Donald Trump Junior is in trouble. According to a report from The New York Post’s Page Six, Vanessa Trump hired a legal representative who is an expert in the law relating to criminal defense. However, the hiring of the lawyer is more likely due to Trump’s alleged involvement in a corruption scandal rather than because of their divorce.
As you may know, Donald Trump Junior found himself involved with the Russia scandal investigated by the special counsel, Robert Mueller.
Page Six reported that David Feureisen would represent Vanessa in a court of law. This news comes after Vanessa, and Donald’s divorce surfaced in the media.
Neena Tankha, who frequently works as a celebrity divorce lawyer, explained to People Magazine that her choice in the lawyer was not typical for a divorce, indicating – as it was mentioned at the beginning of the article – that Vanessa is getting ready to be involved with the Mueller investigation.
However, Tankha said these connections are “misplaced,” because “marital communications privilege survives the termination of the marriage.”
In other words, Vanessa will still have to testify in court regardless of her marriage to Trump, whether they’re legally separated or not. Some have speculated that the divorce is merely a sham, so she doesn’t have to appear before a court and jury.
President Donald Trump said after he won the presidential election in 2016, that politics was a nasty game which creates a lot of trouble. It appears that may be the case, as his administration has hurt his family in the cross-fire.
In addition to Junior and Vanessa’s separation, Trump has come under fire for allegedly sleeping with a porn star, Stormy Daniels, while he was married to Melania Trump. Daniels claims that she was paid “hush-money” to keep quiet about the supposed affair during the election campaign.
