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.
