DIVORCE: DONALD TRUMP JR. AND WIFE VANESSA EXPECTED TO FILE FOR DIVORCE – 13 YEARS MARRIAGE, 5 CHILDREN
( Daily Mail ) A somber Vanessa Trump was spotted stepping out in new York City on Wednesday shortly after news broke that she and husband Donald Trump Jr would soon be filing for divorce.
Vanessa and her oldest daughter Kai were photographed as they left a pharmacy, with the mother at one point reaching over and putting her arms around the 10-year-old girl as they headed home.
She and Don Jr. have been married for 13 years and have five children – Kai (10), Donald III (9), Tristan (7), Spencer (5) and Chloe (3).
Vanessa and Don Jr have yet to respond to requests for comment.
Page Six reports that sources close to the pair have said that the two are leading separate lives, and have been for some time.
‘The problems have been there for a long time, the couple had hoped to stay together during the president’s time in office, but it is getting harder to resolve their issues,’ said one source.
‘He’s never there.’
The two have been spotted together less and less in recent months, and spent almost no time with one another over the holidays at Mar-a-Lago.
Don Jr posted a number of videos to social media during the two weeks that the pair were in Palm Beach which showed him with the couple’s children but never Vanessa.
Vanessa was also absent from one of the family dinners and did not attend the annual New Year’s Eve gala, with Don Jr. instead taking his son Donnie.
It was also his birthday that night.
Fox News reports:
A Massachusetts man was arrested Thursday morning after a letter with white powder was sent to Donald Trump Jr.’s New York City apartment earlier this month. Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa, was taken to the hospital in the incident.
Daniel Frisiello, of Beverly, was arrested and is expected to appear in federal court in Worcester later in the day.
Frisiello is accused of sending five letters filled with white powder to Trump Jr. and several other people, including the office of Sen. Debbie Stabenow, of Michigan.
Donald Trump Jr’s wife Vanessa Trump was hospitalized Monday morning after opening a letter with a white powder inside.
The former model, 40, was at her parents’ apartment in a building in the east 50s around 10am when she opened the letter addressed to her husband and started coughing and felling nauseous, a source with direct knowledge of the incident told DailyMail.com
Trump’s mother Bonnie Haydon handled the letter before passing it on to her daughter, according to the New York Post.
The mother and daughter and another person were decontaminated and taken to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center as a precaution, New York City Fire Department officials said. They appear to be fine now.
Law enforcement sources told the Post that the powder turned out to be cornstarch.
President Trump’s peresonal lawyer, Michael Cohen, weighed in with a statement of his own.
‘How disturbed must a person be to do what they did to a mother of five young children? This dangerous and reckless act goes beyond political differences,’ Cohen said according to the Post.
( Daily Caller ) Notes taken by former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort during the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting refer to “Russian adoptions by American families,” according to a transcript of a Senate Judiciary Committee interview released this week.
The notes provide the first contemporaneous evidence that shows that Russia’s adoption policy was discussed during that June 9, 2016 meeting, which members of the Trump campaign attended along with a Russian government lawyer and Russian-American lobbyist.
The notes, portions of which were revealed to Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson during his Aug. 22 Senate Judiciary Committee interview, also appear to make no overt reference to anything resembling collusion.
Many of the meeting attendees — including Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya — have previously claimed that adoption policy was discussed in the meeting, but no evidence had been made public.
…Business Insider first flagged a portion of the transcript which shows Simpson reviewing Manafort’s notes, which he reportedly took on an iPhone.
Simpson, whose firm commissioned the infamous Trump dossier, was showed the notes because at the time of the Trump Tower meeting, he was working with Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist who also attended the meeting.
Simpson’s work with the two Russians dealt directly with the topics that they allegedly discussed with the Trump team.
According to the Senate transcript, Simpson read off several items in the notes, including “Active sponsors of RNC,” “Value in Cyprus as inter,” and “Illici.”
He also identified the phrase “Russian adoptions by American families.”
Tiffany Trump went on a shopping spree at the newly branded Kitson Kitross store in Los Angeles on Tuesday and found the items pertaining to her famous father ‘hilarious!’
The 24-year old Georgetown University law student, who was accompanied by a Secret Service agent, browsed each aisle and asked, ‘Where on earth do you guys find this stuff?’
She ended up purchasing three of the Donald Trump ‘Over Re-action’ figures where the 45th Commander In Chief can be posed with his middle finger up.
‘My Dad couldn’t have this in the Oval Office,’ she mused, ‘But he could have it in his New York one.’

TOO LATE! STEVE BANNON GROVELING APOLOGY TO TRUMP AND DON. JR. – CLAIMS ‘TREASON’ COMMENT WAS FOR PAUL MANAFORT
Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon apologized to President Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr, on Sunday, feeding quotes to the website Axios.
‘I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention from the president’s historical accomplishments in the first year of his presidency,’ the Breitbart head said.
He also explained that when he labeled Donald Trump Jr’s Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer as ‘treasonous,’ he meant for that description to be attached to Paul Manafort, who he said would know better.
‘My comments were aimed at Paul Manafort, a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the Russians operate,’ Bannon explained. ‘He should have known they are duplicitous, cunning and not our friends.’
‘To reiterate, those comments were not aimed at Don Jr,’ Bannon told Axios.
Bannon has found himself isolated from Trumpworld in recent days, as author Michael Wolff’s new book, ‘Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House’ has hit bookshelves.
A Bannon insider told CNN Sunday that the former chief strategist had planned to attack Wolff in a statement, before the president started attacking him.
Bannon was an on-the-record source for Wolff in the book.
In it, Bannon described the 2016 meeting between campaign aides and a group of Russians as ‘treasonous’ and ‘unpatriotic.’
Bannon also predicted that the Russia probe, led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, would focus on money laundering.
DONALD TRUMP JR. RESPONSE TO STEVE BANNON: ‘Unfortunately, he’s an opportunist..turned opportunity into a nightmare of undermining the president ‘
Donald Trump Jr. response to Steve Bannon:
Steve had the honor of working in the White House & serving the country. Unfortunately, he squandered that privilege & turned that opportunity into a nightmare of backstabbing, harassing, leaking, lying & undermining the President. Steve is not a strategist, he is an opportunist
Author Michael Wolff reports that Bannon claimed that Don Trump Jr will “crack […] like an egg” under pressure from the fake Russia investigations.
Bannon went as far as to call Trump Jr’s agreement to meet with a Russian attorney planted by Fusion GPS as “treasonous”.
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”
