On Thursday, Omarosa Manigault-Newman released another audio tape between her and a member of the Trump family.
In the secret recording, Omarosa is heard speaking with Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump.
“It sounds a little like there’s something you’ve got in the back pocket to pull out,” Lara says in the recording. “Everybody’s positive, right?”
“I think we can work something out where we keep you along those lines.”
It sounded like Trump was offering her money for her silence, Omarosa said.
“I saw this as an attempt to buy my silence, to censor me, to pay me off.”
She also noted that their story regarding her firing keeps shifting. “This family can’t keep their story straight,” Omarosa said.
Trump also called her “so articulate.”
“I think it’s important as people question the credibility of everything you see in Unhinged…I think it’s important not only to point to these things but to also blow the whistle on the corruption in this family, in this administration, in this campaign,” Omarosa told MSNBC’s Craig Melvin.
Although hardly the first Trump aide to leave to White House on bad terms, Omarosa appears to have uniquely upset the president. Vanity Fair reported that people close to Trump say he’s “furious” at Omarosa and has even said that he wants to have her arrested by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Her previous tapes included a conference call with Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson in which they discuss whether a tape exists of President Donald Trump using the N-word, a call with John Kelly in which he tells her that she’s fired, and a condolence call from the president.

‘Any other attorney general would resign’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe scalds Barr for ‘lying’ about FBI
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough scalded Attorney General William Barr for lying about the inspector general report he ordered to justify President Donald Trump's conspiracy theories.
The Department of Justice's inspector general failed to find evidence of an FBI plot against Trump's 2016 campaign, but Barr publicly disagreed with those findings and insisted there was not enough justification to launch the Russia investigation.
"His lie about Barack Obama, you know, crawling around Trump Tower like bugging his phone, a lie," Scarborough said. "The lie from the attorney general of the United States, just shocking, that FBI agents, quote, 'spied,' spied on the president of the United States -- a lie."
These homes for mentally ill adults have been notoriously mismanaged. Now, one is a gruesome crime scene.
Oceanview Manor Home for Adults, a psychiatric group home at the center of a yearslong legal battle over the rights of people with mental illness, is now the scene of a criminal investigation involving the death of a resident and the arrest of another.
On the afternoon of Dec. 3, workers at the Oceanview Manor Home for Adults found resident Ann McGrory, 58, lying on the floor, lifeless, with her pants down around her ankles. She had cuts and bruises on her hands, head and face. By her side, seated atop his bed in Room 512, was resident Frank Thompson, 64, her sometimes-boyfriend who had a reputation at the home as a heavy drinker with a short temper. The aides called police. Thompson was brought into custody for questioning later that day and placed under arrest on Wednesday.
New York City paid McKinsey millions to stem jail violence. Instead, violence soared.
The corporate consulting firm reported bogus numbers and flailed in a project at Rikers Island. Today, assaults and other attacks there are up almost 50%.
In April 2017, partners from McKinsey & Company sent a confidential final report to the New York City corrections commissioner. They had spent almost three years leading an unusual project for a white-shoe corporate consulting firm like McKinsey: Attempting to stem the tide of inmate brawls, gang slashings and assaults by guards that threatened to overwhelm the jail complex on Rikers Island.
