U.S. House panel requests White House provide nondisclosure agreements

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Reform on Tuesday reissued a request made last year for copies of the nondisclosure agreements signed by White House staffers under President Donald Trump.

In a letter to acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, Democratic Representative Elijah Cummings said he wanted to review the agreements to determine whether they include legally required language about protections for whistleblowers who cooperate with Congress.

“Gag orders without this required language could chill employees from reporting violations of law, waste, fraud, and abuse,” Cummings wrote.

Cummings, along with Representative Jerrold Nadler, who now chairs the Judiciary Committee, asked the White House for copies of the nondisclosure agreements in March 2018 but their request was ignored.
