Attorneys for Donald Trump sent former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon a cease and desist letter following a series of shocking revelations published Wednesday, ABC News reports.


In the letter, attorney Charles Harder, accused Bannon of breaking his nondisclosure agreement, "by, among other things, communicating with author Michael Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company [the 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.”

The attorney's letter follows a series of a reports in Wolff's forthcoming book Fire and Fury, which includes quotes from Bannon that allegedly disparage Trump and members of his family. The letter warns the president may seek “remedies for your breach of the agreement include but are not limited to monetary damages”

Trump on Wednesday fired back at Bannon after reports started to circulate, insisting when his former top aide lost his job at the White House, he also “lost his mind.”

In a statement, Harder's law firm said "legal action is imminent."
