018. In the lawsuit, the former president claimed that Susanne Craig, David Barstow and Russell Buettner "engaged in an insidious plot to obtain confidential and highly-sensitive records" and "convinced" his niece to "smuggle records out of her attorney's office and turn them over to The Times."

Last year, Trump challenged the release of a tell-all book about him written by Mary Trump, however, the expose was published on a later note, after being given court approval.
