Trump In A World Of Legal Trouble After Attempting To Shut Former Aide From Exposing Him
Former White House communication aide Cliff Sims, who is the author of the tell-it-all book “Team of Vipers,” is now suing Donald Trump for attempting to take away his First Amendment rights.
According to The New York Times, “Mr. Sims was a White House aide from the beginning of the administration. But it was the campaign organization that filed an arbitration claim against him last week, accusing him of violating the nondisclosure agreement he signed with it during the 2016 presidential race with the publication of his book, ‘Team of Vipers’, last month.”
The Times also reported that the lawsuit claims that Trump is “seeking to impose civil liability against Mr. Sims through the application of NDAs that apply to information Mr. Sims learned solely during his federal service.”
