Trump Derangement Syndrome runs so strong in the national media that rehashing old news is fair game to disparage President Donald Trump.

President TrumpDonald John TrumpAccuser says Trump should be afraid of the truth Woman behind pro-Trump Facebook page denies being influenced by Russians Shulkin says he has White House approval to root out "subversion" at VA MORE required senior White House staffers to sign nondisclosure agreements that extend past his presidency, according to a reported column in The Washington Post.

Marcus said the White House never responded to multiple requests for comment. Some balked at first but, pressed by then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and the White House Counsel's Office, ultimately complied, concluding that the agreements would likely not be enforceable in any event.

Marcus writes that she's seen a draft of the agreement that would "expose violators to penalties of $10 million", though apparently the final amount in the NDAs was not quite so large.

And that's just it, it's not exactly breaking news that Trump "requires" employees to sign such agreements.

Language in the draft copy reportedly ordered staffers to pay $10 million to the federal government for each piece of confidential information they shared.

And they meant "nearly everyone", noting that even a maker of his "Make America Great Again" hats was subject to a confidentiality agreement.

The NDAs also applied to "all times" after President Donald Trump's term in office.

Top officials in the Trump campaign signed similar agreements, but legal experts questioned whether such an agreement would be legal for a high-ranking government employee, given constitutional free-speech protections. If the newspaper believes "democracy dies in darkness", as its motto suggests, perhaps they should turn the lights on to their own anti-Trump bias.
