Who mentioned Clinton?
NDA's are very common in almost any time of professional work done now a days. Even video game beta tests make you electronically sign them.
I'm not worried about a radical Trump presidency. Just keeping a sane, fair, SCOTUS.
Sorry but this is someone running for public office, not a job in a private buisness.
Unless it relates to national security, everything should be open to transparency, at least after the campaign.
This is why politicians get away with lying, corruption and even treason and murder, because people close to them are unable or unwilling to call out there BS.

In fact I'd be surprised if Hillary and all candidates for high office don't have their people sign something very similar.
The folks from Cincinatti.Com asked around and found that making volunteers sign NDA’s is not normal for political campaigns. Hillary Clinton doesn’t require it. Neither did Bernie Sanders. South Carolina’s GOP Chair Matt Moore also declared, “it’s not a typical procedure.”
To sign up on Trump’s website, potential volunteers must agree to a 2,271-word non-disclosure agreement in which they also promise they won’t compete against or say anything bad about Trump, his company, his family members or products – now and forever.
That’s right. If you want to work for Donald Trump’s campaign, you have to promise to never work on a rival’s campaign or say anything bad about “Trump, his company, his family members or products – now and forever” just for the privilege of phone banking for him.
Freedom of the press is not freedom to slander. The purpose of the press is to report news, not spin articles.
I thought that was obvious. It's common wherever the business has proprietary or sensitive information and needs to protect it. Apparently, Trump feels his campaign strategies need protection. I don't blame him.
When did a campaign become a business?
I don't think it is anyone's business what anyone else does privately
So, let me get this straight... you WANT the gory details of Hillary and Bill's sex life? Or Donald and Melania's?
By Associated Press Jul 12, 2016
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is seeking $10 million in damages from a former senior campaign consultant, Sam Nunberg, alleging that Nunberg leaked confidential information to reporters in violation of a nondisclosure agreement.
In a court filing obtained by the Associated Press, Nunberg accused Trump of trying to silence him "in a misguided attempt to cover up media coverage of an apparent affair" between two senior campaign staffers.
The highly unusual legal dispute reflects Trump's efforts to aggressively protect the secrecy of his campaign's inner workings.
