Trump subjected to trifecta of sex-scandal lawsuits

Trump to face trifecta of lawsuits

As a candidate, Donald Trump vowed to sue the slew of women accusing him of sexual misconduct. That never happened.

But more than a year after Trump took office, he finds himself the target instead, increasingly enmeshed in litigation related to pre-election efforts to contain stories about his alleged sexual affairs and improprieties — a legal morass seemingly unrelated to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia and the firing of FBI Director James Comey, among other issues.


Trump ignored briefing materials that said not to congratulate Putin

Trump and PutinUS President Donald Trump congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin on his re-election despite the warnings from multiple national security advisers and briefing materials that said "DO NOT CONGRATULATE," The Washington Post reported Tuesday evening.

The Post, citing an unspecified number of officials familiar with the call, said Trump likewise did not listen to aides who gave him talking points to condemn a nerve agent poisoning in the UK, which the US has blamed on Russia.

Former Playboy Model Sues for Right to Speak About Alleged Trump Affair

Former Playbor Model sues Trump to break her silencePlayboy Playmate Karen McDougal is taking a page out of Stormy Daniels' playbook -- suing to throw out a 2016 legal agreement that bars her from speaking about an alleged tryst with Donald Trump.

The 1998 Playmate of the Year is going after American Media Inc. -- which owns The National Enquirer -- claiming she was misled about the company's deal to pay her for her story.

According to the docs ... McDougal didn't seek "hush money" from Trump, but rather thought she was selling her story to the Enquirer for $100k and future appearances in the publication. Instead, she claims her story was buried ... and she didn't get the publicity she was promised.

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher litigation co-chair Theodore Boutrous confirmed in a tweet Tuesday that his partner Theodore Olson will not join the legal team representing President Donald Trump.

Trump legal team seeks to add GOP attorney Theodore Olson

Trump legal team seeing to add Ted Olsed

President Trump's legal team has reportedly reached out to veteran Republican attorney Theodore B. Olson in the hopes of bringing him aboard as they deal with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Olson is reviewing the offer, though he personally declined to comment. He has previously declined an offer to join Trump's legal team.

Olson, 77, served as solicitor general in George W. Bush's administration and as assistant attorney general in charge of the office of legal counsel in the Justice Department from 1981-1984.

The offer to Olson is the latest indication of a shift in how the president's legal team approaches the Mueller investigation.
