A lawyer for President Donald Trump is threatening legal action against former White House strategist Steve Bannon over what he calls "disparaging statements and in some cases outright defamatory statements" in a new book.
Trump lawyer Charles Harder has sent a letter to Bannon, saying the former Trump aide violated confidentiality agreements by speaking with reporter Michael Wolff for a book. The letter demands Bannon "cease and desist" any further disclosure of confidential information.
In the book, Bannon is quoted as describing a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr, Trump campaign aides and a Russian lawyer as "treasonous."
Bannon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
