Mary Trump Helped Manhattan DA Track Her Uncle’s Tax Fraud Patterns

Mary Trump, the niece of The Former Guy, gained instant popularity when she released her tell-all memoir “Too Much and Not Enough”. A clinical psychologist, Mary often tweeted insights into her uncle’s behavior during the 2020 presidential campaign, gaining her over a million Twitter followers who seem relieved by her normalcy (she famously said Don Jr was the dumbest of the adult kids). Mary’s unique position also makes her an asset to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, who is now in possession of Donald Trump’s tax returns.

Mary appeared on “The New Abnormal” podcast and told hosts Molly Jong-Fast and Rick Wilson that she gave prosecutors a helping hand in making their case for fraud. While she has not seen Donald Trump’s most recent taxes, she did have access to her grandfather Fred Trump’s tax returns as part of a lawsuit she has filed against her uncle which is still pending.

She suggested those forms will allow prosecutors to compare the numbers for the Trump Organization and look for discrepancies along with property valuations then and now. As Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer told Congress, Trump would often inflate or deflate the values of his properties, depending on the situation.

“The taxes I gave them are old and from my grandfather’s company. So I think [the newly released ones ] will be really helpful in establishing patterns where such patterns actually exist,” Mary explained. She went on to compare her uncle to mobster Al Capone who was finally taken down and convicted by the government for tax evasion in 1931.

“If he goes down because of his taxes, Al Capone-style, I’m all for it,” she said. “And if it’s bad enough, which it’s going to be, I think his ability to stay out of jail decreases significantly.”
