Just weeks after a few of Omarosa Manigault Newman’s secret recordings from the White House were made public, a new report revealed she taped ‘nearly every conversation’ during her time as an aide to the president.
A source, who said they witnessed Manigault Newman make the tapes, told Axios she even captured a conversation that involved ‘all of the Trumps’ in one meeting.
The source told the outlet she carried two cell phones with her – a personal and government-issued device – and hid them inside a purse or pocket when she taped the conversations.
Manigault Newman was also reportedly seemed paranoid and concerned that what ‘happened to Hillary Clinton and her emails (would) happen to her.’
The reality show star ‘wouldn’t write on email or text,’ the source said, while adding that ‘many conversations happened on Facebook Messenger.’
Manigault Newman said the recordings were a form a protection and means of reference.
One of the conversations exposed last month was Manigault Newman’s firing by chief of staff John Kelly in the high-security Situation Room.
Parts of the were played on the air during an appearance on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ to promote Manigault Newman’s new book, ‘Unhinged,’ which has seen a slump in sales.
The tell-all memoir from the controversial reality star released on August 14, and dropped more than 40 percent in sales this week.
The recording took place in the room that is a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility. Staff are not permitted to bring in cell phones or other recording devices.
Small lockers have been positioned outside the door so aides can securely leave prohibited devices during critical meetings.
