How is she getting away with it? How does anyone from the Trump Circle? Why aren't they getting sued or something?

They are getting sued. A lot. Last count was over 50 lawsuits have been filed since his inauguration. By comparison, Bush and Obama had 4 and 5 lawsuits at a similar time in their presidencies.

Sure. They are all getting sued.

But getting sued doesn't mean you don't go to work every day. It just means that every few weeks you have a court date, where you have to go to a room and sit and answer questions for an hour or so. Or just sit and be present.

And in 5 years when the lawsuits have run their course, maybe they'll be penalized financially, and put on probation. (And I guarantee that their legal bills and penalties will be paid for by the RNC or an "unnamed benefactor".)
