Former White House aide who wrote exposé sues Trump

Cliff Sims, a former communications aide in President Donald Trump's White House and the author of the recently released tell-all book "Team of Vipers", is now suing his former boss for allegedly trying to punish him for publishing his story.

The suit argues that, "it is really the intense powers of the Presidency coming down" to silence Sims and wants a court injunction to block any nondisclosure agreements "that seek to unconstitutionally infringe upon (Sims') First Amendment rights". Moss noted that while Sims signed an NDA during the campaign, the additional one he signed in the White House is "unprecedented" for an administration.

But Zaid, citing "sources", charged the arbitration was filed on Trump's orders, thereby violating Sims' First Amendment protections, since the US government - in this case, the president - is prohibited by the Constitution from silencing federal employees once they leave office, unless it pertains to classified information.

Airbus says A380 superjumbo production will end
The French aircraft company will stop delivering the double-deck, four-engine plane in 2021, it said in a statement Thursday . Passengers have often raved about the A380 flying experience as it offers more legroom, space and upgrade options.

Sims' lawsuit, however, claims Trump's campaign is trying to silence Sims by trying to apply an NDA to "information Mr. Sims learned exclusively during his federal service", according to The New York Times.

Sims accuses Trump of selectively enforcing the nondisclosure agreements, highlighting that he did not target other former campaign and administration staffers who wrote books about their time in Trump's orbit - including former press secretary Sean Spicer and former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

In that sense, Zaid said, Trump is using his campaign as a "cutout" for revenge. A Trump campaign spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment. In the following days, the Trump campaign announced that it had begun arbitration proceedings against Sims.

The decision was taken to suspend racing after three cases of horse flu were confirmed at a stable in Cheshire last Wednesday. There are 121 entries for Fontwell's six races ahead of Wednesday's final declarations.

When Sims' book dropped last month, Trump attempted to discredit it by claiming that he "hardly knew" the former White House aide.

The lawsuit seeks a declaration that Sims has a right to disclose non-classified information from his stint on Trump's White House team. Most legal experts say such agreements are not enforceable for public employees; nonetheless, dozens of White House aides have signed NDAs in exchange for working with Trump.
