The president’s niece, Mary Trump, whose easy-to-understand book has already plunged the Trump family into a troubled empire.
The lawsuit was filed in a New York court on Thursday and was obtained by the Daily Beast. The lawsuit alleges that Donald Trump, his sister Marianne Trump Barry of the federal judge, and his late brother Robert Trump were suspected of fraud and conspiracy.
“For Donald J. Trump, his sister Marianne and their late brother Robert, fraud is not only a family business, but a way of life,” the lawsuit was first reported by the US media. New York Times,Start.
Mary Trump claimed in the lawsuit that since the 1
Allegedly, the plan included defrauding taxes, defrauding business partners, and increasing rents for low-income tenants. After the death of Mary Trump’s father Fred Trump Jr. in 1981, Mary was commissioned to be “closer to home”. . 16.
“They did not protect Mary’s interests, but instead devised and executed a complicated plan to steal funds from her interests, cover up her greed, and deceive her about the true value of the property she inherited,” the lawsuit Say.
Many of the allegations in the lawsuit are similar to those in Mary Trump’s July book. Too much and never enough: how my family created the most dangerous person in the world. “Daily Beast” first broke the news of this book, which was caught in a legal dispute before it was released.
But the lawsuit is more detailed than the book, stating that Trump’s siblings “threatened to bankrupt Mary’s interests” and “terminated the health insurance that kept her nephew (a baby with cerebral palsy) alive.”
“They then provided her with a series of fraudulent valuations and so-called settlement agreements, and forced her to sign. All in all, they let her swindle tens of millions of dollars or more.
The lawsuit seeks to recover the millions of dollars that Mary Trump claimed to have lost, detailing three “fraudulent plans against Mary” that are not only illegal, but also “built with each other.” The plan is detailed in three parts of the lawsuit: “complaining”, “devaluation” and “squeezing”.
Mary Trump said in a statement to The Daily Beast on Thursday: “My father passed away when I was a teenager. My uncles Donald and Robert and Aunt Marianne were supposed to be my trustees and The trustee comes to protect me.”
“Recently, I learned that they are not protecting me, but stealing from me through secret cooperation, telling me the value of the inherited property through lies, and asking me to spend a small portion of everything and betray my true Value. I brought this case to hold them accountable and get back everything I deserve.”
The lawsuit alleges that after the accidental death of Mary Trump’s father in 1981, Mary and her brother did not know the value of the minority shareholder rights they suddenly acquired in the Trump property empire.
Because of her age, a lawyer named Irving Deben, who had served in Trump World for many years, was appointed as her trustee.
However, according to the lawsuit, Du Ben’s role as Mary’s trustee is “undisputedly contradictory” and often stays with other family members out of his own interests. She claimed that he “eventually acquiesced” to Trump’s siblings during the campaign to “squeeze her out of the family business completely.” Du Ben died in 2016.
The lawsuit pointed out that by the 1990s, Donald Trump and his siblings were “manipulating and controlling” the family’s empire, while Fred, who was only 90 years old at the time, was fighting Alzheimer’s disease.
The lawsuit stated that his decline gave siblings “a chance to profit from impending death.” “Although they competed with each other at first, the strangeness of the palace reminds people of the HBO series succession-finally [they] Working together, they consolidated their own strength and improved their own interests, at the expense of everyone else including Mary. “
The lawsuit alleges that in 1991, Donald Trump secretly invited Durben to draft a will or a supplement to his will, giving the future president “full control” of his father’s property. However, after the patriarch rejected the will, the lawsuit claimed that Maryanne, now a federal judge, “done the job” by obtaining the revised will and appointed her and her brother as the father’s estate execution people.
According to the lawsuit, this newly discovered power allowed them to design and implement these three programs. These plans include allegedly stealing value from Mary Trump’s interests to entities they already own, reducing the value of their interests through the use of fraudulent assessments and financial statements, and allegedly threatening to bankrupt her interests and cancel them. After the medical policy, the niece was forced to sign a settlement agreement. .
Allegedly, these plans were implemented after 1995, when senior Fred Trump’s will will be executed, with the purpose of allowing Trump and his siblings to control the real estate empire.
In a particularly glaring example of a sibling seizure of power, the lawsuit described a meeting between Robert Trump and his niece at the Drake Hotel in Manhattan in 1999. Robert Trump allegedly threatened to bankrupt Mary’s interests if she did not comply with the siblings. Request and point out that they will “allow you to pay taxes for the rest of your life.”
Despite the threats, the lawsuit alleges that Mary Trump and her brother Fred Trump III are still fighting with their families. On March 23, 2000, the brothers and sisters challenged the grandfather’s will. However, according to the recent lawsuit, this only “reduces” the pressure on her aunt and uncle.
The lawsuit pointed out that under Marianne’s suggestion, the family cut off medical insurance payments to Mary Trump with “unfathomable cruelty”. Eventually, as Mary Trump’s legal fees and family pressure began to increase, Donald Trump and his siblings “take advantage of the opportunity to squeeze [Mary] “It’s all in her interest,” telling her that they will not resolve the dispute unless she gives up her own interests.
Even then, the siblings still provided their niece with false financial statements and “the valuation is full of deliberately false information” in an attempt to reduce the amount they must pay to buy her out.
“Through each of the above programs, [the siblings] The lawsuit alleges that this not only deliberately deceived Mary what did not belong to her, but also kept her in the dark.
Since Donald Trump became president, the divisions within the Trump family have intensified. Robert Trump died in August and she sued Mary Trump to stop publishing the book, which sold 1 million copies in its first week of release.
The president called his niece “unstable”. In turn, clinical psychologist Mary Trump (Mary Trump) released part of her secret recordings made with Maryanne Trump Barry in 2018 and 2019, hearing criticisms from federal judges president.
