The nation was stunned over the weekend when former Trump staffer and ally turned against him.
Omarosa Manigault Newman was a long-time employee of Donald Trump’s. She worked with him on his acclaimed reality show. Later she worked for the Trump organization, his campaign, and the White House.
Now, to sell her “tell-all” book, she is attacking the very man that made her career. Insanity.
But with all the leaked tapes and audio, it seems like Omarosa’s dug herself a deep pit.
During Sunday’s “Kasie DC” on MSNBC, former Obama U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance advised former White House staffer and “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman to get a lawyer because she “likely” committed a crime in secretly taping White House chief of staff John Kelly as he fired her.
“There’s likely a technical crime or two that’s been committed here,” Vance told host Kasie Hunt. “Obviously, prosecutors don’t choose to prosecute every technical crime that’s been committed, but she probably should get herself a lawyer.”

It’s clear the audio she released is a big nothing burger. So, she has John Kelly respectfully letting her go. Wow. What a bombshell.
News today is she also recorded Trump during a conversation. Both audio recordings address her dismissal from the White House. None of the audio proves any of the wild claims she is making about Trump or his “mental decline.”
The mainstream media is clearly excited about the story. A former Trump aid becoming a turncoat? That must mean his administration is in shambles.
But in reality, it only proves one thing. Omarosa will do anything to get attention. Perhaps to sell her book.
Even if that means violating the law.
It’s very probably that secretly recording John Kelly in the White House is a crime. What is discussed during meetings in the administration is generally confidential. On top of that, staffers are required to sign agreements that they are not to share what they know.
Yet Omarosa is not only sharing—she is providing audio tapes to the media. That’ll create some serious problems for her.
Perhaps she should look up a good lawyer. But definitely not Michael Cohen.
