Trump’s White House Is Gagging Interns And Threatening Them With Financial Ruin
President Donald Trump is forcing White House interns to sign non-disclosure agreements, which threaten them with financial ruin for leaking, notes the Daily Beast.
Sources told the news site that a representative from the White House counsel’s office demanded the youngsters sign the non-disclosure agreements during the orientation meeting, which was ironically called “ethics training.” The interns reportedly did not get copies of thenon-disclosure agreements.
The White House denied in 2018 that it was requiring people to sign non-disclosure agreements, tweeted CNN’s Jake Tapper.
Government workers have different standards and rules than private employees, legal scholars told the Washington Post.
