President Donald Trump has threatened to go to the courts to block the publication of a new book about his White House, but any potential litigation may already be doomed.

Lawyer Charles Harder of Harder Mirell & Abrams sent a “cease and desist” letter to author Michael Wolff and his publisher, Henry Holt Co., Thursday, according to media reports. The letter demanded that the company refrain from publishing Wolff’s book, “Fire and Fury,” or face legal action. The publisher said it pushed the release date from Tuesday, Jan. 9, to Friday due to the book’s demand.
