President Trump says his niece’s lawsuit against the family is full of « conspiracy theories » – and only part of a plan to make money from the famous family name, according to new court records.
In a lawsuit in September, Mary accused Trump, his sister Maryanne and his late brother Robert for cheating on them out of tens of millions of dollars in inheritance money.
Trump and the executor for Robert’s estate are calling on the judge to dismiss the lawsuit. They claim it is statute-barred and « full of conspiracy theories that fit a Hollywood script more than a lawsuit, » according to court files filed Monday.
Mary, who also fought her family in court earlier this year, to Publishing her scrapbook claimed her aunt and uncle wanted her to cross out of their inheritance after the death of their father Fred Trump Jr. in 1981 and later grandfather Fred Trump Sr. in 1999.
She claimed the trio did Withdrawing money from their inherited business interests and disguising the transfers as legitimate business transactions. Then, she claims, they made their interests appear less than they really were through false appraisals and financial reports – before using threats to sign an agreement that she will cut from her grandfather’s estate.
But Trump retaliated, claiming that Mary invented « a decades-long sinister conspiracy » in which she referred to « herself as the ignorant and unsophisticated victim » when she actually « orchestrated an elaborate plan to seek retribution for decades old, to demand previously litigated family grievances in order to promote their own. » political agenda and money from her family name, « the court documents claim.
The president claims in the new documents that his niece’s suit is an attempt to » get a second bite on the apple « at a time in of « political prejudice » persist against her aunt and uncle, even though she was fully aware of the agreement she signed when she settled with her grandfather’s estate in 2001.
Trump camp says it is insincere for Mary to be claim they discovered the alleged scheme only after a New York Times story on the subject was published in October 2018, as Mary was the one who provided the paper with the documents for the story.
« To At no time was [Mary] forced to give up her interests in the family business during this lawsuit, « the court record reads.
Mary’s attorney Roberta Kaplan said in a statement, » Although Mar y Trump is certainly not a fan of Donald Trump or his administration’s policies, this case is about family fraud.
« And the Trump sibling’s argument that Mary’s complaint is late makes no sense, given the fact that the Trumps were involved in such wrongdoing only recently due to important reporting by journalists in the New York Times and elsewhere came to light. «
