Trump campaign files arbitration complaint against Omarosa

Undaunted by the Donald Trump campaign's legal move to shut her up, Omarosa Manigault Newman took to MSNBC this afternoon to claim he knew about Hillary Clinton's stolen emails prior to their release by Wikipedia during the campaign. Some of the aides on the latest tape also denied the conversation.

Omarosa has also released a number of audio recordings, including one where White House chief of staff John Kelly fires her in the highly secure Situation Room.

The pressure on Ms Manigault Newman increased, as the Trump presidential campaign filed arbitration action against her, alleging a breach of a confidentiality agreement.

Trump has long denied being racist and has dismissed a claim made by Manigault Newman that he used a racial slur on the set of "The Apprentice".

'I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have.

In recent days, Manigault Newman has released audio of her firing by Kelly and of a call from Trump in which he says he did not know about her dismissal. "I am going to expose the corruption that went on in the campaign and in the White House".

Conway said she was disappointed with Manigault Newman, whom she had considered "a colleague and a friend".

Trump officials and a number of outside critics denounced the recordings as a serious breach of ethics and security - and White House aides anxious about what else Manigault Newman may have captured in the West Wing.

Intense fighting in Afghan city Ghazni as Taliban presses

"It's awesome that for two years these folks have been reaching out to me, and I guess I was in denial", Manigault-Newman added.

When asked whether Mueller has something on President Trump, Giuliani said that he's "been through everything" and has found no evidence that the president did anything illegal.

"She knew that Celebrity Big Brother might be make-or-break for her landing a book deal and she maximized that moment", the insider source told The Daily Mail.

President Trump's official spokespeople are usually adept at dodging questions about various crimes, scandals, or bigoted statements by their boss.

As President, however, Trump has stoked racial tensions in the USA, blaming "both sides" after violence sparked previous year by a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In her new book, Unhinged, Omarosa explained: "It's my opinion that Melania was forced to go to the border that day in June, essentially, to mop up her husband's mess". "If he had not said anything that is derogatory or demeaning to African-Americans and women, why would he go to that extent to shut me down". But he clearly thought highly enough of her to give her a top post at his White House following his election. "I think it's really sad what she's doing at this point".

What is contained in the remainder of Manigault Newman's tapes is a mystery, at least for now.

A feud between the two has escalated as Mrs Newman promotes a new book that is very critical of him.
