White House financial disclosures revealed that she "received a wedding package which included a wedding dress, custom veil, and accessories with an estimated value of $25,000 in exchange for appearance on TLC's Say Yes to the Dress".
It's no longer quite so baseless.
But she was sacked by incoming chief of staff Johny Kelly during a closed-doors meeting in December 2017. "Goddamn it. I don't love you leaving at all". "He said it. He's embarrassed." . It should be pointed out that during the time of the call, the participants said they had not actually heard the tape.
FILE PHOTO: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Omarosa Manigault attend a church service, in Detroit, Michigan, U.S., September 3 2016. "#2 burn that ugly yellow dress you wore on the @TODAYshow and choose something more professional looking & maybe this interview will go a little smoother".
PIERSON: No, Ed. That did not happen.
Trump himself came the closest to an explanation on Monday morning, writing on Twitter that he'd heard his aide was performing poorly in her job and antagonizing others, but that he remained enamored by her then-unyielding support. And, in fact, she was the only one that brought this tape up. "I'm telling my story in Unhinged".
Ms. Manigault Newman's recordings have also caused political problems for Mr. Trump, dominating American headlines for days - and she told NBC that there are "absolutely" more audio files.
The recording by the disgruntled 44-year-old, once an ardent Trump ally, represents another stunning breach of presidential trust.
Trump denies that claim and says that she "made it up", and on Tuesday posted another tweet attacking Manigault Newman, who had a high level title and salary at the White House until she was sacked in December.
Except. that turns out to not exactly be true, either.
"I am trying to find at least what context it was used in to help us maybe try to figure out a way to spin it", Pierson is heard saying.
So yet again, we have a situation in which the Trump team's flat denials are apparently roundly disproved.
Ms Manigault-Newman, who is known to the USA public as Omarosa, was renowned for her ruthless tactics and outspoken attitude on the show. 'And why wouldn't we?' She added: "We've all signed them in the West Wing'".
Trump's other aides have to wonder now whether their denials will similarly fall apart.
"Based upon her conflicting accounts and the newfound information.it should be abundantly clear to everyone that not only is her book a complete work of fiction, but that the existence of this elusive "N-word" tape is a figment of her imagination and merely a destructive took of manipulation applied on when it best serves her interests", Patton said in her statement.
