‘She Knows A Lot’: White House In Full Panic Mode As They Try To Bribe Westerhout To Not Spill Secrets
Donald Trump’s former assistant, Madeleine Westerhout, did not leave her job in the best of terms. She was reportedly let go of after she spilt rumours about the president’s children and made fun of his weight.
On Wednesday, CNN reported that the White House is scrambling to get Westerhout a new gig, in the hopes that she won’t write a tell-all book, as many past Trump associates have.
“What it highlights is the president’s concern that all of these jilted aides who leave the white house … you see publishers surrounding them, offering advanced book deals,” CNN reporter Pamela Brown said.
“What we were told in that situation, the president was fuming about this, he didn’t want to take her calls,” she said. “Aides had told him, look, we don’t want her as an enemy,” Brown added.
“She had close proximity to the president, she knows a lot. She could give a tell all book. He ended up taking her call, now we have learned that the White House aides and others who are in Trump’s orbit are trying to give her a soft landing, a cushy job outside of the White House,” Brown added.
“Bottom line is, they’re in damage control. This is often the case when aides leave, you see this pattern of former aides who leave the White House. Whether it be the campaign or elsewhere and you see these Twitter threats as well that we saw from President Trump.”
