Former president Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against the New York Times, three of its reporters and his niece Mary on Tuesday, accusing them of hatching an "insidious plot" to obtain "confidential and highly-sensitive records" for a 2018 investigative report published by the paper which detailed allegations that Trump had "participated in dubious tax schemes." The suit, filed in Dutchess County, New York alleges that the New York Times convinced Mary Trump to smuggle records out of her attorney's office and turn them over to the newspaper. According to the suit, Mary Trump carried out these alleged actions despite having signed a confidentiality agreement in 2001 as part of a settlement to a legal dispute around the will of Frederick Trump, the former president's father and Mary's grandfather.
