New York Daily News: Donald Trump Jr.’s wife Vanessa files for divorce

Donald Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa Trump, has filed for divorce. The divorce was listed as “uncontested,” indicating the split was amicable. Nancy Chemtob, who is not involved in the Trump case, said the “uncontested” filing did not guarantee the divorce would remain that way.

The divorce came on the same day The New York Times reported that special counsel Robert Mueller had served subpoenas on the Trump Organization for any internal documents related to Russia. Mueller has also reportedly been looking into a Trump Tower meeting Trump Jr. held with Russians who offered dirt on Hillary Clinton in 2016. Chemtob said it was possible that Mueller’s investigation into interference in the 2016 election played a role in the timing of the divorce. “(Vanessa) may want to distance herself as much as possible from the investigation,” she said. “If this is going to affect her financially, then separating now would be in her best interest.”
