White House blasts Omarosa for recording talks

HEAR IT Omarosa releases secret recording of John Kelly talking to her about 'leaving' the White House

Manigault Newman's book comes just months after the White House announced in February that she resigned as President Donald Trump's director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison. When we had planning meetings and stuff like that I got along with her.

The question of whether Manigault Newman could face prosecution for making the recordings in the Situation Room, or recording the president without his knowledge, has yet to be clarified. "I'm wondering, is he honest?"

Trump and the White House have responded by attacking her credibility, even though it was Trump who hired her.

"Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time", Trump said.

"Savannah, slow down", she said.

Newman's taping of her ouster sparked immediate criticism because she secretly recorded Kelly in the ultra-secure Situation Room, where cell phones and other electronic devices are prohibited.

"General Kelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave", Manigault Newman said. "I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!" he wrote in a series of posts on Twitter.

The former Trump supporter described the White House as a place 'where everybody lies'.

It looks like the President is not too sure what is going on here but was quick to slam Omarosa anyway. I just saw in the news you're thinking about leaving. Manigault Newman asks Guthrie, to which Guthrie exasperatingly replies, "Yes".

Trump has also praised her as a beacon of progress on the issues she worked on and said she is a "star".

She says, "I heard his voice as clear as you and I are sitting here". I didn't know that. "Goddamn it. I don't love you leaving at all".

In February, Politico reported that Manigault Newman was sacked for using a White House auto service as a pick-up and drop-off service.

The recording is the latest volley from the disgruntled 44-year-old, once an ardent Trump ally, and represents another stunning breach of presidential trust. "I'm not going to get into the tick tock of who knew what and when".

Manigault Newman was a contestant on Trump's "The Apprentice" reality show and later served as a senior adviser to the president. It was later reported that she was actually fired from her position.

The "consulting agreement" describes Manigault Newman's proposed services as "speaking appearances", "fundraising appearances" and "diversity outreach". Ms. Manigault Newman stood by the statement she made on "Meet the Press" that she believed the president did instruct Mr. Kelly to fire her. While the book is already being touted as a juicy tell-all of Manigault-Newman's brief tenure working with the Trump administration, the bombshell recordings are said to be extremely revealing.

What does the "Trump tape" say?

.

In audio NBC published online, Kelly tells Manigault Newman his concerns involve the "use of government vehicles and some other issues", and adds, "there's some money issues and other things, but from my view the integrity issues are very serious". God knows the Access Hollywood recording didn't seem to wipe much momentum off Trump's campaign.

Newman pushed back further against the framing of her dismissal by calling on the White House to release her personnel file to clear up what exactly happened.
