Melania Trump’s Lawyers Admit She Wanted To Cash In On Being First Lady By Selling Clothes And Accessories
Melania Trump’s lawyers admitted in court documents that she had hoped to cash in on being First Lady by selling clothes and fragrances. Melania filed a defamation lawsuit against the Daily Mail for alleging that she was an escort at some time. She was required to show proof that she was damaged in some way by it.
According to the NY Post, the Daily Mail caused so much financial harm, Melania Trump alleges she could no longer use her position in government to enrich herself:
“Plaintiff had the unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, as an extremely famous and well-known person… to launch a broad-based commercial brand in multiple product categories, each of which could have garnered multi-million dollar business relationships for a multi-year term during which plaintiff is one of the most photographed women in the world. These product categories would have included, among other things, apparel, accessories, shoes, jewelry, cosmetics, hair care, skin care and fragrance.”
Melania Trump is asking for $150 million in damages in her filing at the Manhattan Supreme Court.
Looks like Donald Trump is also clueless about this lawsuit as it is literally offering a smoking gun to anyone. The Emoluments Clause is a U.S. government law that specifically prohibits any leader from using government services to enrich the president and his family.
