Posted on 02/11/2019 4:33:25 PM PST by detective
Cliff Sims, the former White House communications aide who wrote an insider account of life working for President Trump, is suing the president in his official capacity, alleging that he used his campaign organization as a cutout to improperly seek retribution against former employees and keep them from invoking their First Amendment rights.
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 White House had dozens of people sign such agreements at the beginning of the presidents term. But those agreements are widely seen as likely unenforceable. In the suit, Mr. Sims says he does not recall whether he signed one when he came to the White House.

Government says he violated the NDA he signed as a condition of employment.
So he is suing Trump.
may as well be a DNC press release
In the suit, Mr. Sims says he does not recall whether he signed one when he came to the White House.
WHAT is Cliff Sims BACKGROUND?? Democrat MOLE most likely!
He looks like a ‘rat
I hope he loses, and ends up paying all of President Trumps legal costs, just like Stormy Daniels.
He should talk to Stormy, and see how well that worked out for her.
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... Sims says he does not recall whether he signed one when he came to the White House.
Someone with those kinds of memory problems can't write reliable memoirs. If it had been Clinton or Obama, Sims wouldn't be alive to bitch about it..
Is evil DNC Creature Maggie finished smearing minor Catholic white boys.
I hope this monster gets rolled in KY court for attacking innocent minors .
He signed an NDA. He’s stupid
“he does not recall whether he signed one”
then how can we believe he can recall anything else?
This guy has to be pretty thick in the head - has he not noticed what happens when someone takes on this president? Good grief.
As though this little snot-nosed twit can succeed in court against a public person such as the president.
Book must’ve done lousy sales.
Sue Trump sounds like something one does to draw attention to themselves as I see it.
What a waste of time for this person because the suit shouldn’t hold any water.
NDAs are used all the time in business. The court will have to uphold them so as not to inject chaos into the business, etc. community.
I have some vindshield vipers if that would help.
In today’s age, everything gets put onto paper or in some other legal form.
I cannot in the least imagine Trump NOT having such a NDA document signed by everyone-—even the guy who cleans the carpets or the blinds.
He can’t recall whether he signed an NDA? I guess his memory will be refreshed when it is submitted into evidence.
He is claiming that the campaign is the same as the person of the president? Yeah, that’ll fly.
He is claiming that the plaintiff asserting a violation of the NDA he signed (and let’s be fairly clear, if there wasn’t an NDA he signed, then the plaintiff in this case loses the instant they step into court or arbitration) is a violation of his free speech?
This cases loses badly, quickly.
