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.

‘Enraged Trump supporters vowed to kill me’: Michael Cohen reveals what happened after he flipped
Donald Trump's former personal attorney says he has received hundreds of death threats after flipping on the president of the United States.
Cohen revealed the threats in the forward to his forthcoming book “Disloyal: A Memoir. The true story of the former personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump.
"The President of the United States wanted me dead," the forward begins. "Or, let me say it the way Donald Trump would: He wouldn’t mind if I was dead. That was how Trump talked. Like a mob boss, using language carefully calibrated to convey his desires and demands, while at the same time employing deliberate indirection to insulate himself and avoid actually ordering a hit on his former personal attorney, confidant, consigliere, and, at least in my heart, adopted son."
Dimming of one of galaxy’s brightest stars ’caused by dust cloud’
The sudden dimming of one of the Milky Way's brightest stars, Betelgeuse, could be due to a dust cloud spewing up from its surface, astronomers said on Thursday.
The mystery has enthralled skywatchers since the star -- part of the Orion constellation -- began to lose luminosity last October, with some experts suggesting it could herald its explosion into a supernova.
But researchers working with the Hubble telescope now have a clearer picture, seeing superhot plasma being unleashed from the star's surface, cooling in the outer layers of the atmosphere and eventually turning to dust.
The foreword for Michael Cohen’s book is out — and it contains allegations of deviant sex acts and a backchannel to Putin
President Donald Trump's former "fixer" Michael Cohen was unfairly targeted by judges attempting to silence his tell-all book slated to be released before the election. However, Cohen prevailed and his new book Disloyal: A Memoir. The true story of the former personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump is scheduled to be released by Oct. 6, according to Amazon, but Cohen had initially said he hoped to have it out by the end of September.
Cohen has already released the foreword of the book on the site for the book, which is getting so much traffic it keeps crashing.
