Trump Orders "Media Blackout" At EPA

Trump has ordered a freeze on spending at the Environmental Protection Agency, and has ordered a "media blackout" at the agency: EPA employees, Trump says, are not allowed to say anything to the media or on social media about what he's doing at their agency.

I have a few questions:

1) Is Trump actually authorized to order either the spending freeze or the gag order?

2) Are any EPA employees disobeying the "media blackout"?

2a) If so, what is happening to them because of it? Are they being suspended? fired? arrested?

3) Are this spending freeze and "media blackout" things which can be added to the list of reasons to impeach Trump? Isn't he overstepping his authority, or at the very least using it in a way which can and should be sharply questioned?

Who's going to be told next to shut up -- you? Me?

Speak up, people! While you still can!
