Omarosa Manigault Newman releases recording purportedly made in White House Situation Room

The Washington Post reported Friday that after being fired, Manigault Newman declined a $15,000-a-month job offer from President Trump’s campaign, which came with a nondisclosure agreement stating that she could not make disparaging comments about the campaign, Trump, Vice President Pence, their families, any Trump or Pence family company or asset, and that the agreement would survive even if her contract expired, was canceled or she was fired. The Post obtained copies of what Manigault Newman said was the job offer and the companion agreement.

In her interview with Todd, Manigault Newman said she considered the offer an attempt to buy her silence. “They were not offering a real job,” she said. “They told me I could work from home, if I wanted to work. They didn’t care if I showed up.”

.. Privately, many are wondering how many tapes she might have — and whether they are heard speaking on them.

Manigault has tapes of Trump speaking, a person familiar with the tapes said.

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.
