Like many people who were a part of Donald Trump's Administration, Mark Meadows wanted to make some money off of his experience. So he did what many Trump staffers did and wrote a book. The former White House Chief of Staff was paid a $350,000 advance for his work.
In the book, Meadows claims that the 2020 election was stolen from the former President. The former North Carolina congressman recently received immunity in a federal case against Trump. The publisher is now suing Meadows, saying he misled them.
A statement from All Seasons Press read, "Meadows, the former White House Chief of Staff under President Donald J. Trump, promised and represented that ‘all statements contained in the Work are true and based on reasonable research for accuracy’ and that he ‘has not made any misrepresentations to the Publisher about the Work.'"
The suit continues, "Meadows breached those warranties causing ASP to suffer significant monetary and reputational damage when the media widely reported … that he warned President Trump against claiming that election fraud corrupted the electoral votes cast in the 2020 Presidential Election and that neither he nor former President Trump actually believed such claims."
Meadows's team responded to the suit in a statement that read, "Mr. Meadows is aware of the specious allegations that were published regarding a portion of the book which was taken out of context, and which have already been addressed by both Mr. Meadows and former President Trump in multiple press releases."
