But Manhattan family law expert Bonnie Rabin told Page Six that choosing Feureisen as an attorney is a “curious choice if it’s an amicable separation. If it’s an amicable situation, you wouldn’t be highlighting the criminal aspect.”

The Trump family is under fire and Special counsel Robert Mueller recently subpoenaed the Trump Family business, which Don Jr. is in charge of – in an on-going investigation into President Trump’s ties to Russia.
