Omarosa: Iím ready to testify at Trump impeachment trial
The Hill ^ | August 24, 2018 | Morgan Gstalter

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman said she is ready “anytime, anyplace” to appear as a witness against President Trump, including a potential Senate impeachment trial.

“I have the truth on my side as well as a hundred emails and documents and other things,” said Manigault Newman in an interview with the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” released Friday, claiming she can testify about her knowledge of Russian ties to Trump’s campaign.

Manigault Newman said that congressional committees have not yet reached out to her seeking testimony regarding information relevant to lawmaker probes into election interference and potential collusion with the Trump campaign.

Earlier this month she said that she met with special counsel Robert Mueller and would be willing to speak with him again.

Calls for Trump’s removal have renewed this week after his former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to charges including a campaign finance violation, implicating the president in the process.

Manigault Newman told the Yahoo News podcast that she still talks to Cohen frequently.

“Michael Cohen and I are still close,” she said on Wednesday, when Cohen appeared in court. “I talked to him today and I wanted him to know and reassure him that his friends are still his friends. We still have his back.”

Trump has been lashing out at Cohen in the days since his former lawyer accepted a plea bargain for eight counts related to bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance law violations.

"If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!" Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

(TWEET-AT-LINK)

Manigault Newman said on the podcast that she was “very upset” about Trump’s tweet.

“Why kick a man while he’s down, you know? This man is facing jail time, he has a family, he has a beautiful wife. His daughter was my intern at the White House,” Manigault Newman said. She previously served as the director of communications for the White House's Office of Public Liaison.

“He would not be paying off porn stars if Donald Trump had not slept with them and had these illicit relationships with them and if Donald Trump had not directed him to pay these women off,” she continued, referring to the payments Cohen made to women alleging affairs with Trump.

Cohen did not refer to Trump by name during his court proceedings but told a judge that he made two six-figure payments relating to women — adult-film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal — at the direction of "a candidate for federal office."

Manigault Newman has been on a media blitz surrounding her new tell-all memoir, “Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House,” which hit No. 1 on The New York Times best seller list this week.

The hypothetical testimony at the hypothetical impeachment.

“He said a terrible racial slur years ago!”

Sum and substance of what Omarosa has got.

Think about it:

If the people going to bat for you are Omarosa and Lanny Davis, does anyone with a brain actually think you’re one of the good guys?

It’s nice that you are ready for your close up, Omarosa, but now, both side know you and neither side believes you to any great degree. You’re good for gossip, shock and giggles. Not a whole lot more.

Go home and count your ill-gotten gains with your two-time bankrupt ‘reverend’ husband in that moldy house.

If the TDS-afflicted needed a reality check on the type of characters they are running with, I’d say this has to be one of the most jarring. No way I’d want to be associated with this nutburger...

Liar! She is using Michael Cohen like she used Trump. Omarosa doesn't have friends. She has people she uses until she decides she wants to dispense of them.

Can you believe this ghetto beyotch seriously considers herself to be a real “minister”? Incredible.

She has been a toxic trouble-making liar for literally DECADES (since she was an intern for the Goron). She would make a laughably bad and unreliable “witness.” Bring her on, LMAO.
