As Vanity notes, it is unclear what law Trump believes Omarosa broke but the anger toward the former advisor stems from her betrayal of him. "I'm not going to be bullied by Donald Trump", Newman told the AP in a typically defiant rebuttal.
Matthew Chapman is a video game designer, science fiction author, and political reporter from Austin, TX.
The employee in question is Omarosa Manigault Newman.
Indeed, the source explained that Manigault Newman is prepared to release material from her stockpile if the White House continues its personal relations assault against her.
More US sanctions for Turkey if they don't obey
A Trump tweet last week announcing a doubling of aluminum and steel tariffs for Turkey triggered the rout in the currency markets. Erdogan has remained defiant in the face of the crisis with Washington, saying Turkey could turn to new alternative markets.
That may change. The North Carolina native, an equestrian and triathlon athlete, who has said she and her family sometime "pine for the old days", has had to tap deeper into her competitive side with the emergence of the Manigault Newman affair.
Omarosa Manigault Newman may have as many as 200 audiotapes that she recorded during her brief, tumultuous tenure at the White House. Before joining the administration, Manigault Newman handled African-American outreach for Trump's presidential campaign.
Manigault Newman was director of communications for a White House office that networks with various constituency groups until she was sacked last December by chief of staff John Kelly, citing "significant integrity issues". But Lara Trump, wife of the president's son Eric, has largely managed to buck that trend over the past couple of years.
Lara Trump: "It sounds a little like, obviously, that there are some things you've got in the back pocket to pull out". In her book, she claims the president was caught on tape many times using the N word.
"There's two people that have never called me a liar about the n-word tape". She said this week she chose to release the recordings to prove she is not lying about what happens inside the White House.
