BREAKING: Omarosa releases secret tape of Lara Trump offering her campaign job after firing (Video)
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NBCNews.com:
Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former reality TV star who became a top White House aide to President Donald Trump, on Thursday released exclusively to MSNBC a secret tape of campaign official Lara Trump offering her a $15,000-a-month job after she was fired from the administration.
The tape — which, according to Manigault Newman was made on Dec. 16, 2017, just days after she had left the White House — appears to corroborate claims she made in her new book about receiving an offer from the president’s re-election campaign. Manigault Newman wrote in her book that the job offer came with the condition of signing a nondisclosure agreement; she said she did not accept it.
On the new tape, Lara Trump says: “It sounds a little like, obviously, that there are some things you’ve got in the back pocket to pull out. Clearly, if you come on board the campaign, like, we can’t have, we got to,” she continues, before Manigault Newman interjects, “Oh, God no.”
The article goes on to state the following:
In an interview with MSNBC’s Craig Melvin after the excerpts were aired, Manigault Newman said the recording was proof of “an attempt” by the Trump team “to buy my silence, to censor me, and to pay me off.”
Asked if she saw it as “hush money,” Manigault Newman responded, “Absolutely.”
Manigault Newman shared four excerpts from the recording of the longer conversation for broadcast; NBC News has heard the full tape of the conversation and the clips are in context.
In another excerpt of the recording, Lara Trump, who is married to Donald Trump’s son Eric, is heard explaining to Manigault Newman that “the only thing that we have to consider, where we’re talking salary as far as the campaign is concerned, is that, as you know, everything is public.”
“And that all the money that we raise and that pays salaries is directly from donors, small-dollar donors for the most part. So, I know you, you were making 179 at the White House. And I think we can work something out where we keep you right along those lines,” Trump continues. “Specifically, let me see, I haven’t even added up the numbers. But we were talking about, like, 15K a month. Let me see what that adds up to. Times 12. Yeah.”
“So that’s $180,000. Does that sound like a fair deal for you?” Trump is heard saying.
