Melania Trump’s former chief of staff Stephanie Grisham has a new book coming out and early reports are she will try to make a buck by trashing Melania and others in the administration. Melania is a fighter like her husband so there was no way she was just going to take this.
First, she issued a statement that said: “The intent behind this book is obvious. It is an attempt to redeem herself after a poor performance as press secretary, failed personal relationships, and unprofessional behavior in the White House.”
“Through mistruth and betrayal, she seeks to gain relevance and money at the expense of Mrs. Trump.”
But that was just the warmup act. Next, come the damaging leaks. You see, Stephanie is trying to dupe the Trump-hating liberals into buying her book. She dangles that she has the dirt to bring them down while hinting that she was always against the Trumps.
That type of book sells and the hysterical left would not be able to help themselves. The record is clear on this. But they will not buy a book from someone they deem as ‘complicit’ who is now trying to rewrite history to paint Trump a villain and themselves a hero.
Those books have no audience. So you can expect more leaks like the below as we get closer to the publishing date to keep This tell-all book off the best sellers list.
A senior Trump aide provided text messages to Playbook suggesting that Grisham was sympathetic to — and in one instance tried to assist — efforts to stop the certification of the election in her home state of Arizona.
On Nov. 5, after Arizona A.G. MARK BRNOVICH rebutted claims from DONALD TRUMP supporters that voters who used Sharpies had their ballots improperly disqualified, Grisham forwarded his tweet to a Trump aide and wrote of Brnovich, “Told you. Useless.”
The following week, on Nov. 12, Grisham texted the same aide with a WaPo report about Brnovich telling Fox News there was “no evidence” of fraud that would change the results in Arizona. “Such an ass,” she wrote.
A month later, on Dec. 12, Grisham received a text from a lobbyist in Arizona, GRETCHEN JACOBS. Jacobs wrote that she had spoken with KAREN FANN, a top Republican in the state Senate, and “asked her what would cause her to withhold the electors” needed to certify the results. According to the text, Fann told Jacobs “if we could prove fraud — that would be a game-changer.”
Jacobs then asked Grisham if she could help find $104,000 to hire a political consultant to work on finding evidence of fraud. “I can’t bear that we would lose this over not having $100k to prove what we know is fraud,” the lobbyist wrote to Grisham.
Grisham forwarded the text to the Trump campaign aide and asked, “Any ideas?”
