A former top White House aide has reportedly written a secret memoir that may cause quite a bit of "anxiety" in former President Donald Trump's orbit.
Stephanie Grisham, who served as White House press secretary and as chief of staff to former first lady Melania Trump, is set to release a memoir next month, CNN reports. The book has been a "top-secret" project, and it will reveal "surprising new scandals," Axios reported. Grisham, who notably never held a press briefing while she was White House press secretary, resigned in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot.
"Grisham knows where all the bodies are buried because she buried a lot of them herself," a source told Axios, adding that she "has receipts ... she was a press person and it was her job to make sure she knew what was happening."
