President Trump’s lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter to former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon Wednesday ordering him to refrain from making “disparaging statement” about Trump and his family, according to a new report.
ABC News reports the letter, from Trump attorney Charles Harder, accuses Bannon of breaching a non-disclosure agreement signed as part of working on Trump’s campaign.
“You have breached the Agreement by, among other things, communicating with author Michael Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company [the Trump campaign], disclosing Confidential Information to Mr. Wolff, and making disparaging statements and in some cases outright defamatory statements to Mr. Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members,” Harder wrote, according to ABC News.
The letter to Bannon also states that “remedies for your breach of the agreement include but are not limited to monetary damages.”
