White House Staffers Reportedly Signed Nondisclosure Agreements
The Washington Post reports senior staffers ultimately signed the confidentiality agreements after deciding they likely weren't enforceable.
In an effort to stop the spread of leaks coming out of the White House, President Donald Trump reportedly asked his senior staff to sign nondisclosure agreements.
That's according to a columnist from The Washington Post, who claims to have seen a draft of the agreement, but not a final copy.
Language in the draft copy reportedly ordered staffers to pay $10 million to the federal government for each piece of confidential information they shared.
The Post noted that penalty was most likely smaller in the final agreements, since sources the writer talked to did not remember that number.
Members of Trump's campaign and transition team reportedly signed NDAs. But the agreement White House staffers signed reportedly extends beyond Trump's time in the Oval Office.
Staffers ultimately signed the agreements because they reportedly concluded they're likely not enforceable. The White House has yet to comment on the report.
