Former Trump adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman has created a firestorm of criticism after revealing “secret” tapes from security meetings at the White House.
Among those calling her out was Sarah Sanders, who stated: “The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room shows a blatant disregard for our national security — and then to brag about it on national television further proves the lack of character and integrity of this disgruntled former White House employee.”
For years, we have been seeing leaks come out of the White House.
These leaks have created some significant concerns about the overall security measures in place there.
Now, Omarosa has come forward with secretly taped recordings of White House meetings.
It is a probably a safe assumption that most Americans believed there were security measures in place that would prevent anyone from being able to secretly record meetings.
When Omarosa came forward to reveal the audio to promote her new book, more than a few people were shocked at what she had done.
Secretly recording conversations in the Situation Room isn’t just wildly inappropriate, it’s a threat to our national security. If she broke federal law, she should be prosecuted.

The outrage over the security violation wasn’t just coming from Republicans, either.
Ned Price, who served under President Barack Obama, was just as upset over what Omarosa had done.
Price said that he had “never heard of a more serious breach of protocol. Not only is it not typical, something like this is unprecedented.”
Anything to Sell Books
Omarosa was once considered a major Trump ally.
Now, though, she is out for blood.
She has characterized Trump as both a “con” and a “racist” while promoting her new book.
Manigault said: “I was complicit with this White House in deceiving this nation. I had a blind spot where it came to Donald Trump.”
The claims she is making are very serious, but most are now dismissing them as a disgruntled former staffer.
The accusations are so severe, one would have to think there is no way they could have been kept out of the press during the election, especially considering how badly Dems were trying to expose Trump, always to no avail.
