The Constitution won’t let Trump silence White House aides

President Donald Trump on Tuesday referred to Omarosa Manigault Newman as "that dog" as the former senior White House adviser continued a publicity tour to promote her new book that depicts Trump as a racist.

On "PBS NewsHour", Manigault Newman said she signed one for the campaign, but declined to sign one when she took a job at the White House.

Manigault Newman claims that she heard an audio recording of Trump repeatedly using the "N-word", and on Tuesday, CBS News ran a 2016 conversation she had with campaign officials discussing the potential fallout of the release of such a tape. "The messages behind her style choices aren't always clear, but they are never accidental".

When she was sacked from the White House in December 2017, Mr Trump tweeted: "Thank you Omarosa for your service!" As a NY business executive, he relied for decades upon NDAs to ensure that those closest to him never uttered a word about what they saw or were told about him.

Omarosa Manigault Newman has a story to tell.

Omarosa Manigault Newman's former colleagues say they are shocked that she secretly recorded private conversations with President Donald Trump and his chief of staff.

This was not the first time Souza has trolled President Trump on social media.

LTo the many dozens of #journalists who called me, questioning @OMAROSA claim in her new book that @POTUS @realDonaldTrump took a note from me, put it in his mouth and ate it.I saw NO such thing and am shocked anyone would take this seriously.

After leaving the White House, Manigault Newman was "downhearted" because Trump "ceased all correspondences with her", an unnamed "insider" source told The Daily Mail.

Manigault-Newman speculates that Trump instructed Kelly to fire her to "keep his hands clean", but also questions "Is General Kelly running this country, or is the president running this country?" "And you know what?"

During an appearance Monday night on Fox News, Pierson denied having had a conversation about alleged Trump tape. "These allegations add to the chaotic and wacky picture of the White House in some ways".

". When people are chosen by a man to go into government at high levels and then they leave government and they write a book about a man and say a lot of things that were really guarded and personal, I don't like that", Trump said.

Trump first met Manigault-Newman as a contestant on the show, before the president invited her to work at the White House. Neither the White House nor campaign immediately replied to TPM's requests for comment. After growing up in a housing project in Youngstown, Ohio, and losing her father at age 7 - he was murdered - Manigault Newman emerged from a turbulent youth to earn a degree in broadcast journalism at Central State University and land a job in the office of then vice president Al Gore at age 23.

"When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems", Trump said in a tweet.

Officials said they believed that Ms. Manigault Newman might have many dozens of additional audio recordings, and they were preparing for her to release them slowly, to maximize attention on her book.

Manigault-Newman did note that her source for the tape was "terrified" to come forward, and teased they could be holding onto to it for "politically motivated" reasons ahead of the midterm elections.

What is contained in the remainder of Manigault Newman's tapes is a mystery, at least for now.
