A former White House official says she was offered $15,000 a month in exchange for silence after stopping to work for US President Donald Trump.
“Hush money” claims in a book by Omarosa Onee Manigault-Newman were met by counselor to the president, Kellyanne Conway, on Sunday, asserting that nondisclosure agreements are quite common.
Omarosa, who served as communications director for the White House Office of Public Liaison, also released a recording of her firing by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
In an interview with NBC, she admitted that she had been “used” by Trump like a “frog in hot water.”
Interesting exchange to watch. Jon Karl asks…
