Former President Donald Trump on Monday announced a lawsuit against journalist Bob Woodward, claiming that he and his publisher released the recordings of his interviews without his consent.

Trump is seeking $49 million from Woodward and publisher Simon & Schuster Inc., in connection with the release of recordings to 2019 and 2020 interviews, according to the Washington Examiner.

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

Woodward, a longtime editor and reporter for the Washington Post, has published several books on the Trump White House, including “Rage” and “Peril.”

In January of this year, he released recordings of his 20 interviews with the 45th president.
