Omarosa Manigault-Newman may have more ammunition to use against President Trump.
The former White House aide reportedly recorded conversations with Trump while working in the West Wing, The Daily Beast reported Wednesday.
Omarosa, who served as communications director for the White House Office of Public Liaison, made the recordings on her smart phone, multiple sources told the publication.
She is said to be using the interactions to generate interest in her upcoming book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
A source, who claimed to have heard at least one recording, described it as “everyday chatter.”
Omarosa’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, would not confirm or deny the existence of the taped conversations.
“Without commenting on the specific contents of Unhinged,” a spokesperson told the Daily Beast, “we are confident that Omarosa Manigault Newman can substantiate her highly-anticipated account of life inside the Trump White House.”
The publisher has previously described the book – set for release later this month – as “a stunning tell-all and takedown from a strong, intelligent woman who took every name and number.”
In an excerpt leaked last week, Omarosa claimed Trump showed signs of “mental decline that could not be denied.”
The former reality star met the then-business mogul while serving as a contestant on the first season of The Apprentice in 2004. She was fired from the White House in December amid reports of tension with Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Omarosa isn’t the only insider to record Trump.
The president’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, also taped their conversations. His recordings were seized by the FBI in an April raid.
