Stung by the flurry of secretly taped White House conversations released by Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the Trump administration may try to stop more from leaking out by declaring them “classified,” ABC Chief Legal Analyst Dan Abrams says.

“They can say that’s classified information and as a result that’s a violation of the law.”
Manigault-Newman, a former star of “The Apprentice” who President Donald Trump tapped as one of his senior advisers, has been releasing snippets of audio she recorded inside the White House.
