Former White House Aide Cliff Sims Is Suing Trump for First Amendment Violations

 
 
 
Former White House communication aide and author of “Team of Vipers” Cliff Sims is suing President Donald Trump.

Sims claims that Trump is attempting to take away his 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 New York Times reported.

According to The Times, 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.”
