Ex-White House aide Cliff Sims sues Trump over nondisclosure agreements

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: CNN

Mark Zaid, Sims' attorney, argues in the lawsuit, "The U.S. Government is intentionally and unconstitutionally engaging in a subterfuge effort to use a private entity, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., to do its bidding to silence Mr. Sims when it is really the intense powers of the Presidency coming down upon a sole individual."

The lawsuit requests a court ruling that Trump "may not enforce, whether directly or through non-U.S. Government cutouts, any nondisclosure agreements that seek to unconstitutionally infringe upon his First Amendment rights."

The argument has a lot of merit.

1. He can't silence federal workers regarding what's learned in a federal job.

This will be an easy win.

Edited to add: Of course I am not referring to classified information, the restrictions of which would have nothing to do with the non-disclosure agreement.

4. Interesting. I wonder if those NDAs are constitutional. Others have written books, like Omarosa.

Is Trump suing all those who have written books?

6. Locking...

The consensus of Forum Hosts agrees, an ex-staffer suing the President over enforcement of an NDA that staffer willingly signed, is not important news of national interest
