Omarosa Also Has Video, Emails and Texts to Support Book's Claims: AP

AP's Darlene Superville, Bloomberg


It's not just audiotapes.

Omarosa Manigault Newman has a stash of video, emails, text messages and other documentation supporting the claims in her tell-all book about her time in the Trump White House, a person with direct knowledge of the records told The Associated Press Friday.

*****

"I will not be silenced. I will not be intimidated. I'm not going to be bullied by Donald Trump," the former Trump aide told The Associated Press this week as she seemed to dismiss a threat from Trump's campaign. She spoke to the AP hours after Trump's campaign announced it was filing an arbitration action against her alleging she'd violated a signed agreement with the campaign that prohibits her from disclosing confidential information.

*****

She has already released several secret audio recordings, including of the meeting in which she was fired by Kelly.

In another recording, Trump's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, is heard offering Manigault Newman $15,000 a month - after she was fired from the White House - for a campaign job requiring her to be "positive." Lara Trump is a senior adviser on Trump's re-election campaign.

2. Hmmmm, we'll see. So far she's backed up some of her claims. If she can back up

... all of it she'll be talking to Mueller.

Still don't trust her, Cersie Lannister in real life

4. She said she already spoke to Mueller

And probably turned over whatever evidence she had. If so, I don't expect to hear much about those areas.

And Cersei is great. Cruel and cunning, but she blew up the entire kingdom.

6. Don't forget Ceraei had 3, soon to be 4 kids in an incestuous relationship

With her brother.

Shame! (If only we had a bell ringing emoticon)

9. This analogy is not very applicable. Not fictional Cersei Lannister.

3. If she had something world shaking

Why not release it now what's with waiting? Just to counter punch?

12. She gets them to put and publicize a lie, and then she releases the relevant tape.

That helps her stay at the top of the news cycle, helps sell books, reinforces the fact that the Trumpsters lie about everything without blinking an eye, stretches out their stress and the damage she does them, and because they attack her with provable lies, she gets to play the victim.

Right now every show is scrambling to book her for another tape drop, but if she dropped them all, or the best ones, at once, she would be old news. No one likes her, so the hosts and bosses would be happy to shove her out of the spotlight and focus only on the tapes. As it is now, though, they can't get the tapes without a long, face-to-face sit-down with Omarosa, and they don't know what the best tapes might be.

8. I thought this would be a bigger deal around here

It is top of page one material on many online papers.

Videos are exponentially more valuable than mere audio, especially if one (several) involves Trump and something juicy

13. I find it all very Shakespearean with lots of Greek tragedy added in the mix

We’re watching Trump’s reign destroyed from within because the hero (Trump) is deeply flawed and has overplayed his hand with his appointments of generals and officials who are either only in it for themselves or out to destroy him in order to gain wealth and fame.

Trump has sowed the seeds of his own destruction. His house will fall by his own doing.

14. She's enjoying herself too!

She’s the “best” of all the “best” people he brags he surrounded himself with.

He’s got the tiger by the tail now!
