Donald Trump's re-election campaign organization said Monday that it is preparing to sue Cliff Sims, a former White House official whose tell-all book a West Wing aide says left the president swinging pendulum-like between feeling outraged and injured.
'The Trump campaign is preparing to file suit against Cliff Sims for violating our NDA,' campaign Chief Operating Officer Michael Glassner said Tuesday in a tweet, hours after the book 'Team of Vipers' went on sale.
The campaign required most enployees to sign non-disclosure agreements, but legal analysts disagree about whether they are enforceable. Campaign officials predicted a lawsuit following the August 2018 release of Omarosa Manigault-Newman's explosive White House memoir, but none materialized.
The president couldn't sit still on Tuesday as Sims took a TV victory lap, writing on Twitter that he was 'nothing more than a gofer' and protesting that he, like Manigault-Newman, had signed an NDA.
