The division stated that Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who printed the book”Melania and Me” a month, had dedicated to not disclose info regarding President Donald Trump’s spouse that has been gleaned from her place as a White House volunteer.
Even though Wolkoff, who worked on an outstanding basis for Melania through 2017-2018, wasn’t a federal employee, ” the lawsuit says she signed an enforceable”contract” known as a gratuitous services arrangement.
In that arrangement, she had been”specifically banned from publishing, copying or divulging any such information to any person or entity in whole or in part”
She was prohibited from profiting on which she discovered at the White House, with no acceptance of White House attorneys, the lawsuit said.
It portrays a far more energetic and critical Melania than generally known, and portrayed as a bitter rival of Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka, labeling her husband Jared Kushner as”snakes”
Wolkoff dropped out using the Trumps above a scandal linked to countless dollars which went unaccounted for in the president’s inauguration in January 2017, which she helped arrange.
Communications and documents from Wolkoff are mentioned as proof that led to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims Wolkoff wasn’t free from her duties to submit the publication to Melania Trump and White House attorneys after she stopped working there.
While the Justice Department cautioned Wolkoff and her writer Simon & Schuster in July of the potential breach of her arrangement, it didn’t do it until after the book had been released.
The litigation seeks to capture all of Wolkoff’s gains from the publication.
