AGI – In the US, the Department of Justice has sued Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former friend and former consultant of First Lady Melania Trump, claiming that she violated a confidentiality agreement by publishing the book that tells many anecdotes and private aspects of her relationship with the former Slovenian model.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff is stat close to the First Lady until 2018, when he fell out of favor after the revelations about colossal costs incurred for Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony in January 2017. His book, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship With the First Lady”, is filled with anecdotes and quotes that try to do a little more than light on the First Lady, a figure in many ways enigmatic and who sips her public outings.
The snapshot that comes out is that of a more aggressive woman than it shows, especially towards the daughter-in-law Ivanka. According to the ministry, Melania’s former consultant had pledged not to reveal any information about the president’s wife, collected in the months she spent at the White House: she worked for free, she was not a federal employee, but had signed an agreement anyway “which forbade her to publish, communicate or disclose such information to unauthorized persons or entities “.
The lawyers also asked the seizure of all profits from the book, arguing among other things that Ms. Winston Wolkoff should have presented her work to Melania Trump and White House attorneys prior to its publication.
