Did anybody working with Trump NOT tape him?
Courtesy of the Daily Beast:
Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer, isn’t the only one with secretly recorded audio of the president.
Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell The Daily Beast that Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the infamous former Apprentice star who followed Trump to the White House, secretly recorded conversations with the president—conversations she has since leveraged while shopping her forthcoming “tell-all” book, bluntly titled UNHINGED.
For months, it has been rumored that Manigault had clandestinely recorded on her smartphone “tapes” of unspecified private discussions she had in the West Wing. Audio actually does exist, and even stars Manigault’s former boss.
One person confirmed to The Daily Beast they had heard at least one of her recordings featuring President Trump. Multiple sources familiar with the so-called “Omarosa tapes” described the recorded conversations between Trump and Manigault as anodyne, everyday chatter, but said they did appear to feature Trump’s voice, either over the phone or in-person.
I have no idea if there is anything scandalous on these tapes, but considering that they feature conversations with Donald Trump behind the scenes it is hard to imagine that they don’t.
Omarosa is a reality show drama queen, so to expect her to respect confidentiality, or the office of the president is ridiculous.
But then again since this is a ridiculous, reality show, drama-filled version of the presidency, it really just seems to be par for the course.
Update: Get this.
Apparently the Omarosa tape is shocking – Trump disparages the disabled, insults veterans and makes blatantly racist and sexist remarks. His presidency will not survive this.
