Trump Sues Far-Left Author Bob Woodward For $49 Million For Releasing Interview Recordings

President Trump on Monday sued Bob Woodward for $49 million for releasing recordings of interviews he gave to him in 2019 and 2020.

Toxic RINO Lindsey Graham reportedly brokered the meeting with Trump and Bob Woodward.

Bob Woodward, a far-left author and Washington Post editor, released “The Trump Tapes” audiobook with more than 8 hours of his interviews with President Trump.

Woodward is a Deep State hack and has been an FBI asset since the 1970s.

Trump said he never agreed to the tapes being released to the public.

Bloomberg reported:

Former President Donald Trump is suing journalist Bob Woodward for releasing recordings of interviews that he gave to the journalist in 2019 and 2020, claiming he never agreed to those tapes being shared with the public.

In a lawsuit filed Monday against Woodward, Simon & Schuster Inc., and the publisher’s parent company Paramount Global, Trump claimed that although he had given Woodward consent to record their conversations “for the sole purpose of a book,” that didn’t extend to packaging those recordings as an audiobook.

“This case centers on Mr. Woodward’s systematic usurpation, manipulation, and exploitation of audio of President Trump,” Trump’s lawyers wrote.

The complaint alleges violations of Trump’s copyright interests and accuses Woodward and the publisher of unjustly profiting from the tapes. Trump is seeking just under $50 million in damages, a figure his lawyers calculated assuming Woodward would sell two million copies of the audiobook at a download price of $24.99.

Trump participated in 19 interviews in-person or by phone with Woodward between December 2019 and August 2020, as well as in 2016 when he was still a candidate, according to the complaint. Woodward’s book, Rage, was published a month after the last interview. In October 2022, Simon & Schuster released the audiobook of the recordings, The Trump Tapes.

Recall, CNN went ballistic last October because Trump supposedly gave Bob Woodward ‘classified information’ – of course Woodward was never able to verify the so-called classified information.

“I have built a weapons system that nobody has ever had in this country before,” Trump said. “We have stuff that you haven’t even seen or heard about.”

Trump continued, “We have stuff that Putin and Xi have never heard about before. Getting along with Russia is a good thing, it’s not a bad thing, alright? Especially because they have 1,332 nuclear fucking warheads.”

“It’s funny, the relationships I have, the tougher and meaner they are, the better I get along with them. You know? Explain that to me someday, okay. But maybe it’s not a bad thing.”

CNN melted down over Trump’s statement to Woodward then admitted the reporter was never able to verify the information.

“So just to clarify, Woodward was never able to verify whether this system exists,” CNN’s Jamie Gangel said.
