Omarosa Manigualt Newman

Omarosa Manigault-Newman may have violated espionage laws by secretly recording conversations and meetings with the president of the United States in the White House.

Omarosa, 44, worked as an assistant to President Donald Trump before she was fired and "forcibly removed" from the White House grounds in February.

Multiple sources tell The Daily Beast that Omarosa secretly recorded conversations with President Trump on her cell phone inside the White House.

According to the report published by The Beast on Wednesday, Omarosa used the recordings to pitch her tell-all book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House, which is set for release on August 14.

A source who has heard the tapes tell The Daily Beast the recordings consist of "everyday chatter" between Omarosa and the president.

The tapes will likely never be released since Omarosa would be subject to arrest and imprisonment for violating a laundry list of federal laws, including the Espionage Act.

Omarosa met Trump when she was a contestant on the billionaire mogul's hit reality TV show The Apprentice.

She was offered a White House position as assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison in January 2017 after she helped then-candidate Trump connect with prominent clergy within the Black community during his 2016 campaign.

Omarosa was fired by chief of staff John Kelly for abusing the White House car service, according to

The 5'-10" former reality star also ran afoul of West Wing staff in April when she brought her 39-person wedding party to the White House for a photo shoot without permission.

After she was fired, Omarosa said she would "never vote for Trump again in a million years," and she expressed concern about Vice President Mike Pence, saying, "he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”

    I hope her book goes triple styrofoam . This sorry excuse of a woman shouldn’t be given another minute of the attention she so desperately crave.

  • Shawty

    I wish she would just go sit down somewhere. We not buying your bogus book lady. Trump is all she has to talk about. He was the BEST thing since sliced bread when she was working for him. Now she thinks he's some crap. She has nothing interesting about herself to talk about that the people want to hear, so she uses him...smh!

    Isn't Omarosa a pastor's wife now? I think she should just focus on running the church with her husband, and leave the rest of us alone.


    LOL me either.

  • the watcher

    well said my sister! she want to try to run back to the black community now after she said we will have to bow down to her massa trump. GTFOH (O MAN ROSA)!

  • Fire & Ice

    Certain things surrounding his death seemed weird. I think I read somewhere, that she was the sole beneficiary of his estate?

  • Carla
  • Carrington

    No lie she can put out will make me buy that book. Her audience is limited as hell and she, and her publisher, know it. First off, you're a black woman... and any of those MAGA minions who love Trump only clap for the blacks who coon for coupons. So, there's that. Secondly, republicans aren't interested in reading ANYTHING negative about their dear disciple Donald. White folk don't like you because you embody every stereotype they abhor about black women.
    Democrats as a whole don't care about anything you have to say just because you're a sellout democrat who would do anything for fame and power. Black folk haven't liked you since you were on The Apprentice because you embody every negative stereotype about black women known to man... WHO is her target pop? Black journalist don't like you because you showed your ass and disrespected them. Black women don't like you because your ignorance significantly contributes to harsh, and unfair judgments people make about them...
    WHO is buying this book?

  • Fire & Ice

    She betta leave dem white folks alone.... before she ends up being a special on unsolved mysteries ?

  • Roderick2011

    Yes she is a first lady of a church near Jacksonville Florida.
    I found it strange that he allowed her to stay in DC and work for Trump when most first ladies are at church every Sunday supporting their husbands and sometimes they have a designated Sunday to minister, but I guess Omarosa is different.

  • Roderick2011

    She killed him when she turned him into a vegan.

  • Roderick2011


    Before she released those tapes I thought to myself that she better have something good she could give Mueller so he could expedite her entry into the Witness Protection program because Trump's people are going to come at her hard with death threats and chit.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I wish this attention seeker would go away.

  • Rainbowbelow

    I don't think trump really wanted her around in the first place but since she worked in the white house during the Clinton administration maybe he thought she knew some good gossip that he could use against Hillary. And when she didn't, he was probably looking for any excuse reason to make her leave.

  • Bdot

    I wonder if she'll dedicate a chapter in her book to explain all those crocodile tears she "cried" when her fiance died..

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I hate Omarosa...You can tell she danced with the Devil in a pale moonlight but Im here for this....

  • hi-liter

    only clap for the blacks who coon for coupons

  • Peppermint Patty

    As much as everyone hates on this woman, I've always found her cruella like tendencies to be entertaining and crafty...strategic I dont want her in my sister circle...but at same time I dont knock her hustle cuz she quippy with the comebacks and fearless in the boardroom...she capitalized off the wave that was trump-she knew he was a horse's ass-but most politicians are....her fake phony ways have just made her millions, many are just fake and broke! greedy men/people do these things in business everyday and dont get demonized like ya thang crooked first lady-ill be reading book reviews online tho....

  • Waya Hedia

    Her next book may be written from the inside of a cell.

  • Fire & Ice

    They surely will come after her. she needs to tread lightly. This is the type of sh*t that will earn her a pair of cement shoes, and a trip to the bottom of the ocean ???.

  • Coffee1st

    Isn’t Omarosa a pastor’s wife now?
    Say it isn’t so....

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • hi-liter

    Did anyone know Michael Clark Duncan's political affiliation when he was alive? I just wonder if he were alive, would she have still taken that job with the Dummy Admin.

    i don't care for the broad but i hope she don't wind up dead in the anacostia or whatever.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Once she was escorted off I knew she'd sing like a bird. She like him can't be trusted. I still don't see what Michael saw in her.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Why would she? She didn’t record the Clintons.

  • Bashi22

    When Angel Rye laugh and clown her on CNN i feel embarrassed for her an Angela Rye on white people net-work. I don't see these black people go hard on the Kanye West and Black pastor with Trump but Omarosa and Chrisette Michele they crucify them

  • KcoolMuziq

    Michael Clark Duncan(R.I.P.)(Whom I worked with on "Planet Of The Apes" movie & was Will Smith bodyguard) was a nice dude.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    She’s proved to be the idiot she truly is.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Even though I dont like this bendwench, the fact that SHE is the one being accused of Espionage is f*cking hilarious. Also if people think this is really real, then they are slow as well. This is the President of the US, peole have been killed for waaayyyyyyyy less.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I was just thinking the same thing. He seemed like such a nice person..definitely too good for this heffa!

  • Waya Hedia

    She looks like a rough old drag queen in that picture.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Yes she seemed more serene then...

  • free


  • shelly

    She is lying to build up hype for her book. Please stop giving that coon publicity.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Omarosa needs to keep the same energy she had when she was saying folks needed to bow down to Trump. ?? Don't try to backpedal and p pop now that you're unemployed.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I really don't think anybidy cares...well at least I don't ....the Feds might be interested!

  • Logan Roberts

    Omarosa gonna be sleeping with the fish keep playing girl ???

  • Elevated Soul

    I pity Omarosa.......I guess now she think because she has turned against President Trump,that Democrats will like her. Omarosa had been around President Trump for years.She campaigned for him and he even created a position for her,so to "logical people she is suspect".She is also suspect to illogical Democrats but they will use her up politically.

    The Democrats will only use her for information and political commercials.It is a shame to have so many "cut throats around you"............My Aunt has a ringtone on her phone called "Smiling Faces" and that is what Omarosa has proven herself to be.

    She is going to spin this as if she's a victim of something,to try and save the church her hubby is over....The fact that she taped conversations also tell me she was probably one of the leakers and was always actually loyal to the Democratic Party,especially since she worked for Bill Clinton,I do believe.

  • Elevated Soul


    Many Democrats are ignorant on many things and that also include all of the "bodies" that The Clinton's have on them.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Just this rumor is enough to get a very serious investigation by the secret service. If this is true her ass will be on jail

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

  • hottlanta

    But, but you loved her when she was c00ning for Massa Trump.

  • hottlanta

    I dont need her tape l just heard nunes dinner party tapes l am good.

  • lovelygamour

    her and trump have an understanding. they speak the same languge. she fell on her sword for him and now he is doing the same for her. if she has talks of their everyday chatter then he knew. he didn't fire her Kelly did. if omarosa wanted to still be there she would. she got to greedy with access. again trump didn't bash her about the wedding photos. he doesn't care and if he was in town would've been in a few pics. he likes wedding. I have never been a fan of his. when omarosa went on big brother she didn't bash trump she made the case to keep trump over Kelly. they will work together again unless he is in jail or the mental decline is true and not a way to get out of jail.

  • lovelygamour

    she got a few things done and talked about. but she really didn't try. instead of clashing with Kelly she should've been helping in little ways. she was greedy just like the rest. however she went too hard and got put out. lol.

  • dontgetblocked

    You can take the nygga out da hood...

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    What people don't understand about Omarosa, is she is all about what benefits HER. Just like Trump. That's what they really have in common. She used Trump to get more fame and money, and he tried to use her, to gain more black support. Once his team realized, a lot of blacks werent willing to follow her, in a way that would benefit Trump, they got her áss up outta there. They didn't want her black tail in there to begin with, and since Trump was preoccupied with other battles (Russia and the FBI), plucking her out of the bunch, without needing Trumps consent, was easy. Trump only want pawns and "yes" people around him and they have to be willing to get the job done, no matter how unethical or illegal the paths are. It's politics and you don't make it to Capitol Hill or the White House, without getting your hands dirty.

  • Jethro

    Who knows why she was fired. Who even cares at this point? I like Katrina P better for communication purposes. What did she do exactly?
