In a chilling move, lawyers for President Donald Trump sent a stop and terminate minute to former White House arch strategist Steve Bannon following the announcement of his comments in publisher Michael Wolff’s arriving book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
ABC News reported on the letter, along with a matter from Trump’s attorneys. It reads in part:
“This law organisation represents President Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. On interest of the clients, authorised notice was expelled currently to Stephen K. Bannon, that his actions of communicating with author Michael Wolff per an arriving book give arise to countless authorised claims including insult by defame and slander, and crack of his created confidentiality and non-disparagement agreement with the clients. Legal movement is imminent.”1
The minute to Bannon accuses him of breaching a nondisclosure agreement Trump forced staffers to sign. The shred of the minute reads:
“You [Bannon] have breached the Agreement by, among other things, communicating with author Michael Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company, disclosing Confidential Information to Mr. Wolff, and making adverse statements and in some cases undisguised insulting statements to Mr. Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company, meaningful that they would be enclosed in Mr. Wolff’s book and broadside surrounding the selling and sale of his book.”
This comes after Trump expelled a extraordinary matter disapproval Bannon on Wednesday, observant he “lost his mind” after being fired and was obliged for the Republicans’ detriment of an Alabama Senate seat.
