According to congressional sources who spoke to Politico, congressional Republican staffers secretly helped the Trump Regime draft their disastrous Muslim ban and, most preposterously, they reportedly signed non-disclosure agreements with the transition team that prohibited them from talking to their bosses about it.
The work of the committee aides began during the transition period after the election and before Donald Trump was sworn in. The staffers signed nondisclosure agreements, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Trump's transition operation forced its staff to sign these agreements, but it would be unusual to extend that requirement to congressional employees.
I may be a legal layman, but I know enough to know there's no way this is legal. A non-disclosure agreement between congressional staffers and the executive branch would be tossed out even if you handed it to the most conservative federal judge in the country.
Politico describes these staffers as the "most experienced staffers when it comes to immigration policy" which certainly doesn't bode well for congressional Republicans given the calamity we witnessed over the weekend. Their supposedly best staffers wrote an executive order that prohibited permanent, legal residents from entering the country; people who've lived and worked here for many years. Their order has been deemed unconstitutional by every federal judge who's seen it so far.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan refused to answer questions about this report this morning.
