Recently, the Department of Justice withdrew a lawsuit it had filed during the Trump administration which alleged that a former top aide to Melania Trump had violated a White House nondisclosure agreement when she published a tell-all book about the former first lady.
As the Washington Post reports:
“The department’s Civil Division gave no reason for the decision to voluntarily dismiss the suit, brought in October, against Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, author of “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady.” The lawsuit filed under the Trump administration had also sought to seize the profits of Wolkoff’s book.
“A Justice Department official did not elaborate, saying, ‘The Department evaluated the case and concluded that dismissal without prejudice was in the best interests of the United States based on the facts and the law.'”
The longtime friendship between Wolkoff and Melania soured when the Trump administration tried to suggest that Wolkoff had received $26 million for helping plan the inauguration. The Trump inaugural committee raised hundreds of millions of dollars but has so far been unable to account for how all of the funds were spent, which is required under federal law.
After the DOJ made their announcement, Wolkoff went on Twitter and made the Trumps aware that she has plenty of potential dirt on them and she’s about to start using it:
Sounds like Wolkoff is about to get some payback against Melania and others in the Trump family. Good for her!
