President Donald Trump is facing a new legal battle with his niece Mary Trump who insists she was duped into forfeiting her inheritance following the death of her grandfather, Fred Trump, Sr., and her father, Fred Trump, Jr.

In the New York State Supreme Court lawsuit, filed in Manhattan on Thursday morning, Mary Trump named the president, her aunt, Maryanne Barry Trump, and her late uncle, Robert Trump — who passed away in August of this year. She outlined claims of fraudulent representation, fraudulent inducement, negligent representation, civil conspiracy, and fraudulent misrepresentation and concealment dating back to the "beginning of the 1980s."

How Tax Secrecy Protects Trump — And Hurts You

Reprinted with permission from DCReport

As Donald Trump fights to keep his tax and business records from Manhattan prosecutors it's time to alert Americans that tax returns used to be public. Congress could make them public again. If it did every honest taxpayer would benefit.

In 1924 how much the rich paid the taxman was front-page news. Newspapers back then published lists that revealed who was really rich (John D Rockefeller stands out) and those who were either poseurs claiming great wealth yet paying little tax or were likely tax cheats who failed to report their income fully.

#EndorseThis: Lincoln Project 'Story Hour' Episode Two: The Immigrants

Today we return to the Lincoln Project's "Story Hour" for Episode Two – which features a fresh excerpt from Mary Trump's Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man on the theme of immigration.

Reading the tale of Trump's own immigrant forebears is actor Robert Dobson. He is not amused by the contrast between that family history and the bigoted nativist policies enacted by this administration.

But you will certainly be amused by Mary's skillful trolling of her awful uncle.

#EndorseThis: The Lincoln Project Presents 'Story Hour', With Mary Trump's New Bestseller

This week those scamps at the Lincoln Project launched a new video trolling campaign against Donald Trump that they're calling "Story Hour." The first episode, timed to coincide with an event that is getting deep under Trump's skin, features an excerpt from Mary Trump's runaway bestseller Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man.

Her none-too-flattering phrases are lent a razor edge in the voice of actor Robert Dobson -- who just happens to be a black man with an eloquent voice, elegant clothes, and a large, sinewy physique. He raises a sharp eyebrow too.

Enjoy, because Trump certainly won't.

His Niece’s Book Reveals Donald Trump As Only Family Can

Reprinted with permission from DCReport

Mary Trump's book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man, deserves your close attention. Donald Trump's niece has two advantages that the small band of us who have long studied Trump closely do not.

First, she's family. No one knows you like your family. Your family knows how you behaved at crucial moments when life-changing events occur—births, deaths, weddings, divorces and medical emergencies—as well as mundane events like Saturday breakfast.

Simon & Schuster also released the book's back cover, containing insights into its contents and saying of President Donald Trump: "Today, Donald is much as he was at three years old: incapable of growing, learning or evolving, unable to regulate his emotions, moderate his responses, or take in and synthesize information."
