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.'”

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

on

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
