Former President Donald Trump sued The New York Times, three of its reporters, and his niece Mary on Tuesday over the Times’ story on his leaked tax documents.
Trump’s lawsuit accuses the Times of coercing his niece into illegally providing the paper with his tax documents. Damages sought from both the Times and his niece are “to be determined at trial, but believed to be no less than One Hundred Million Dollars,” the suit says according to The Daily Beast.
“More to come, including on other people, and Fake News media,” Trump told the Beast in a statement on the lawsuit.
Mary Trump and the Times both dismissed the former president’s lawsuit.
“I think he is a f***ing loser, and he is going to throw anything against the wall he can,” Mary Trump said. “It’s desperation. The walls are closing in and he is throwing anything against the wall that will stick. As is always the case with Donald, he’ll try and change the subject.”
