Bloomberg News reports:
President Donald Trump was sued by his niece Mary for allegedly conspiring with his brother and sister to defraud her out of part of her inheritance, months after she wrote a damning tell-all book about the family.
Donald Trump, along with his brother Robert and sister Maryannne, failed to follow through on a pledge to “watch over her interests as fiduciaries” after she inherited minority interests in the family business when her father died, according to a complaint filed Thursday in New York.
“They lied,” Mary Trump said in the complaint. “Rather than protect Mary’s interests, they designed and carried out a complex scheme to siphon funds away from her interests, conceal their grift, and deceive her about the true value of what she had inherited.”
