Trump Lawyers Gearing Up For Fight With The New York Times

Lawyers representing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sent a letter to The New York Times threatening a lawsuit after the paper published several pages of Trump’s 1995 tax returns.

The Manhattan mogul tapped Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman, a leading litigation firm whom he’s lavished with praise in the past, to lead his response.

Marc Kasowitz, a veteran litigator, told the Times he would execute “prompt initiation of appropriate legal action” should they publish Trump’s returns. He said that Trump had not authorized the release of his tax returns and their publication would therefore be unlawful.

The firm has represented Trump in various capacities since 2001, according to The American Lawyer. The firm was retained to restructure $1.3 billion in bondholder debt after his Atlantic City casinos shuttered, and again in a defamation suit brought against the ghostwriter of “TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald,” for suggesting his net-worth was less than $1 billion.

They will leave them along. MSM (CNN/PMSNBC) think they just got ol' Trump with the 2005 video via Access Hollywood.

Silly CNN/PMSNBC, thinking the public will actually care as they beat the hell out of this one.

Its already over Libs...start packing, your destiny is already in concrete!
