BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, says he thinks Omarosa Manigault Newman may have broken the law by recording private conversations at the White House. And, he adds, she should have been more loyal to the president because “Donald Trump made her.”
Giuliani told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends”: “What kind of ingratitude is this?”
When asked if she broke the law, Giuliani said: “She’s certainly violating national security regulations, which I think have the force of law.”
Manigault Newman said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that she surreptitiously recorded a number of conversations in the White House for her own protection. Parts of her conversation with Chief of Staff John Kelly were played on the air. Critics denounced the recordings as a serious breach of ethics and security.
On Monday, she released a recorded conversation she says was with President Donald Trump after her firing. In the recording, he appears to express surprise at her departure and says “Nobody even told me about it.”
