AP: Omarosa has secretly recorded video as well as audio

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman reportedly has video tapes, text messages and other forms of documentation from her time in the Trump administration in addition to the audio recordings she’s been releasing in promotion of her tell-all memoir “Unhinged.”

The Associated Press, citing a source with direct knowledge about the recordings, reported Friday that Manigault Newman is also planning on selectively releasing some of the videos, emails and texts.

The New York Times had reported Thursday that the former aide may have up 200 tapes with information on the president and people in his inner circles.

Multiple Trump aides are reportedly concerned that they will appear on the tapes.

{mosads}Manigault Newman has been releasing the tapes as she promotes her new book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.”

In the book, she alleges that a tape exists of Trump using the n-word during tapings of his reality show “The Apprentice,” on which she was a contestant.

She has since claimed that she has heard the tape herself, and released a recording this week of Trump campaign staffers in 2016 discussing the potential fallout of the tape’s release.

Manigault Newman also released a recording on Thursday of Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, offering the former White House official a job on the president’s reelection campaign, after Manigualt Newman was fired late last year.

Lara Trump can be heard on the recording offering Manigault Newman $15,000 a month for the campaign job.

Lara Trump hit back after the former aide released the tape, saying she hoped “it’s all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can’t put a price on.” 

President Trump has attacked the former staffer himself as well, calling her a “dog” and a “lowlife.”
