President Trump's brother trying to stop Mary Trump's family tell-all book

The Daily Beast reported earlier this month that the book will reveal that Mary Trump was the crucial source for explosive NY times reporting on Trump's finances, suggesting the billionaire paid little in tax for decades.

Robert Trump, who is the brother of Mary's late father Fred Trump Jr., is being represented by Charles Harder, an aggressive media lawyer who has represented President Trump personally in other lawsuits.

"Democracy thrives on the totally free trade of tips", Boutrous additional, "and neither this court nor any other has authority to violate the Constitution by imposing a prior restraint on core political speech".

The 240-page book will detail events Mary Trump witnessed as a child while spending time at her grandparents' house in Queens, where her uncle and his four siblings grew up. "The courts will not tolerate this brazen and baseless effort to squelch speech in violation of the First Amendment".

Donald Trump, who also recently failed to convince the legal system to suppress John Bolton's book about his time in the White House, said recently that his niece would be violating the non-disclosure agreement by publishing the book.

Simon & Schuster, the book's publisher, did not respond to a request for comment.

One of Donald Trump's brothers has requested a restraining order to block publication of a potentially explosive book written by the United States president's niece, The New York Times has reported.

"They are pursuing this unlawful prior restraint because they do not want the public to know the truth", he said.

The court's decision, however, is not likely to end the legal matter.

"I am deeply disappointed in my niece Mary's decision to write a book concerning our family", Robert Trump said in a statement.

Adam Rothberg, a spokesman for Simon & Schuster, said the attempt to prevent the book's publication would fail. The agreement included a confidentially clause saying they would maybe not "publish any account in regards to the litigation or their relationship", unless agreed upon by all parties. "You know, when we settled with her and her brother, who I do have a good relationship with - she's got a brother, Fred, who I do have a good relationship with, but when we settled, she has a total. signed a nondisclosure".

The book shows a young, smiling Donald Trump.

Tuesday's filing in New York's Queens County Substitute Court had argued that Mary Trump's book for Simon & Schuster, who was also listed as a defendant, broke a confidentiality agreement.

She nevertheless already wrote it, and as NBC News reported, the president's niece is now facing a court fight ahead of the book's publication.
