President Donald Trump’s re-election advertising and marketing campaign paid $Ninety three,000 to a law agency earlier this year to fight lend a hand in opposition to Michael Wolff’s hotly debated White Condominium recount-all guide, “Fire and Fury.”
Harder was as soon as hired to send cease-and-desist letters in early January to Bannon as properly as to the guide’s publisher, Henry Holt and Co., appropriate because the guide began to invent headlines sooner than its Jan. 5 e-newsletter.
In the letter to Bannon, Harder claimed the ragged Trump consultant broke the nondisclosure settlement he signed when he left the White Condominium. Harder also demanded Bannon set aside all communications he ever had with Wolff.
Factual days sooner than the guide’s e-newsletter, Harder’s agency known as on Henry Holt and Co. to quit e-newsletter and assert a “stout and total retraction and apology” to Trump. Instead, the firm published the guide about a days earlier than the first and vital planned e-newsletter date.
In step with Wolff, Bannon old the word “treasonous” to picture a gathering the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., had with a Kremlin-backed lawyer at Trump Tower in 2016. Bannon also in my procedure insulted the president’s son-in-law and senior aide, Jared Kushner, the guide says.
A spokesman for the Trump advertising and marketing campaign didn’t return requests for comment in regards to the funds to Harder. Harder didn’t return repeated emails for comment. Bannon and Henry Holt and Co. also didn’t return requests for comment.
