Donald Trump simply employed one of many nation’s prime trial attorneys, Joe Tacopina, to go after a former Manhattan prosecutor for allegedly defaming him, TMZ has discovered.
In his first order of biz as 45’s new authorized eagle, Tacopina fired off a letter Monday to lawyer Mark Pomerantz, claiming Pomerantz falsely acknowledged Trump was “guilty of numerous felony violations” and that it was a “grave failure of justice not to hold [Trump] accountable by way of criminal prosecution.”
Pomerantz’s statements appeared in his 2022 resignation letter to Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg, which Tacopina says was later leaked to the New York Times.
In his letter, Tacopina’s notably incensed Pomerantz is about to publish a ebook, “The People vs. Donald Trump,” which, Joe believes, will include much more libelous remarks about DT.
That’s why Tacopina’s issuing a authorized menace to Pomerantz, writing … “I strongly admonish you to take these next words seriously: If you publish such a book and continue making defamatory statements against my client, my office will aggressively pursue all legal remedies against you and your book publisher, Simon & Schuster.”
Tacopina added, “Trust me, I will zealously use every possible legal resource to punish you and your publisher for the incredible financial harm that you have caused my clients to suffer.”
As we reported, the Manhattan D.A. has performed anongoing 2-year probe into the Trump Organization’s enterprise practices.
Pomerantz was one of many senior prosecutors on the case earlier than he resigned, allegedly after Bragg would not let him pursue a felony indictment in opposition to Trump.
So far, Bragg’s investigation has led to the latest conviction of Allen Weisselberg, former CFO of the Trump Organization who pled responsible and was sentenced to five months behind bars for varied monetary crimes.
Bragg has expressed concern Pomerantz’s upcoming ebook may derail his investigation into the forty fifth president, who introduced his 2024 run for the White House in November. Tacopina says within the letter Trump is main all potential candidates in the latest polls.
We’ve reached out to Pomerantz for remark … up to now no phrase again.
