Omarosa warns Trump may become 'unhinged' over Cohen testimony
Trump

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, speaking on MNBC Saturday Night, says that President Trump will become "unhinged" if former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen discusses Trump's children -- especially his daughter Ivanka -- during congressional testimony.


“THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT BIG RED LINE FOR DONALD TRUMP IS HIS CHILDREN, PARTICULARLY IVANKA,” SAID MANIGAULT NEWMAN TO HOST ALEX WITT. “AND ONCE MICHAEL COHEN STARTS SHARING DETAILS THAT MAY ACTUALLY IMPLICATE THEM, YOU WILL SEE HIM TRULY BECOME, WELL, UNHINGED.”

Cohen is expected to testify publicly this coming Wednesday before the House Oversight Committee, as well as in  private before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday. Cohen is viewed as a key figure amongst Trump confidants, halving serves as the President's personal lawyer and "fixer" for many years.

The House Oversight Committee has said that the testimony will be limited, though Manigault Newman expects Cohen to go deeper, perhaps bringing up the president's children.

Manigault Newman, a former contestant on "The Apprentice," hosted by Donald Trump before he was president, was let go by the White House in December 2017.

Manigault Newman has since written a book about her experiences in the White House, perhaps not coincidentally titled Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
