WH looking at 'legal options' against Omarosa

White House is examining possible legal action against former employee Omarosa Manigault-Newman over her recording she made while serving as the Communications Director, press secretary Sarah Sanders said. Manigault-Newman recorded her conversation with Chief of Staff John Kelly when he fired her last December and played the audio during her appearance on television.

"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," spokeswoman Sanders said.

Manigault-Newman's book about her time at the White House, titled "Unhinged," is coming out on Tuesday. On Saturday, President Donald Trump briefly commented on the reports about his former aide's secret recordings by calling Omarosa a "lowlife."
