Omarosa Manigault-Newman made a few (more) stunning claims Tuesday in her continued President Trump-bashing media blitz. Speaking with MSNBC's Katy Tur, the former White House aide said she has spoken to special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation. She offered him the tapes she secretly recorded while working in the White House. She could not disclose much more than that, claiming her "hands were tied."
.@OMAROSA on Trump taking legal action to silence her: "What is he trying to hide or afraid of? If he has not said anything that's derogatory or demeaning to African Americans, why would he go to the extent to shut me down?"— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 14, 2018

Manigault-Newman added that if Mueller calls her again she'll provide him "anything he needs" in his investigation.
also told Tur that the Trump campaign insisted everyone mention the emails at every opportunity in the lead up to the election. More stunning yet, the former "Apprentice" star claimed that Trump knew about the Hillary Clinton emails before they were leaked by WikiLeaks. He "absolutely" knew.
"You're saying Donald Trump had a back channel?" Tur suggested.
Manigault-Newman chuckled in response, "I didn't say that, you did."
She did say, however, that "she is going to expose the corruption" that went on in both the campaign and the White House.
Since her departure, Manigault-Newman has trashed the Trump administration's fitness and character. John Kelly she painted as a bully, Hope Hicks as a home wrecker.
As for Trump, whom she's known for 15 years, she once heralded him a civil rights champion, but now claims he is a misogynist and a racist. He responded in kind.
When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2018
The administration is also considering bringing her to court for secretly recording conversations and breaking the non-disclosure agreement.
