There must be something about President Trump that makes his employees want to remember every word he says.
Omarosa Manigault Newman, the Apprentice star turned ex-White House aide, reportedly has several secret recordings of private conversations between her and the president, multiple sources tell The Daily Beast. And they apparently came in handy as she tried to find a publisher for her upcoming book.
In January, an unnamed source told the New York Daily News that Manigault Newman had recordings of "everyone" in the Trump White House. The Omarosa-Trump tapes discussed by The Daily Beast are apparently full of unremarkable, everyday conversations. Idle chatter may not be useful to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, which interviewed Manigault Newman last month, but it's apparently come in handy as Manigault Newman writes her tell-all memoir Unhinged about her time in the White House. She apparently whipped out the recordings while trying to find a publisher for her book, per The Daily Beast.
Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen was also known for taping his discussions with the president, CNN host Chris Cuomo, and presumably whoever stepped in his office. Before Cohen turns those tapes into his own revelatory book, may we recommend just compiling them into a podcast instead? Kathryn Krawczyk
