Former and current Trump campaign and White House aides signed nondisclosure agreements, which do not allow them to say anything negative about President Donald Trump, the Trump family and Trump companies, even if those statements are true(video below).
Former Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson admitted to CNN on Aug. 14 that she signed a nondisclosure agreement, and then said that she would tell the truth, which she is not allowed to do, per the nondisclosure agreement.
Current Trump spokesperson Marc Lotter told MSNBC on Aug.14 that he signed a Trump nondisclosure agreement, but was stumped when host Katy Thur asked him the obvious:
Even if you wouldn’t work for them any longer — say something happened while you were there that horrified you or appalled you or you felt was illegal — you can’t talk about it. So again, why should we trust anything you say, when you are legally bound to say good things about the person you’re coming on to talk about?
The Washington Post reports on how the Trump nondisclosure agreements are written to conceal the truth:
Under one agreement from the 2016 campaign, signers promised not to “demean or disparage publicly” Trump, his company or any member of his family — and also not to assist any other politician exploring a federal or state office.
An agreement circulated in the White House last year barred signers from sharing any information they had learned in the building, according to several aides who signed the document.
