Mark Meadows, the former chief of staff to Donald Trump and a former president of the United States, is being sued by his publisher regarding the substance of his book The Chief’s Chief.
Meadows later told Department of Justice investigators Trump was being “dishonest” when he declared he had won the election, reports All Seasons Press, claiming in its lawsuit that Meadows had promised the publisher that “all statements contained in the Work are true and based on reasonable research for accuracy.”
The context of Meadows’s testimony was the Trump argument concerning the 2020 election.
In Meadows’s book, however, he asserts that “actual evidence of fraud” led to the election being “stolen” and “rigged.”
After 200,000 copies of the book were printed when it was first released in 2021, the publishing house claims that only 60,000 of those copies were sold.
The book is still promoted on the website of All Seasons Press.
The publisher is now requesting the $350,000 that was paid to Meadows in advance, as well as $600,000 in damages and at least $1 million for losses incurred by the company in terms of its reputation as a conservative press and the anticipated earnings of the book.
Meadows served as Trump’s fourth chief of staff until the conclusion of his mandate.
