A former prosecutor who's planning to release a book about the criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump he led for nearly a year was warned Monday to expect a lawsuit.

Former Manhattan Special Assistant District Attorney Mark Pomerantz concluded Trump's approach to business was similar to that of former mob boss John Gotti, and deserved to be indicted, according to a press release for the book, "People vs. Donald Trump: An Inside Account." It's a description that doesn't sit well with Trump attorney Joseph Tacopina.

"I strongly admonish you to take these next words seriously: If you publish such a book and continue making defamatory statements against my clients, my office will aggressively pursue all legal remedies," Tacopina wrote in a letter to Pomerantz Monday, alleging defamation.

Pomerantz defended the book in a statement to CBS News.

"If the former president should sue me, I will defend that litigation. I stand by the statements I have made previously and those contained in my forthcoming book," Pomerantz said.
