Judge says Trump campaign screwed up on wording of confidentiality agreements

The story:
- A woman works on the Trump campaign
- Woman signs non-disclosure agreement
- Woman becomes victim of theft, sexual harassment and slander from coworkers on the campaign
- Woman launches lawsuit
- Trump legal team goes to court to try to force things to be resolved through arbitration (which can be done quietly, behind closed doors).
- Judge looks at non-disclosure agreement, finds it badly written, and decides that arbitration is not required and the case can be decided on in open court

Why its relevant:

- Anything that harms Trump (including a potentially messy legal case that he was only tangentaly involved in) is a good thing, and the possibility that his campaign will have to fork out millions makes me smile
- If the team used the same template for all their non-disclosure agreements, it would open up the possibility for other people to talk freely (including Omarosa)

Although one thing does bother me... just how much sympathy should we have for this woman? I am not condoning sexual harassment or slander, but she was working on the Trump campaign. She was trying to get Trump elected, the man who liked to 'grab em by the pussy', slandered people regularly, openly called for laws to be broken, and encouraged violence. Shouldn't she have expected that type of treatment?
Depends, was she white and hot or a housekeeper?

If reporting is too time consuming, expensive, or restrictive, then you're reporting the wrong things, or in the wrong way, or to the wrong people. Or all three.

In the same way that Trump supporters living in coal country suffering from Black Lung disease didn't sign up to have their health care taken away. But that was the end result of voting republican.

In the same way that Trump supporters living near the Mexican border didn't sign up to have their land taken away to build the wall. But that's what's happening.

And I am sure we will see from interesting tweets when:
A. Bob Woodward's book on the Trump administration "Fear" comes out

I also understand that Michael Moore has a movie called "Fahrenent 11/9" on Donald Trump. I don't have a high opinion of Moore, and think the title is just a bit too cute (Trump was elected on Nov 8) but no doubt it will get a reaction from Donnie.

Yes I am sure there are downsides to quarterly reporting or reporting period. The requirement for them has nothing to do with cost or efficiency , but to protect the public. My ears perk up when it is suggested that we trade away transparency.

Whatchu talkin' about?
All his tweets are screaming "red wave, red wave, red wave" and I know he's not talking about the USSR Russia.

Though the poll was in no way scientific, an informal survey conducted by the Military Times showed overwhelming opposition to a parade in Washington, D.C.

Why is Trump making it a point of saying he'll spend Veterans/Armistice Day in France? That strikes such a strange note. I wonder if he'll get any pushback on that. He'll be tweeting about brave American men and women ... from Paris?

Damn, looks like Omarosa went into the White House still thinking like an evil backstabbing calculating contestant on Survivor or The Apprentice. It's now being reported that she has more than 200 recordings. Seems like she went into the job with intention to document as much dirt as she could.

I have always despised this woman and I am still betting that while she might embarrass people in the White House it seems highly unlikely that there will be anything actually incriminating. But I happen to like that she is making them nervous.

I wouldn't bet that she doesn't have anything actually incriminating. The WH bunch is a Ship of Fools.
Between the Mueller investigation and Omarosa, I think they're more than nervous. I think they're going through underwear at a rate never seen before.

Normally, I would not trust Omorosa one single inch, but if she can back up what she says with tapes..........that's a different story.

Looks as if it is yet another case of "Hell Hath No Fury LIke A Woman Scorned".

Nope. I’m pretty sure it was the ‘Muricans that beat the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain. The Brits made tea and cheered the yanks on.

Is it? So far I've heard 4 recordings and only one with Trump and that was on the phone. It seems as if they want the WH to be totally secure they would have to prohibit cell phones in the White House.

They hired Omarosa, first mistake, they trusted her, second mistake. But in a White House where the President treats trust as a one way street, it seems highly unreasonable to think anyone is trustworthy. I mean, if I think you are going to throw me under the bus at some point I'm going to prepare counter measures.

I wonder what cell phone she uses, because that audio is very clear. Unless she was literally holding it out while recording people, I suspect she had more equipment than that.

Between the Mueller investigation and Omarosa, I think they're more than nervous. I think they're going through underwear at a rate never seen before.
Hell, I stopped betting on this horror show a long time ago.
