NYT: Omarosa believed to have as many as 200 tapes
Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman is reportedly believed to have scores of recordings from her time working for President Trump, leaving other aides concerned.
The New York Times reported on Thursday that Manigault Newman could have as many as 200 tapes that may contain information about the president and people close to him.
The newspaper reported that a number of Trump administration aides have expressed concern that they too will make an appearance on Manigault Newman’s other tapes as she continues to release bombshell recordings in promotion of her new tell-all book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.”
The report arrives on the heels of a recording released by Manigault Newman on Thursday morning showing the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump offering the former aide a job following her dismissal from the White House last year.
In the recording, Trump offered Manigault Newman $15,000 a month to work on the president’s campaign shortly after she was fired.
Trump later on Thursday hit back at the former White House aide over the secret recording, saying: “I hope it’s all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can’t put a price on.”
The audio is the fourth separate recording Manigault Newman has released in the past several days. She has also teased the existence of additional tapes and claims the recordings are necessary to defend her credibility as the White House and President Trump continue to attack it.
Trump has in recent days labeled Manigault Newman a “dog,” “wacky and deranged” and a “lowlife.”
