President Donald Trump's campaign filed a lawsuit Tuesday against former Apprentice star turned White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, alleging she violated a nondisclosure agreement she signed during the 2016 campaign, the Washington Examiner reported.

Manigault Newman - who has been promoting her new memoir, "Unhinged", in advance of its release Tuesday - said during an interview on MSNBC's "Velshi & Ruhle" that White House officials "were talking about early on doing something to help combat the violence in Chicago that we have seen rise to levels that are just unacceptable".

According to a sample of the agreement provided to Secrets, she was required to keep proprietary information about the president, his companies or his family confidential and to never "disparage" the Trump family "during the term of your service and at all times thereafter."...

"The person with the tape used to be a part of the production staff for 'The Apprentice, '" she said, explaining the person actually thought it was his responsibility to document Trump to expose his racist behavior.

Trump insisted, "I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have".

Manigault Newman answered, "Well, absolutely".

As Yahoo! pointed out, receiving money for an appearance could have posed serious ethical concerns for the former White House official, however, Omarosa filmed her segment of Say Yes before Trump's January 2017 inauguration.

"It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media would now give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the president during her time in the administration". Before becoming president, Trump himself had a reputation for quietly recording conversations during his business dealings in NY. I've got all the time you need.

Manigault Newman accuses Trump, whom she calls her "mentor" throughout the book, of expecting "moblike" loyalty, likening him to a "cult leader".

Yet another close adviser to President Trump has betrayed him.

"I loved him [talking to her] on the phone".

She was asked to sign another NDA after leaving the White House while discussing a while discussing a $15,000-per-month job with the Trump campaign.

In audio of Omarosa's firing, Kelly wishes her a "friendly departure", adding that he hoped "you can go on without any difficulty in the future relative to your reputation".

"We didn't know", Colbert said. Trump said David Gregory was "fired like a dog" from his job as moderator of Meet the Press on NBC.

Jiang also noted that Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson had also denied the conversation took place in an interview with Ed Henry on Fox News on Monday night. "These allegations add to the chaotic and wacky picture of the White House in some ways". ". When people are chosen by a man to go into government at high levels, and then they leave government and they write a book about a man and say a lot of things that were really guarded and personal, I don't like that". Mr. Trump came to office vowing to hire "only the best people" - but has struggled to put a lid on leaks, incompetence, backbiting and scandal inside his White House.

Omarosa Manigault Newman likes to be noticed and that she did during an August 13 appearance on The Today Show, albeit for all the wrong reasons.

The White House says Omarosa's book is riddled with lies and false accusations. The problem? Many senior advisors were not aware of the photoshoot, and they ultimately banned her from sharing any of the images.

"So now we have one liar [Omarosa] who admits she lied in the past claiming she's telling the truth now about the liar [Trump] she worked for, and a third liar, [Cohen] who's under investigation for lying, who taped the first liar [Trump] to prove he wasn't lying, said the second liar [Omarosa] was lying about the first liar [Trump]", Meyers said.
