Don Jr’s wife hires criminal defense lawyer for divorce case as Mueller probe heats up

Published

Donald Trump Jr.’s wife Vanessa has hired a criminal defense attorney to represent her in divorce proceedings.

According to paperwork filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, she has hired White Plains-based lawyer David Feureisen after the couple filed for divorce, reported the New York Post.

The move came the same day news reports revealed special counsel Robert Mueller had subpoenaed business records related to Russia dealings from Trump Organization, which Trump Jr. is overseeing while his father serves as president of the United States.

“Feureisen is best known for securing the release of a New York man named Anthony DiSimone from federal prison in 2007 after a judge overturned a murder conviction related to a bar fight in 1994,” the Post reported.

A Manhattan family law expert told the newspaper that Vanessa Trump’s choice of attorneys was “curious” if the couple’s split was amicable, as they claimed in a joint statement.

“If it’s an amicable situation you wouldn’t be highlighting the criminal aspect,” said legal expert Bonnie Rabin.

The president has been obsessed with undercover recordings by the right-wing Project Veritas outfit that misleadingly suggests an anti-Trump conspiracy by CNN president Jeff Zucker, and he has been privately ranting for days about the audio and video recordings, reported The Daily Beast.

Donald Trump’s big short: Is the president profiting off the market chaos he creates?

Published

Back in early 2018, I noticed something hinky about the confluence of Donald Trump’s blurts about his trade war with the movement of the stock market. As I wrote in this space back in August, I believe Trump or people close to Trump might be profiting off the volatility of the markets ever since the president first declared a trade war against our allies and frenemies alike.

Since the passage of the 2009 stimulus, and with the exception of 2015, the markets have been mostly climbing steadily, in a relatively smooth upward slope. This ascending trajectory continued through the first year of Trump’s presidency until suddenly we began to observe harrowing single-day declines — volatility in the form of precipitous collapses of as much as 1,175 points in the Dow.

Trump Jr. and McGahn didn’t testify before the Mueller grand jury — and a federal judge wants to know why

Published

During the Russia investigation, former special counsel Robert Mueller sought testimony from a long list of people. But according to a court filing on Sunday, two people who Mueller did not force to testify before a grand jury were Donald Trump Jr. and former White House Counsel Don McGahn. And U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell wants to know why.

The court filing on Sunday, according to The Week, was in response to a ruling Howell made on Thursday — when Howell asserted that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was withholding too much information from the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York. The House Judiciary Committee, The Week’s Peter Weber reports, has been “wrangling” with DOJ over the evidence that Mueller obtained during his lengthy investigation.
