We will be seeking to depose #PresidentTrump in both the federal lawsuit and arbitration. He has made himself part of these legal disputes. It is unavoidable for him.
We have filed federal lawsuit today against #PresidentTrump for #CliffSims to defend his #1stAmendmentrights.

@MarkSZaidEsq and I promised we would challenge any effort by @realDonaldTrump to impose his campaign NDA against former WH staffers for information from their USG service. Promise fulfilled.
