Recent reports made alleges that a former White House aide secretly recorded President Trump’s conversations and may have played those recordings for others. If this is true, I for one would hate to be in this person’s shoes!
According to RWN, Omarosa Manigault-Newman is a former aide to President Trump. It turns out that she secretly recorded private conversations she had with the president. Trump will be furious if she goes public with them. The president is fond of Omarosa and it must have hurt to find out she did this after all he did for her. Multiple sources are now reporting this according to the Daily Beast.
At one time, Omarosa was a contestant on Trump’s reality show “The Apprentice.” I didn’t watch the show, but I understand she was on there more than once. She is now coming out with a tell-all book about her experiences in the White House. The title is “Unhinged” and is set to be released on Aug. 14. The title alone does not bode well and it is sure to be a hot topic on media and for sales in general.
If this is true and it probably is, Omarosa would not be the only person to have recorded her interactions with the president. Trump’s longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, also recorded private conversations with President Trump. I’m not an attorney, but that would seem to violate client-attorney privilege. One such recording was recently released and revealed Trump discussing possible payment to a former Playboy model with whom he was accused of having an affair. But according to Rudy Giuliani who now represents the president, the tape was modified. That matters for context and for legal ramifications as well. The White House is understandably not commenting on any of this at this time.
For months, it has been rumored that Manigault had clandestinely recorded on her smartphone “tapes” of unspecified private discussions she had in the West Wing. Audio actually does exist, and even stars Manigault’s former boss.
One person confirmed to The Daily Beast they had heard at least one of her recordings featuring President Trump. Multiple sources familiar with the “Omarosa tapes” described the recorded conversations between Trump and Manigault as anodyne, everyday chatter, but said they did appear to feature Trump’s voice, either over the phone or in-person.
The mere existence of such recordings represents a dramatic betrayal of trust by a onetime confidante who has since abandoned years of professed loyalty to the president and has apparently decided to profit off her years of closeness to Trump…
