Mark Meadows Sued by Book Publisher for Alleged Breach of Contract Over Testimony

Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is facing a lawsuit from his book publisher, All Seasons Press, for allegedly contradicting the claims made in his book about the 2020 election. All Seasons Press claims that Meadows’ sworn testimony undermined the book’s assertion that the election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.

The lawsuit, filed in Florida, cites media reports from last month that allege Meadows knew Trump had lost to Democrat Joe Biden. The court papers state that Meadows’ reported statements to the Special Prosecutor and/or his staff and his reported grand jury testimony contradict the statements made in “The Chief’s Chief,” which claims that Trump was the true winner of the 2020 Presidential Election and that it was rigged with the help of allies in the liberal media.

Meadows’ attorney has not yet responded to the lawsuit. All Seasons Press is seeking the return of Meadows’ $350,000 advance and damages of over $1 million, alleging that Meadows’ actions have damaged sales and the publisher’s reputation.

“The Chief’s Chief” has sold approximately 23,000 copies, and All Seasons Press says it sold around 60,000 copies out of a printing of 200,000. Special counsel Jack Smith, who is investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, had reportedly granted Meadows immunity and testified that voter fraud allegations were baseless and that he knew Trump hadn’t won. All Seasons alleges that if media reports are accurate, Meadows testified under oath that his book contains known falsehoods.

The lawsuit is unusual because it is based on media reports rather than direct knowledge of Meadows’ testimony, and it is based on alleged factual errors. Publishers typically rely on authors to verify the accuracy of their manuscripts and are more likely to object to a book due to plagiarism or the author’s personal conduct.

Meadows, who has pleaded not guilty to charges in Georgia for attempting to overturn the state’s election results in 2020, had his request to have the case moved to federal court denied by a judge in September.
