Donald Jr. and Vanessa Trump are definitely getting divorced. Also, the Trump Organization, which is led by Don Jr., was subpoenaed by Robert Mueller for documents. These two things, despite happening very close to one another time-wise, are totally separate, right? Well, maybe not.
Because of the timing of the two announcements, some people are wondering if maybe Vanessa and Don Jr. are getting divorced so that he can give his financial assets to his wife, making sure that they won't be seized no matter what ends up happening with Mueller.
According to a lawyer interviewed by Bill Palmer, it is not unheard of for people to divorce before potentially having their assets seized. Another interesting fact is that the story of Vanessa and Don Jr.'s divorce was run as an exclusive by Page Six, which is part of the New York Post. And the New York Post is very Trump-friendly. So it seems as if they wanted that news out there. Just saying.
But who knows. Maybe their marriage hadn't been going well for a while. After all, he seemed to spend a lot of time sleeping on the couch.
