Omarosa Has Undercut Her Credibility

"Ever." She did not say which "inappropriate things" she had heard.

The alleged revelation came as Newman released audio she secretly recorded when she was booted from the White House in December.

"The first time I ever heard Omarosa suggest those terrible things about this president are in this book", Conway said, referencing Newman's upcoming memoir that depicts Trump as a narcissist and a racist.

On Sunday, Manigault Newman did not address those issues.

"We want to talk to you about leaving the White House", Kelly said, as he cited integrity issues for her leaving. "And it's - and I also never heard Omarosa complain that he had done that".

"They continue to deceive this nation by how mentally declined he is". "I was complicit and for that, I regret".

"The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room shows a blatant disregard for our national security", Sanders said in a statement. Former national security officials said it was not clear whether Manigault Newman had broken any laws, but she certainly violated the rules around what is supposed to be one of the most secure rooms in the capital.

Manigault Newman worked in the White House for almost a year as an assistant to the president and the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.

Trump was responding to a question from the press pool about Manigault Newman's tell-all memoir that was announced this week.

Chief of Staff John Kelly, left, can allegedly be heard telling Newman she can look at her time at the White House as a year of "service to the nation". "The fact that she was recording a conversation in there, really, raises alarm bells in the minds of people who have worked in that room".

Nicholas Corsellis, prosecuting, told the jury: "Mr Cunningham observed Mr Stokes's behaviour towards them". Mr Spure described seeing Stokes punch Ali, who was trying to get away, with a "clenched fist" in the road.

"They take me into the Situation Room, the doors are locked, they tell me I can't leave and they start to threaten me, put fear in me, to put me under duress", she said.

"I protected myself because this is a White House where everybody lies; the president lies to the American people, [the press secretary] Sarah Huckabee stands in front of the country and lies every day". It is the same amount that a few others who have departed the White House under inauspicious circumstances are receiving.

"Rob Porter is accused of allegedly abusing his wives", she said.

"You don't know that you're in that situation until it just keeps bubbling and bubbling", she added. This has to do with some pretty serious integrity violations.

Newman said she would love for the White House to release her personnel files. "I was the only African American at the table", she said. She later declined an offer to work on Trump's 2020 campaign and did not sign a confidentiality agreement.

But the other recording she discussed Sunday could prove equally explosive.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer told ABC News her claims are "completely fictional". Even Trump had begun wearying of Manigault Newman's omnipresence in meetings by the middle of his first year, those people said.

"I have documentation, a whole treasure-trove of documentation for everything you see in this book", she said.

Manigault Newman's book and recent revelations about her recordings have received significant pushback from the White House, and numerous claims she has made are unverifiable, leading to finger-pointing and accusations of dishonesty from both Manigault Newman and top Trump allies. She will also appear Monday morning on NBC's "Today".
