Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman added a major new twist to the timeline of Russian meddling in the 2016 election by claiming that President Donald Trump knew the content of the stolen emails that were released by Wikileaks — prior to the public publishing of the documents.

“I will say this, that there was a lot of corruption that went on, both in the campaign and in the White House, I am not going to blow the whistle on all of it,” Manigault-Newman promised during an interview with MSNBC’s Katy Tur on Tuesday.

“You were instructed according to the book to bring up the emails at every point you could at the end of the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton’s emails,” Tur noted. “Did Donald Trump know about the emails before they came out?”

“Absolutely,” Manigault-Newman replied.

“He knew about them before Wikileaks released them?” Tur followed up, to confirm.

“Yes,” she replied again.

“You are saying that he had a back channel?” Tur asked.

“You said that, I didn’t,” she answered. “I will expose the corruption in the White House and I will continue to blow the whistle about it.”

If you listen to the whole interview you will hear Omarosa say that Trump had derogatory nicknames for everybody and only kept Hope Hicks around for her looks.

I did not want today to be all Omarosa all the time, but this is like a slow motion train wreck and it is impossible to look away.

    I’ll never be a fan of Omarosa, but I will admit she has a shred of credibility regarding the tapes. I never thought she had them in the first place. From the way she’s releasing them, my guess is she has more than three.

    It would be hilarious if Omarosa had tapes of her most damning allegations against Trump. Live by reality TV, die by reality TV!

      No. She has zero credibility, she is just getting in the spotlight to sell books to the Trump hate crowd. She has proven nothing, and has nothing to back up her claims. She says she has heard tapes of people talking about something Trump allegedly said. That is akin to a conversation in the comments on this website, as if two people said something about Trump, then that is… proof of something lol. It is ridiculous that people fall for this crap. Policy folks! Policy. Hating on Trump and buying into every hucksters ‘allegations’ is NOT going to help the Democrats win ANYTHING.

    “MS. SANDERS: I’m not going to get into the back-and-forth on who has signed an NDA here at the White House. I can tell you that it’s common in a lot of places for employees to sign NDAs, including in government, particularly anyone with a security clearance.

    This is not true. An NDA is first of all not binding when it was done by a private company for a federal employee, but also, NDAs are not required nor should they be in a democratic government. They were not used by Obama, or Bush 43, or Clinton. So that would be a “NO” they are NOT “common.””

    You ever wonder how many non-disclosure agreements Obama had to insist on in his working lifetime? Is there any grade of loyally greater than the kind inspired by a boss whose example coaxes the cleanest motives of your own?

    “Nobody who has a bad word to say about Trump can remain in his government for long. They must be removed, smeared, and discredited.”
    “Make no mistake, America – Peter Strzok is no longer an FBI agent for one reason: He dared to be a government official who dared to insult Donald Trump. That’s it. And that is the sort of thing that should happen in Russia or North Korea, not the United States of America.

    We should all be very, very afraid.”

    It would be great if she has evidence that Trump knew about the hacked emails before they were released and collusion.
    Trump is the kind of person you need to tape what he says because he habitually lies. Comey had no one in the room when Trump asked him to drop the Flynn case. Now Giuliani and Trump schemed to again change the story that the conversation did not happen. Amarosa made a wise decision to tape them.

    Wonder if Mueller has interviewed her?

    Hear he is taking her to arbitration, let’s see if she can be bought off or is going to continue to expose him.

    “The answer of course is “no.” The fact that Trump appears to be absolutely fixated on Omarosa — and the book she wrote about her time in the White House — speaks to the fact that Trump is concerned about what impact the allegations she makes about him might have.”
    ” it’s not hard to see what draws Trump to Omarosa: She is, in many ways, just like him. She gets that drama works, that being the center of attention is all that matters, that death isn’t bad press but no press. She’s willing to do whatever it takes to win — and remember that winning is understood by the likes of Trump and Omarosa by simply being essential or relevant.”

    I have to laugh because trump’s tweets make him look like the lying,crazy loser and Omarosa’s interviews make her look like the reasonable one,even to those of us that can’t stand her.

    If she really has evidence that he knew about the hacking ahead of time,why hasn’t she turned it over to the FBI or has she?

    Poetic justice for trump,taken down by a monster that he created.

      Omarosa has nothing and will not be taking down Trump. She is selling books, like all the others that have sold books off of Trump winning the Oval Office, who have been ‘retired’ due to dereliction of duty.

    She can’t discuss the campaign because of the NDA. But if Mueller subpoenas her she can. She practically begging him to dipose her.

    “According to Bloomberg’s analysis of data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “While the U.S. economy has added about 700,000 jobs held by black workers since Trump took office, it added about 3 million while Obama was in office.”

    Indeed, this claim was so false that Sanders was forced to issue a correction:
    Correction from today’s briefing: Jobs numbers for Pres Trump and Pres Obama were correct, but the time frame for Pres Obama wasn’t. I’m sorry for the mistake, but no apologies for the 700,000 jobs for African Americans created under President Trump”

      “When it came to Trump’s use of the word “dog” to attack Omarosa, Colbert said that they found several cases in which Trump has called someone a dog. The attack was so frequent that it made the CBS host wonder why he hates dogs so much.

      “He should love dogs. You don’t have to pay to watch them pee,” “

    • Anonymous August 15, 2018 at 3:13 am

      trump didn’t create 700,000 jobs for African Americans, the CEO and companies created the jobs.

    “Omarosa said she “regrets” that and acknowledged that she was “totally complicit.” While he once “inspired” her to become a business success, she said, “Boy has he been a great disappointment.”

    “I was blindly loyal,” she said. “And I look like the biggest dummy following this person, because I didn’t have that same perspective. And sometimes you have to step back in order to get a clear view. And I recognize that I was going down the wrong path with Trump.””

    Trump should stop using “dog” to badmouth people. Dogs are wonderful. They don’t deserve this slur. Shame on Trump and his hate of dogs. I suspect that he would love to use the N word towards Omarosa and dog is his next go to word. I wish there’s a special hell for people who slur dogs.

    ” Martha Mitchell, the wife of John Mitchell, who was attorney general in the first Nixon administration and ran the Committee to Re-elect the President, also known as CREEP.” “slush fund”>”hush MonEy”
    “George Stephanopoulos broke that norm when he wrote his memoir shortly after leaving the Clinton White House and shared a lot of information that embarrassed his former boss.
    The most famous reality-show villain on television, known only by her first name — like Cher or Madonna — Omarosa almost certainly took the job with the Trump campaign in the first place because it would afford her this opportunity to turn the screws on her show-business mentor, Donald Trump. That’s how reality shows work. It was scripted in the stars.” “As the Watergate scandal unfolded, Martha Mitchell was considered a ticking time bomb, and Nixon’s supporters went to great lengths to portray her as a lunatic who was not to be believed. At one point a bodyguard physically restrained her from speaking to UPI reporter Helen Thomas by yanking the phone out of the wall. Later, on her husband’s supposed orders, Mitchell was held down, tranquilized and kept under lock and key for several days. This was all known in real time as the story was unfolding but was largely relegated to the “women’s pages” and treated as a sideshow.”

    “On Tuesday, Omarosa said something else that echoed Mitchell’s insistent charges from all those years ago. She told Katy Tur of MSNBC that she had spoken to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team and told him that Trump knew about the Clinton campaign’s emails before they were released by WikiLeaks. Who knows? Maybe she’s got the tapes to prove ~IT~.

    Richard Nixon himself told David Frost in their famous series of interviews, “If it hadn’t been for Martha there’d have been no Watergate. The point of the matter is that if John had been watchin’ that store, Watergate would never have happened.” If that’s so, here’s to Martha Mitchell, unsung hero of that scandal. And if reality show villain Omarosa can prove that Donald Trump knew about the Russian hacking operation in advance, then whatever her motives are, she’ll be a hero tOO.”

    “ackers or bots tried different username-password combinations in a rapid-fire sequence over a two-and-a-half-month period to get inside the campaign’s WordPress-hosted website. According to the campaign, there were also more than 130,000 so-called brute force attempts over a month-long period to gain administrator access to the campaign’s server via the cloud-server company that hosted the Keirstead campaign’s website.”

    “The reality is that no one in the White House knows who she taped or what she has.” ” ~IT~ is a form of psychological WARfare, and now that the shoe is on the other foot, the Trump team is showing how weak and vulnerable they are.”
    “Omarosa is beating Trump at his own game,”

    “”Unless Omarosa is a Russian plant,” said Tanden, “these are night and day.””>’“People are terrified,” one former Trump aide said of the tapes. “Absolutely terrified.” “Former senior staffers also said they felt safer because Manigault Newman was not included in small, high-level meetings. And they doubted that she taped the one broader senior staff meeting that she attended, which included about 25 people.

    “But if I was on the communications staff, where she was interacting more with people,” said another former senior administration official, “I can see how people might be nervous.””

    “All staff for all administrations, including Trump’s, are bound by the laws and rules that proscribe the release of material under the rubric of national security. And classified material cannot be released until it is declassified. But the courts have refused to restrict federal employees’ First Amendment rights about their time in government service, Moss said ― meaning Manigault Newman will be able to say whatever she wants about her time as a top White House adviser.”

    “Her official title was communications director for the White House’s Office of Public Liaison, but it was never clear what she actually did in that job in the 11 months she held it before Kelly fired her.’
    “The president also claimed this week that Manigault Newman had poor relationships with her co-workers, and that the only reason he let her continue at the White House was that she publicly praised him. RIGHT!>

    “Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me – until she got fired!””

    ““If you are not allowed legally to disparage the president or his family or anything that they have to do with, any company that they have or asset that they have, why can we believe anything that you say?””
    “The Washington Post, meanwhile, reports that copies of Trump NDAs that have either been given or described to its reporters “lay out breathtakingly broad prohibitions on behavior and appear to be drawn heavily from similar contracts used in the past by the Trump Organization, the president’s family firm.”

    “Under one agreement from the 2016 campaign, signers promised not to ‘demean or disparage publicly’ Trump, his company or any member of his family — and also not to assist any other politician exploring a federal or state office,” the Post adds. “An agreement circulated in the White House last year barred signers from sharing any information they had learned in the building, according to several aides who signed the document.””

    She also says the best way to neutralize Trump and drive him nuts is to ignore him. He thrives on conflict and attention. We all know this. If there was an organized, concerted effort to completely shun him, he’d fold. But the WHPC can’t even skip a briefing even though Hucksterbee is a liar and they are under constant attack professionally and personally.

    How many days of a Trump blackout would it take before he folded? It might bring on that coronary.
