Jessica Denson, a former Trump campaign official who is suing to have the nondisclosure agreement she signed voided so she can talk publicly about abuse she received, on Friday delivered a blistering denunciation of the man she once believed should be the leader of the free world.
When asked by CNN’s Alisyn Camerota what she was hoping to accomplish with her lawsuit to overturn her NDA, Denson did not hold back on slamming the culture of corruption that surrounds President Donald Trump.
“These NDAs are extremely dangerous,” she said. “I think that we are in a very dangerous time in our country and I think we need all hands on deck to confront the oppression and the lies that are coming out of [the man] who is supposed to be the leader of the free world.”
She then said that Trump supporters should be the angriest people at all of the promises the president has broken to bring ethics back to Washington, D.C.
“I think the supporters of this campaign should be among the most outraged, that they have been taken for fools and used,” she said. “These NDAs say that someone who signed them will have a lifetime of allegiance to everything related to Trump. That if they dare to do anything but praise and be a sycophant for this president, that their very livelihood will be threatened. This is un-American, this is unconstitutional.”

’Let ‘em go’: Ex-police commissioner lays into Buffalo cops who quit Emergency Response Team
On CNN Friday, former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey slammed the 57 Buffalo police officers who resigned from the city's Emergency Response Team in solidarity with a pair of officers investigated for shoving an elderly man to the ground and then lying about it.
"If they want to resign, they should resign from the department," said Ramsey. "They don't have a vote in what unit they're in or the running of that department. They would not be allowed to step down from those positions. If they want to resign from the police department, let 'em go, and I would not bring them back, it just means you have some slots you have to fill. That kind of stuff is ridiculous and can't be tolerated."
Trump accused by ex-Defense Secretary of putting US on ‘the trail toward a dictatorship’
During an appearance on CNN on Friday morning, former Defense Secretary William Cohen - who also served in the U.S. Senate as a Republican -- denounced Donald Trump in no uncertain terms, saying his use of military personnel against anti-police brutality protesters is a sign he has set the country on the path to a dictatorship.
To emphasize his point, he later called Trump the "dictator-in-chief."
Speaking with host Jim Sciutto, Cohen didn't mince words after the CNN host noted that the president and his former attorney called the protesters "terrorists."
"What does it mean for you to hear a sitting president dismissing a whole range of protesters, who in fact were largely peaceful around the White House, dismissing a whole range of them as terrorists? What does that mean to you?" the CNN host asked.
Richmond mayor schools white lawmaker complaining removal of Confederate statue strips her of her history
Appearing on CNN's "New Day" on Friday morning, the mayor of Richmond, Virginia set a white state lawmaker straight over her comments that the imminent removal of a statue commemorating Confederate General Robert E. Lee was erasing her history.
Speaking with host John Berman, Mayor Levar Stoney expressed pleasure at the upcoming removal of the massive statue, saying it was a long overdue -- before the interview turned to comments made by State Senator Amanda Chase (R) made in a Facebook post.
Noting that the white lawmaker complained, "Let's be honest here, there is an overt effort here to erase all-white history," Stoney had a few words for the lawmaker.
