Secretly taping conversations is not unknown in Trump world

Hannah Rogers | 14 August, 2018, 09:25

After the recordings were made public, Trump lashed out her on Twitter, calling her "Wacky Omarosa". White House financial disclosures revealed that she "received a wedding package which included a wedding dress, custom veil, and accessories with an estimated value of $25,000 in exchange for appearance on TLC's Say Yes to the Dress".

The Guardian also notes that Omarosa does not write in the book that she has ever heard him say the word, either on tape or in person. She adds he behaves badly when Melania is away and is often misogynistic. Look at her MANY recent quotes saying such wonderful and powerful things about me - a true Champion of Civil Rights - until she got fired.

"She wore that jacket to hurt Trump", Manigault Newman writes. That would make him utterly clueless about what was going on in his own White House.

A recording Manigault-Newman secretly made of her firing shows the chief of staff citing 'some pretty, in my opinion, significant integrity issues'.

While Manigault Newman's claims appear to make sense in the context she provides them, the jury is still out on how truthful her new book is overall.

In an effort to undermine Manigault Newman's credibility, White House aides have noted that she was previously effusive in her praise of Trump before, during and immediately after her stint in the White House. After her stint on Celebrity Big Brother - where she compared the WH to a plantation, among other things - Manigault announced the book, which was described by publisher Simon & Schuster as a "stunning tell-all and takedown".

"Wacky Omarosa, who got fired three times on The Apprentice, now got fired for the last time".

Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told a morning television show Monday Manigault Newman may have broken the law.

"I took it all kind of at face value", she said.

"Just having him call me out of my name, call me a lowlife, say that I'm not intelligent, this is what he does when it comes to African-Americans", she said. Ouch! Her promotional tour is going to be a very short one if she keeps being rude to her interviewers. He told the Associated Press he had "never heard of a more serious breach of protocol". "And as a result, I resigned", she said. Mr. Trump came to office vowing to hire "only the best people" - but has struggled to put a lid on leaks, incompetence, backbiting and scandal inside his White House.

America First PAC, the political action committee backing Trump, and the RNC have paid Parscale, the former head of the 2016 campaign's digital media outreach effort, who is now the campaign manager for Trump's nascent reelection bid, in 15 separate payments of $15,000 from March 2017 to June 2018.

But the campaign official said the onetime Trump booster, now the president's sworn enemy, had already signed a almost identical one a year and a half earlier.

"The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room, shows a blatant disregard for our national security-and then to brag about it on national television further proves the lack of character and integrity of this disgruntled former White House employee", Sanders said in a August 12 statement.
