Omarosa Hints On Having Handed Over Incriminating Evidence To Mueller: ‘Trump Challenges Me, I Bring The Receipts’
Appearing on MSNBC on Thursday, former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman suggested that she may have already turned in incriminating evidence on Donald Trump to special counsel Robert Mueller.
Speaking to host Craig Melvin, Manigault-Newman claimed that Trump knew about Russia’s role in stealing emails from the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee before they were dumped online by WikiLeaks.
“That’s the most explosive allegation that you’ve made, and it’s not even in the book,” Melvin noted.
Manigault-Newman went on to explain why she left that information out of the book by claiming that she was interviewed by Mueller and that the omitted allegation was related to the Mueller investigation.
“There are some things that are involved in this investigation, the Mueller investigation, that I was very careful not to put in the book,” she said.
Melvin then asked the former White House aide for evidence on her claims. Manigault-Newman said she could not provide any evidence at the moment but hinted that she may have handed over that evidence to the special counsel.
“I can’t even talk about the things that I talked with them,” Manigault-Newman said. “I can’t talk about the things I’ve submitted to them, but I want you to know that I fully continue to cooperate with this investigation.”
She then noted that everything that she has put out she has been able to prove.
“I have been able to verify every single thing that I put in the book,” Manigault said. “I’ve verified everything I’ve stated, and every single time the Trump people challenge me, I bring the receipts.”
Manigault-Newman also talked about Trump’s decision to take legal action against her and claimed that she’s ready to face him.
“I’m now faced with this legal action from the president, an attempt to silence me,” she said. “You’d have to ask the question, what is he afraid of? Why is he being so aggressive to shut me down? And why is he trying to stop the publishing of the book? What does Donald Trump have to hide?”
