Omarosa Manigault Newman says she refused hush money

Source: Washington Post

Omarosa Manigault Newman was offered a $15,000-a-month contract from President Trump’s campaign to stay silent after being fired from her job as a White House aide by Chief of Staff John F. Kelly last December, according to a forthcoming book by Manigault Newman and people familiar with the proposal.

But she refused, according to the incendiary new book, “Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House,” which also depicts Trump as unqualified, narcissistic and racist. Excerpts of the book were obtained by The Washington Post.

After she was fired, Manigault Newman wrote, she received a call from Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law, offering her a job and the monthly contract in exchange for her silence.

The proposed nondisclosure agreement allegedly said Manigault Newman could not make any comments about President Trump or his family; Vice President Pence or his family; or any comments that could damage the president. It said she would do “diversity outreach,” among other things, for the campaign, according to her account.

2. I KNEW, when reading this, that some other trumper was getting a monthly stipend - yeah,

KEITH SCHILLER, ex-bodyguard


Huh. 15k per month is what Trump’s former bodyguard
Keith Schiller has been getting from the RNC.





A tweeter said boy, I’d sure like to see the RNC financials

ME TOO

Hell, Michael Cohen just stepped down as one of its treasurers last month
What an eyeful those financial disclosures would be!!!

5. Evidently, she recorded everything.

Everyone in that administration is planning on writing a book, and publishers want insurance that the authors have real dirt.

7. If they thought that she would never collect information

in whatever avenue was available they are a bunch of fools.

I am guessing that she has enough evidence to provide some degree of proof of her claims. I am not saying 100% but some adequate % level.

15. WaPo also cites "people familiar with the proposal"...

..which sounds like additional confirmation.

17. Good point. Or a "People Rag" tag that could be used to filter.

Maybe these tags are already there. After 4(?) years I still don't know how to ring/toot all the bells and whistles.

10. Even if she was offered

a $15,000 a month contract, she probably knew Trump's reputation for paying people. Anyone who trusts Trump, deserves what they get (or don't get).

11. 15K per month equals 180K per year, better than Stormy

must be something important she was asked to hide

16. My guess is they weren't going to pay her a whole year's salary

The idea was to keep her from writing a book and publishing before the election. And she refused THAT so I give her credit for not taking the easy money.

Make no mistake, Omarosa had many chances to escape Trump's coven of witches but she never quit - they kicked her out. I'm sure this book is mostly for revenge, but also for the money. She'll try to parlay it into a talk show gig, but she's not likable enough to get her own show.

13. Is this even legal?

I didn't think it was possible to have non-disclosure agreements in government jobs. All of Trump's previous NDA's were either in private business matters or with his many and varied mistresses. If this isn't illegal, then it should be! Presidents shouldn't be allowed to pay off people for their silence.

18. She is just another two-faced opportunist. While I have no doubt that she was offerred hush money,

the fact that she refused it does NOT make her an honorable person in light of her actions supporting the racist, bigot, asshole in 2016

19. She shoulda taken the $15G/month. Her book will end up next to Hannity's at clearance...

who really cares? Her tapes were just her voice and the cheetolini 'n' word tapes are almost mythical. No news there.
