ABC News reports:
Omarosa Manigault Newman’s former White House colleagues are looking into legal options to stop her from releasing more tapes and to punish her for secretly recording her conversation with Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, White House officials tell ABC News.
“The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room, shows a blatant disregard for our national security –- and then to brag about it on national television further proves the lack of character and integrity of this disgruntled former White House employee,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
Many within the White House fear Manigault Newman will release their private conversations. “She’s on a different level,” a senior White House official said. “She terrified me.” Manigault Newman takes both current and former White House officials to task in her new book, “Unhinged.” Now there are concerns that her allegations will have more validity backed up by tapes.
