Omarosa Manigault Secretly Recorded Confidential White House Conversations: Report

Former reality TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman, who was fired late last year from her job as a Trump aide, reportedly recorded conversations about sensitive issues during her tenure in the White House.


Sources tell the New York Daily News that Omarosa “may have taped confidential West Wing conversations and fears being caught up in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.”

According to the publication’s sources, Omarosa has been lawyering up because she expects to soon become a witness in Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“Everyone knows Omarosa loves to record people and meetings using the voice notes app on her iPhone,” one source explained. “Don’t be surprised if she has secret audio files on everyone in that White House, past and present staffers included.”

The source also claimed that the White House’s recent decision to ban staffers from using their personal smartphones in the White House was because of Omarosa’s habit of recording conversations at all times.

Omarosa has been regularly dropping hints that she could drop bombshells on the Trump administration in the wake of her firing, as she said she had problems with the way the White House handled race-related controversies such as white supremacist riots in Charlottesville, Virginia.
