Yeah...
Too bad they're Democrats.

The midterms can't come soon enough...

And why won't the republican dissenters step the f*ck up and throw down? Are they waiting till they get theirs? Are they blow hards?

No.
They're still party line sycophants. Playing defense for the party....

Yeah, that'll happen right after the tax returns are released

The NDAs were a really great idea until Trump put himself in a position to be subpoenaed.

pretty sure people being payed with tax payer money cant be asked to sign NDA's unless its authorized by the government itself. AKA security clearance. Otherwise all info should be legal to disclose under foip. Otherwise blanket NDAs would be the norm regardless of president...

NDAs with the government are sop i know. But those are with the government. not with any private individual and the terms of breaking them are pretty weak wristed... its basically a dont talk about shiat while you work here or you will be fired document.... And even then its pretty weakly written. ive signed a few. Public employees cant be held to private contracts for their work for public money. But whatever. fark pornstars grab pussy and never ever ever even acknowledge accounts payable.

I know the White House doesn't give a shiat, but could having this, plus the letter from January, on file with no response help the case Mueller is building?

There are no Republican dissenters. Some of them play at it for laughs or a few votes, but Republicans in general are extremely authoritarian. Dissent is the ultimate sin.

He really is an idiot.

You are in public office that is run by public servants.  While you might be able to force a contractor to sign an NDA, a public servant's NDA might as well be written on toilet paper.  If they are asked by any governing body to disclose information they are required by law to disclose it.  That would supersede the NDA.

Between his loyalty pledges and cheap intimidation tactics, I can't fathom how people with more than two brain cells stay loyal to this moron.

The answer you seek is contained in your question, grasshopper.

I get the feeling that Dumpy is anticipating a whole shelf of tell-all insider expose books about his White House, and he'll be damned if anybody makes a dime off his name except for him.

Could it stop someone from talking to the press absent a FOIA request?

Sure there are!
McCain pushed back against Trumps congratulatory call with Putin today.
McCain said it was dishonorable for a US president to be congratulating a dictator for winning a fixed election.

Yet McCain still supports the overall direction of American politics.

Like I said, they're running defence.
They're negging the American population...

Just to make it clear:
All the arguments I'm hearing about the validity of these NDAs deal with someone with authority requesting information - a FOIA request, a Congressional inquiry, etc.

But would they NDAs be enforceable if it's just a staffer wanting to talk on his own. Like just chatting with reporters or wanting to write a book about his experience? In cases like that would there be anything superseding the NDA? 1st Amendment maybe?

So far it sounds like it is basically an illegal contract, and is unenforceable.

I can answer this easily.  Two factors:  Hubris and gaslighting.  Hubris, in that they're supporting the man they WISH he was, or need him to be, rather than what he is.  And two, gaslighting, there's a political gaslighting campaign going on with fox news style media, where they've been, over the course of a decade plus, been made to be convinced that they are surrounded by unamerican enemies at all times, and that there is always a reason to be terrified and afraid and angry.  They were led to believe that Trump is an "outsider" and would "drain the swap" which leads us right back to point one, the hubris.

I'm waiting for the revelation that Lift-Bro was stupid enough to sign one, and that's why he's been silent all this time.  He's afraid Von Clownstick will sue him.

Nads = NDAs

I don't think it's going to take anything at all for these Loyalty Oaths to be proclaimed as worthless as used toilet paper. Little Donny must be crapping his adult diaper, I guess they can use the NDA's to wipe up all the crap. I have a feeling there are going to be some interesting books coming out in the future.
