Ex-White House staffer releases tape of her firing

Bits of her conversation with the former marine in the high-security Situation Room were played on the air when she appeared as a guest on the National Broadcasting Co's Meet the Press program to promote her new book, Unhinged, which is being released next week. "Why shouldn't the president of the United States in the Oval Office indeed the few times that she was in there with him?" On Sunday, Omarosa released a tape she secretly made of her firing, in which Kelly describes "significant integrity issues". She denied misusing it. "I'm saying it right now: Release it so that the American people can see that I worked my butt off to make a difference in this country and they were working for ways to frame me". "People are making decisions about us, without us".

Press Secretary Sanders said: "It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media will now give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the President during her time in the administration".

Manigault Newman was a contestant on Trump's reality show, "The Apprentice", and later served as a Senior Adviser to the President.

But the Situation Room recording raised questions about whether she had breached security protocols in a room that is supposed to be devoid of personal electronic devices.

Yet, according to Manigault, her actions were not disloyal at all. "Why shouldn't we in the West Wing?"

While White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders flagged the "blatant disregard for national security", Singleton similarly sounded the alarm. White House officials and Trump have portrayed Newman and Cohen, who is under investigation in NY, as disgruntled and discredited figures.

Newman didn't specify when exactly the tape was from, but said that it was from Trump's time hosting the show and spinoffs through early 2015.

Gates says he helped Manafort hide payments
Gates repeatedly challenged Downing's characterization of certain events with astonishingly self-incriminating frankness. At first, Gates merely noted that in March 2016 Manafort hired him to work for "one of the presidential candidates".

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

"And I think that Omarosa, unfortunately, has undercut her own credibility", Conway added.

She said she had "heard for two years that it existed, and once I heard it for myself, it was confirmed, what I feared the most: That Donald Trump is a con and has been masquerading as someone who is actually open to engaging with diverse communities".

He can be heard in another clip aired by the network Sunday morning suggesting a smooth exit would help her reputation, a remark that Manigault Newman told NBC she took as a threat.

But she said that, after finishing her book, she had gone to Los Angeles to visit a person who had a copy of the tape in which Trump is said to use the slur.

As Todd read quote after quote over several years in which Manigault Newman defended Trump in public, she said she had played a role in selling the administration's version of reality to the public, calling herself "totally complicit". "They told me I could work from home, if I wanted to work. And obviously I, I felt miserably".
