'It's Taken Over My Life': Ex-Melania Friend Working With Prosecutors On Inauguration Probe

Source: Talking Points Memo

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former close friend to first lady Melania Trump, claimed on Monday that she is working with three prosecutors in their investigations into the Trump inaugural committee.

“I’m working with three different prosecutors, and it’s taken over my life,” she told ABC News in a pre-taped interview.

Those would be the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, along with the attorneys general in New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

Winston Wolkoff was an adviser to the inaugural committee, which spent a jaw-dropping $104 million on the event after raising more than $107 million. Her ABC News interview is part of her media tour to promote her tell-all book, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady.”

1. Do tell! Did get suckered into running scams?

Had to get an immunity deal...not that the investigation is going anywhere with Barr replacing US attys.

5. This may be the woman who ages ago reported that she saw that Ivanka had jacked up

All the prices at Trump Intl during the inauguration. She confronted Ivanka that this was a questionable situation, but got nowhere.

6. Yes, that's her. She refused to go along with the money grab.

This woman isn't just a socialite friend of Melania. This woman was in charge of the Met Gala for a decade, and not a penny was squandered. She wasn't about to take the fall or even risk her reputation for the Trump Crime Family.
From Wikipedia:
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff (née Batinkoff) is an American fashion and entertainment executive and former senior advisor to First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump. Prior to her role in politics, she produced various notable events in New York City, including the Met Gala, and later worked as the founding fashion director for Lincoln Center and facilitated the expansion of its Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
