The White House on Sunday shot back at Omarosa Manigault Newman’s secret recording of her dismissal last year, saying it “proves” her “lack of character and integrity.”
“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 on Sunday evening.
Earlier Sunday Manigault Newman revealed her secret recording of her termination by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
"This is a White House where everybody lies ... you have to have your back," she said defending the recording.
"If I did not have this recording, people would still believe the false, incredible story that I was running around the White House … that I tried to charge the residence of the White House. People would still think that I was trying to set off alarms," she continued. "So yes, I recorded myself and I have no regret about it."

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called her secret recording, which reportedly took place in the Situation Room, “a massive violation of security protocol.”
She taped the chief of staff for the White House in the Situation Room, clearly a violation of every security protocol that she signed when she applied for a security clearance, he said on "Fox News Sunday."
Manigault Newman wrote a memoir thats out this week titled Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House.
Anything to appeal to the trash news.
This is what the skate treatment of Hillary hath wrought...
Geebus what a way to ay back Trump who elevated you from nothing to White House employee.
Very disturbing is her allegation that Gen Kelly is running the country.
Either- she is too dumb to know that he is or he isn’t. Either way that makes her exactly what Sarah called her.
Underhanded activities and betrayal to be expected from someone of her low caliber. Was her job a pity post by PDJT? She needed firing.
Such a range of possible explanations.
First...a woman scorned....but she had to know beforehand that something bad was going to happen, so recorded it.
Second...the Russians could not have a better friend, nor the liberals.
Third...She was always a plant. Her hand was forced by being fired after being found out.
Protecting your interests and spying...the line does become very fine...and porous.
‘Look! A Squirrel!’
When the headline says “Sanders”, it sometimes takes a minute to determine if it is Sarah Huckabee or Bernie that is being referred to.
I am sure that Bernie would have a much different take on Omarosa than Sarah provides us with.
I am satisfied with Sarah’s explanation.
“Very disturbing is her allegation that Gen Kelly is running the country.”
Kelly did what a Chief of Staff is supposed to do. No reason for Trump to get involved with dealing with low life staffers.
It would be impossible for a Low Level Staffer like Omarosa to sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room, the White House Situation Room is one of the most secure rooms on earth.
Therefore, Omarosa would have needed help to record conversations in the most secure room in the world.
Perhaps Obama, before leaving the White House planted Omarosa’a recording device. Or, someone who currently has a very high security clearance planted the device.
However, I think we can all be sure that no foreign state’s intelligence agency could ever access the White House Situation Room in the same manner as a low level White House staffer.
the only negative aspect of this story for Trump is it calls into judgment who he puts his faith in.
She titled it "unhinged?" Nice to see she knows her own shortcomings.
Omarosa has the look of her father.
They are running out of squirrels to use...
“the only negative aspect of this story for Trump is it calls into judgment who he puts his faith in.”
Not at all.
Omarosa was nothing but a low level staffer with no access to the president.
Now, Omarosa’a access to recording devices inside the White House Situation Room only shows that there is or was someone working with Omarosa and that person was high level security clearance.
