Yet another of Donald Trump’s former White House officials is set to spill the beans with what we can only expect will be a bombshell tell-all book that’s scheduled to hit the shelves next month. Frankly, it’s nothing new for the ex-president and his people. However, it seems as though, for whatever reason, they’re a bit more nervous about what this book may soon tell than they have been with others in the past.
Former White House Secretary and Chief of Staff to then-First Lady Melania Trump, Stephanie Grisham, is slated to publish her tell-all book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw in The Trump White House, on the 5th of October, and we can only imagine that it’s going to be a real humdinger, as the former Trump aide promises to reveal rather telling secrets about her time under the Trump reign of terror. Secrets that are apparently juicy enough to make Donald’s people squirm.
In what appears to be an effort to get out ahead of Grisham’s tell-all opus and discredit her before her book even hits the shelves, one senior aide to the former guy went to POLITICO’s Playbook and provided them with text messages that apparently suggest Grisham went along with conspiracy theories regarding the 2020 presidential election in her home state of Arizona.
POLITICO reports, “On Nov. 5, after Arizona A.G. Mark Brnovich rebutted claims from Donald Trump supporters that voters who used Sharpies had their ballots improperly disqualified, Grisham forwarded his tweet to a Trump aide and wrote of Brnovich, ‘Told you. Useless.'”

Excerpts from Grisham’s upcoming book indicate that she claims to have not believed the conspiracy theories surrounding the election and she allegedly even attempted to convince Melania Trump that Donald was not, in fact, a victim of widespread election fraud. However, numerous former Trump aides are now claiming to have “receipts” to prove that she was in on White House efforts to overturn the 2020 results.
“The following week, on Nov. 12, Grisham texted the same aide with a WaPo report about Brnovich telling Fox News there was ‘no evidence; of fraud that would change the results in Arizona,” POLITICO reports. “‘Such an ass,’ she wrote.”
Playbook goes on to add, “A month later, on Dec. 12, Grisham received a text from a lobbyist in Arizona, Gretchen Jacobs. Jacobs wrote that she had spoken with Karen Fann, a top Republican in the state Senate, and ‘asked her what would cause her to withhold the electors’ needed to certify the results. According to the text, Fann told Jacobs ‘if we could prove fraud — that would be a game-changer.'”
Allegedly, Jacobs asked Grisham to scrape up the $104,000 that would be required to hire a political consultant to find the evidence of fraud in the election — something Jacobs allegedly guaranteed they would find. Apparently, Grisham forwarded this message to the Trump campaign aide, asking, “Any ideas?”
Thus far, Grisham has declined any requests for comment on these leaked “receipts” and instead has directed reporters to Jacobs and her friend and political operative Brett Mecum, both of whom have privately claimed that Grisham did not believe the conspiracies.
Now, whether or not Grisham is lying here — only God himself truly knows. But at the end of the day, the reaction from former Trump officials is certainly telling in and of itself.
