[Ed. – The DOJ interest is in “confidential, deliberative information … related to the president’s official duties,” which it alleges Wolkoff disclosed in the book, in violation of her agreement. Confidential information about some of the First Lady’s activities is also at issue. Wolkoff is the one who released secretly-made audio recordings of Melania when her book came out.]
The lawsuit in federal court in Washington, D.C., asks a judge to order [Stephanie] Winston Wolkoff to surrender any profits from her book, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady,” to a government trust.
[T]he suit … says that Wolkoff had “access to significant confidential information related to the First Lady’s official duties as well as to more private aspects of her role in the First Family.”
The Justice Department also claims that Winston Wolkoff had “indirect access to deliberative information, to which the First Lady was privy, related to the President’s official duties on behalf of the country.”
