Former White House aide who wrote expose sues Trump

Ex-Trump aide is now suing the president for abusing his office and trying to punish his speaking out report

Former White House communications aide Cliff Sims, who made headlines with his tell-all book Team of Vipers, is suing President Donald Trump, claiming the president uses his campaign organization to punish former employees for exercising free speech.

Appearing on CNN's "New Day", Sims said he was "backed into a corner" by the Trump campaign's effort to impose the NDA on those who serve in the White House.

Sims claims that Trump is attempting to take away his first amendment rights.

Trump has had members of the administration and his campaign sign non-disclosure agreements, as revealed by Omarosa Manigault-Newman, who wrote a scathing book about her time working for Trump after she was sacked. A Trump campaign spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment. The lawsuit pointed out that the president attempted to enforce a nondisclosure agreement with former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman after she released a tell-all book about her experiences while serving the Trump administration but didn't do so when former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer dropped his book.

Trump has dismissed Sims as a "low level staffer". In the following days, the Trump campaign announced that it had begun arbitration proceedings against Sims. "He pretended to be an insider when in fact he was nothing more than a gofer". "He signed a non-disclosure agreement".

Former ‘American Idol’ Contestant Antonella Barba Accused of Delivering Fentanyl
She appeared this year on comedian Jimmy Kimmel's show for a segment featuring other Idol alums titled "Where Are They Now?" The new charges could result in even more hard time, with each count carrying a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Cliff Sims filed a lawsuit Monday in federal court in Washington.

Sims's lawsuit notes it does not seek to stop those proceedings, which it states will be handled separately.

Zaid asserts in the lawsuit that the U.S. government is "seeking to impose civil liability against Mr. Sims through application of NDAs that apply to information Mr. Sims learned exclusively during his federal service".

The Trump re-election campaign filed a private arbitration suit against Sims on January 31 over his book allegedly violating a non-disclosure agreement he signed upon joining the 2016 presidential bid. Legal analysts have said NDAs like those Trump forces his aides to sign are unenforceable.
