Author Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, pictured, told The Washington Post, “Neither Melania and I have used emails from the White House.”
Melania Trump regularly used private email accounts in the White House to discuss state visits and government recruitments, a former friend claims.
Author Stephanie Winston Wolkoff recounted The Washington Post: “Both Melania and I haven’t used emails from the White House.” The first lady is said to have used a private email account from the Trump organization and an email from a MelaniaTrump.com domain, as well as iMessage.
Winston Wolkoff’s upcoming memoir, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady,” is the first book written by a former member of the first lady’s inner circle.
On Tuesday, Winston Wolkoff admitted to recording her conversations with Melania, but defended this, saying she was doing it for “protection.”
Winston Wolkoff was an unpaid White House adviser to the first lady until February 2018, when her contract was terminated because of questions about the inaugural expenses.
In 2018, The Washington Post reported that Ivanka Trump sent hundreds of emails about government affairs to White House aides, cabinet members, and her assistant from a personal email account.
Ivanka rejected any comparison to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of private email, prompting an FBI investigation and inspiring the ‘Lock Her Up’ chant at Donald Trump’s campaign rallies in 2016.
The use of personal emails is allowed, but it is illegal to discuss anything classified.
Messages reportedly sent by Melania would show her about government recruitments, state visits and schedules, the Easter egg roll, and her Be Best initiative.
Former White House chief ethics attorney Richard Painter said, “It’s total hypocrisy. They were chosen as if Hillary Clinton should be in jail for using the wrong email. ‘
Proof of the existence of ties, said Winston Wolkoff, a former organizer of Vogue events MSNBC: “Melania and the White House had accused me of criminal activity, publicly disgraced and fired me, and made me a scapegoat.
‘At that moment I pressed record.’
On Tuesday, Winston Wolkoff admitted to recording her conversations with Melania, pictured with her husband on the White House’s South Lawn on the fourth day of the Republican National Convention last week, but defended this, saying she did it for “ protection. ‘.
Previous revelations to come out of her bombshell book include details of how Melania reportedly prevented Ivanka from appearing in key photos from the inauguration ceremony.
The 50-year-old first lady is said to have nicknamed her 38-year-old stepdaughter ‘princess’ and call her and her husband Jared Kushner ‘snakes’.
She is also said to have laughed during the 2016 campaign after the infamous’ Access Hollywood ‘tape came out and revealed Donald Trump who said he liked grabbing women at the p ****.’
Wolkoff claims the first lady also mocks Michelle Obama’s tenure. She reportedly once said, ‘Did Michelle Obama go to the border? She never did. Show me the pictures! ‘

The first lady’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, has called the book “ wildly self-aggrandizing ” revenge from a woman who joined the president’s enemies.

Winston Wolkoff has said it was “the worst mistake of my life” to work for Donald Trump and his family.
“When it really mattered, Melania wasn’t there for me,” Ms. Wolkoff wrote her book.
‘She wasn’t really my girlfriend. I actually wish I had never met her, ‘says the author of the first lady, a former fashion model.

Wolkoff left the East Wing in February 2018 after news reports showed that her company, WIS Media Partners, $ 26 million payment for his work on the inaugural.
The company, in turn, spent $ 24 million on subcontractors, a person familiar with the inaugural schedule at the time told DailyMail.com. The source said Wolkoff provided “the whole look and feel – the creative vision” for 18 or 20 inaugural events.

Melania Trump sent her away from the East Wing with an email.
‘I’m sorry that the professional part of our relationship has come to an end, but I feel comfortable that our [friendship] far outweigh[s] politics, ”the first lady wrote. ‘Thanks again! Lots of love.’
