Donald Trump's former personal lawyer turned nemesis testified to the House Oversight Committee that his former boss grossly inflated his net worth, to the tune of $4 billion, in an attempt to convince the NFL to accept his bid to purchase the Buffalo Bills back in 2014. Trump listed his net worth at $4.55 billion in 2012, but it magically soared to $8.66 billion in 2013 after Trump wrote a line item estimating his "brand value" at over $4 billion.
