In New Tape, Lara Trump Offers Omarosa Manigault Newman "Hush Money"

One question: How did Omarosa get her recording devices into the White House, especially into the super-secret Situation Room? Lara Trump allegedly offered the deal after the family got wind of the New York Times article that said Omarosa might write a tell-all book about her dealings with the family after she was sacked from the Trump White House.

Manigault Newman has been releasing the tapes as she promotes her new book, "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House". Trump says, "We were talking about, like, 15K a month", or $180,000 a year.

"It would be the highest rated show on television", Trump responded.

Maher then highlighted some of the most controversial parts of the book, such as Trump allegedly bringing a tanning bed into the White House and Melania Trump allegedly planning to divorce him.

"I am not going anywhere".

A conversation she had with President Trump in the wake of her firing, in which he appears to be clueless about her removal. It might not exist and he may have never said it but I think it's safe to mark this down in the "imminent release" column. "Everything he throws at me - believe me, my tapes are much better than theirs". "I'll do what I have to do to protect myself".

Trump expects to revoke Ohr's security clearance
I suspect I'll be taking [his security clearance] away very quickly. If anything, I'm giving them a bigger voice", Trump said.

Manigault Newman was director of communications for a White House office that networks with various constituency groups until she was sacked last December by chief of staff John Kelly, citing "significant integrity issues".

In the lead-up to the publication of her book, the 41-year-old has been making waves with claims she has tapes from within the White House.

Television personality and former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman listens during an interview with The Associated Press, Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018, in NY. Lara Trump: "-keep everything, everybody positive, right?"

"They all told me that President Trump hadn't just dropped a single N-word bomb".

If Omarosa "is the one to get some traction on people seeing how truly raggedy this administration is enough to take action... we should reconsider letting her get a to-go plate from the cookout". The president has ranted on Twitter, his staff members have been forced to defend themselves on cable news and now Trump has sued Omarosa.
