White House paranoia deepens after Omarosa tapes

White House paranoia deepens after Omarosa tapes

But Trump said the former producer of the show called him to say there was no tape of him using the word.

Manigault Newman also says she believes "at this point", Trump will be impeached.

She then slammed reporters for giving attention to Manigault Newman's new book on her time in the White House, in which she alleges the president uttered the N-word, something Sanders would neither confirm nor deny, criticizing also coverage of last weekend's white nationalist rally in Washington, D.C.

The revelations surrounding Omarosa Manigault Newman's new memoir, and the ensuing fallout, are underscoring a level of dysfunction many now see as just part of life under President Donald Trump.

Manigault Newman said she talked to Kelly in the Situation Room, a highly secured room in the White House, where personal devices aren't allowed.

United States president Donald Trump's representatives have launched legal action against former adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman, alleging she breached a secrecy agreement. "They want me out there talking more". In a very short period of time, I will get rid of her.

"While I know it's "not presidential" to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible", he wrote on Twitter.

Manigault Newman clearly wasn't the only one who felt she needed to protect herself with audio recordings.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Omarosa Manigault (R) attend a church service, in Detroit, Michigan, U.S., September 3 2016.

Cohen paid Clifford $130,000 to keep quiet about a sexual encounter she said she had with Trump.

Huckabee Sanders then went on the offensive by excoriating the media for giving Manigault-Newman air time while she plugs Unhinged. Already she's released a recording of a phone call she got from Trump after she was sacked in December, in which Trump played dumb about it. Omarosa claims old "Apprentice" tapes exist of Trump using the N-word and revealed that she secretly recorded Chief of Staff John Kelly firing her in the Situation Room this past January, as well as making other recordings of conversations with Trump and aides. "I don't love you leaving at all". "Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!". She played portions of the recordings on "Meet the Press" on Sunday and Monday on "Today".

Donald Trump has committed an impeachable offense by branding a former aide who wrote a tell-all book 'a dog'. This NDA can no more contractually bind her to surrender her First Amendment rights than could the NDA she was offered after her departure from government.

The Trump campaign is now seeking millions from Ms Manigault-Newman on grounds or her apparently breaking a non-disclosure agreement. The former reality television star was the highest-ranking black employee in the White House.

Critics condemned Trump's tweet for what they said were racial and sexist undertones. "Mr. Trump is a white supremacist, he has surrounded himself with white supremacists, and everything that comes out of that White House is racist".
