Omarosa claims she heard Trump N-word tape after book's publication

  • Omarosa Manigault then-director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison center speaks in the East Room of the White House in Washington before the start of President Donald Trump's

But national security experts say recording a conversation in the Situation Room, though unbeknownst to Kelly at the time, constitutes exactly the sort of integrity violation of which she was accused - and worse, it was a potential security breach in a room that's meant to be one of the most locked-down in Washington. "People around him try to reinforce that manufactured reality".

"If I didn't have these recordings, no one in America would believe me", Manigault Newman told NBC during an interview to promote her book Unhinged, an explosive tell-all about her days in the White House before she was sacked in December. Moreover, the particular tape recording machine does not operate the way she had claimed; simply pressing the foot pedal to "record" would not initiate a recording unless the play button was being manually depressed at the very same time.

Spicer rebutted Manigault Newman's claim that he signed a non-disclosure agreement and called her assertion that he was paid hush money "false". The famous room, which is located behind a locked door in the basement of the West Wing of the White House, is known to be the most secure and technologically advanced places in the USA government so for Omarosa's firing to be done in the room indicates those involved wanted it to be under wraps.

The former aide to President Trump did not specify exactly when the tape was purported to have been recorded, but said it was from the POTUS' time as the host of the corporate reality TV show The Apprentice.

Trump doubles steel and aluminium tariffs on Turkey as lira nosedives
The views expressed in this article belong to the author and do not necessarily reflect the editorial policy of Middle East Eye. The economic spat between the U.S. and Turkey has continued to escalate today, as the struggling lira currency plunges in value.

Ms Newman, whose tell-all book about her White House tenure is to be released tomorrow, left the administration in December. In the book, Newman describes hearing about the tape but not hearing it herself.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, then White House Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison, sits behind President Trump. "I heard his voice, as clear as you and I are sitting here", she told Todd, adding: "It confirmed that he is truly a racist".

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.

"In fact, I had a blind spot where it came to Donald Trump", she said. I wanted to see the best in him. "And obviously I, I felt miserably".

Ex-Manafort Accountant Given the Pink Slip After Testifying
He also refused to let them ask Manafort's former business associate Rick Gates about his reported extramarital affairs. He told jurors how he disguised millions of dollars in foreign income as loans in order to lower Manafort's tax bill.

"They were not offering me a real job", Manigault Newman said on NBC. It is the same amount that a few others who have departed the White House under inauspicious circumstances are receiving.

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway responded on ABC's This Week that confidentiality agreements in the White House exist for a reason.

Conway said Manigault Newman was manufacturing events.

"I think it's important to understand that if we make this a friendly departure, we can all be, you know, you could look at your time here in the White House as a year of service to the nation, and you can go on without any type of difficulty in the future relative to your reputation", he said.

Browns get $3.5 million in escrow back from Corey Coleman deal
The team has reportedly agreed to trade wide receiver Corey Coleman to the Buffalo Bills , according to ESPN's Adam Schefter . This Browns-Bills exchange follows the trade of former Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland in March.

Manigault Newman's differences with Kelly have been noted before and make up something of a subplot in her recent book where she parts starkly with Trump and criticizes his character.
