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.”

Republicans are terrified of having to think for themselves once Trump is gone: S.E. Cupp
On CNN Monday, conservative commentator S.E. Cupp argued that GOP lawmakers are not just scared of retribution for not standing with outgoing President Donald Trump; they are also scared of having to define what they stand for as a party without him telling them what to believe.
"For the past four years, we, especially in the media, have heard Republicans in private are XYZ — disgusted, disturbed, troubled — but publicly, very silent, except in these moments where it really doesn't count, where everyone is doing it," said Cupp. "I think, in fact, if I write another book, I will call it 'In private: the great cowardice of Trump's GOP.'"
‘No hands to play’: Harvard Law professor says even competent lawyers wouldn’t have saved Trump’s case
On Monday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe argued that President Donald Trump's legal case to overturn the presidential election results was doomed to fail — even if he had had more knowledgeable and skilled legal counsel.
"Let me ask you about the breaking news from the GSA," said anchor Erin Burnett. "Emily Murphy, Trump appointee, said she was not pressured to do anything. Trump obviously seems to be clearly taking credit, I recommended she do this, I am the one calling the shots. You have been very clear that this withholding of a transition from the GSA and Emily Murphy, as the chief, could have been in violation of federal law. Do you believe any laws were broken in this delay?"
Trump becomes ‘hermit-in-chief’ as he hides from reporters amid election court losses: CNN’s Acosta
On CNN Monday, chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta broke down how President Donald Trump's loss is starting to sink in for the president, his advisers, and his party.
"Becoming something of a hermit-in-chief, President Trump steered clear of the cameras yet again and was even unusually silent on social media much of the day, as more top Republicans slam President Trump's legal team for serving up nothingburgers in his quest to upend the 2020 election," said Acosta. "Even though some of the president's advisers urged him to dump attorney Sidney Powell from his legal team, it's unclear whether that will satisfy close allies like former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who are losing patience with Mr. Trump's efforts to cling to power."
