Omarosa Manigault Newman, who worked as White House aide, claimed in her new book that she was offered a $15,000-a-month hush money to keep quiet about her time in the administration.
According to an excerpt obtained by The Washington Post on Friday, Manigault Newman claims in her upcoming book, “Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House,” that she turned down the offer.
Omarosa writes that Chief of Staff John Kelly fired her in December, and shortly after she received a call from Trump campaign adviser and presidential daughter-in-law, Lara Trump.
The Post reported that Lara Trump offered her a job and the monthly $15,000 stipend in exchange for her silence about the inner workings of the White House.
“The NDA attached to the email was as harsh and restrictive as any I’d seen in all my years of television,” Manigault Newman writes in the book.
Manigault Newman wrote that the nondisclosure agreement forbids her from speaking about Trump, his family, Vice President Pence or the Pence family.
Manigault Newman was the director of communications for the White House’s Office of Public Liaison.
Omarosa said that the reason for being fired by Kelly was that she was close to getting audio of Trump using a racial slur.
She alleges in her book that Trump repeatedly used a racial slur during tapings of his reality show “The Apprentice,” which Manigault Newman appeared on.
The White House criticized the former aide on Friday, saying her book is “riddled with lies and false accusations.”
“Manigault Newman is only a disgruntled former White House employee who is trying to profit off these false attacks,” Sanders said.
