Reality Contestant Turned White House Aide Secretly Taped Trump Conversations

A former West Wing aide tape recorded conversations with President Trump, creating a fresh issue for a White House already displeased over the level of leaks of internal deliberations, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Omarosa Manigault-Newman, a former contestant in Mr. Trump’s reality TV program, taped high-level administration officials and Mr. Trump during her tenure as an assistant to the president, these people said.

.. Ms. Manigault-Newman is coming out with a book this month called “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.” It is unclear if she is including the taped conversations in the book.

.. People familiar with the tapes said they hadn’t heard that she captured any particularly revealing comments from the president.
