I’m no expert either, but I do know that most confidentiality in federal government is handled by statute (making NDAs unnecessary for classified info and state secrets, etc.) and any personal NDAs would have to go through OPM, and I can’t imagine OPM would permit it since it silences a public employee’s right to free speech. And a personal NDA in a government capacity undermines public transparency. OPM wouldn’t countenance such a thing unless there was clear authorization to do it, and I don’t think there is.
Trump might be able to change that via executive order, no idea - but what does that tell you about an administration that has to lock its employees up with silence?
Yeah I don’t feel that strongly but who knows. That said I’m going to be pissed if you lose and actually stop posting because we only have a handful of people who post in this forum and since Raj got banned Zepp is the only one left worth not having
Sarah Sanders suggested ‘Slovenly Steve,’ but Trump demurred because 1) he thought it sounded too “edumacated”; 2) he was unsure if he could spell it consistently; and 3) he didn’t know what slovenly meant.
I am too, they usually come with an agenda. This one aligns fairly well with the person who ghost wrote Trump’s best-seller so it seems very plausible to me. Especially if he has recordings for the quotes being used.
