Conservative law professor unloads on White House counsel Don McGahn for drafting Trump’s NDAs

Published

on

Adam White, a conservative professor at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School and a research fellow at the right-wing Hoover Institute, found himself utterly appalled by new revelations that President Donald Trump has been trying to use nondisclosure agreements to silence former staffers who have since left his administration.

Trump on Monday tweeted out that estranged former ally Omarosa Manigault-Newman had already signed an NDA that he claimed should have guaranteed her silence after being fired from the White House last year.

In response to this, New York Times reporter Julie Davis noted on Twitter that she had reported earlier this year that White House counsel Don McGahn had written up the NDAs under pressure from Trump — despite the fact that he knew that they would not be enforceable in a court of law.

Responding to Davis’ tweet, White said he was in shock that McGahn would stoop to writing up agreements aimed at intimidating and silencing government employees from speaking publicly.

“That’s astonishing,” White wrote. “It’s no answer to say, ‘he knew they were unenforceable.’ The White House Counsel shouldn’t in the business of writing unenforceable contracts for political reasons. Tell your client ‘no.'”

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
