Summary

She told NBC News she continued advising the new first lady after the inauguration, then signed the contract in August 2017 to work as a volunteer on her initiative to promote children’s wellbeing, help write speeches, and help advise on her social media presence.She is now being sued by the Justice Department for breaking the confidentiality agreement in the contract by writing her book, “Melania and Me,” a New York Times bestseller that describes the breakdown in their relationship.“I would not have approved this agreement when I was White House counsel,” said Neil Eggleston, who worked for President Barack Obama.In a statement, Winston Wolkoff said, “The president and first lady’s use of the U.S. Department of Justice to silence me is a violation of my First Amendment Rights and a blatant abuse of the government to pursue their own personal interests and goals.”Donald Trump has a long-established pattern of asking employees and business partners of the Trump Organization to sign non-disclosure agreements.
