Sources Say Omarosa Has Secret Trump Recordings
The great Mariah Carey once said, “If there’s a camera up in here, then I better not catch this flick on YouTube!” In this case, that flick may be necessary evidence. Multiple sources have confirmed to The Daily Beast that the Apprentice star and former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault-Newman has secretly recorded West Wing conversations with Donald Trump. She’s allegedly using these recordings as a prop of sorts for her upcoming tell-all book, Unhinged.
Multiple sources have confirmed that White House workers have heard them, and call these recordings “the Omarosa tapes” amongst themselves but those same sources are downplaying the context of these private conversations as mere “chatter,” with Trump’s voice captured.
Trump reportedly despised the idea of being recorded without his knowledge. But Omarosa wasn’t the only makeshift audio engineer in the White House. Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen was the first. In February, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah told reporters:
“Omarosa…had limited contact with the president while here.”
Simon & Schuster, Omarosa’s publisher for Unhinged, hasn’t confirmed or denied the existence of the recordings. A spokesperson for them issued this statement:
“Without commenting on the specific contents of UNHINGED, we are confident that Omarosa Manigault Newman can substantiate her highly-anticipated account of life inside the Trump White House.”
Is Omarosa hiding something we need to know about president Trump?
