Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman used her personal phone to record the conversations she’s released since leaving, Axios reports.
According to an unnamed source, Manigault Newman recorded almost every conversation, including one with “all the trumps,” that she had while working in the White House. The source said that her phone was almost always on record mode, and that she “wouldn’t write me on email or text me — many [conversations] happened on Facebook Messenger (she didn’t want what happened to Hillary Clinton and her emails to happen to her).”
Manigault Newman would reportedly carry a work phone along with a personal phone, which she would use to record calls made to the work phone and player over the speaker.
“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 said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” in August. “So yes, I recorded myself and I have no regret about it.”
