Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman leaked a new secret recording on “The View” of President Donald Trump crashing a White House meeting in October 2017 to rant about Hillary Clinton and the Russia investigation:
I think Hillary is getting killed right now with Russia. The real Russia story is Hillary and collusion.
Trump claimed that then-staffer Hope Hicks told him Clinton paid $9 million for the opposition research, but Sarah Huckabee Sanders said it was closer to $6 million, which fueled Trump’s rant:
Did you see? Nobody knows who spent it. No, I heard it was 9. I heard it was 5.7 but now they say it was 9.
Trump claimed the research was paid through a law firm so it could not be traced, which he insisted was an illegal campaign contribution:
It’s definitely illegal, and it’s illegal from a campaign standpoint, from a campaign financing standpoint.
Manigault recalled details about the meeting that Trump crashed:
This was a meeting with the entire communications staff and the press shop, meeting to talk about tax reform or his trip to North Korea.
He crashed the meeting, he came into the meeting, he sat down and he starts rambling from topic to topic, none of it makes sense.
