Fame junkie Omarosa breaches White House security by releasing secret recording

Omarosa Manigault

Omarosa was able to seemingly back claims of another tape when she played audio recording that appeared to be of the moment Chief of Staff John Kelly fired her from the White House.

"No... I, I, Nobody even told me about it", Trump said.

The recording which aired on NBC's "Meet The Press" reveals Kelly discussing with Newman her "integrity violations" in her roles as director for the White House Office of the Public Liaison and assistant to the president.

Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, called Manigault Newman's recording "wildly inappropriate" and suggested she may have violated the law.

In the recording, which Manigault Newman quotes extensively in her new book, "Unhinged", Kelly can be heard saying that he wants to talk with Manigault Newman about leaving the White House.

In the book Omarosa only describes hearing about the tape from anonymous sources.

Nobody is quite sure about whether or not Trump has a pee tape somewhere out there, but given how dependent some of Donald's business interests are on Russian loans, Putin doesn't need one.

She said she released the clip - which security experts have declared a massive breach of standards - to defend herself from a White House administration which constantly lies.

Reports have been circulating for years that outtakes from the reality television show exist in which Trump can be heard saying the N-word.

The claims Manigault Newman made in her soon-to-be-released book have been receiving swift backlash from the people she used to work with in the West Wing.

The former White House staffer detailed her claim in her forthcoming book, writing that the offer was a way to keep her from speaking out.

Manigault-Newman was one of Trump's longest-serving associates, "the only person aside from his daughter who'd known and worked alongside him for more than a decade", CNN reported.

Also, during the Meet the Press interview, Todd pressed her on her past defenses of Trump's racism and misogyny, including when she said in 2016 that her hiring was proof that Trump isn't racist. "And now she writes a book and all of a sudden she's like an oracle".

"The president is frustrated that the attorney general recused himself in early March of 2017 from anything having to do with the campaign", she said.

"I was complicit and for that I regret", the former Apprentice contestant said.

"But what I know now, I didn't have the benefit of in 2003, or 2004, or 2010", she added.

Manigault Newman had indeed been a staunch defender of the president for years, including pushing back, as the highest-profile African-American in the White House, on accusations that he was racist.
