Former presidential adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman said Sunday she secretly recorded conversations she had in the White House, including her firing by chief of staff John Kelly in the high-security Situation Room. It was a highly unusual admission, which immediately drew fire from allies of the president.

‘Who in their right mind thinks it’s appropriate to secretly record the White House chief of staff in the Situation Room?’ Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel tweeted.

‘Secretly recording conversations in the Situation Room isn’t just wildly inappropriate, it’s a threat to our national security,’ McDaniel added. ‘If she broke federal law, she should be prosecuted.’

American Enterprise Institute scholar Norman Ornstein had a blunter question: ‘What the hell was OMAROSA doing in the situation room?’

Parts of Manigault Newman’s conversation with Kelly were played on the air during an appearance on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ to promote her new book, ‘Unhinged,’ which will be released Tuesday.

In it, she paints a damning picture of President Donald Trump, including claiming without evidence that tapes exist of him using the N-word as he filmed his ‘The Apprentice’ reality series, on which she was a contestant.

She said in the book that she had not personally heard the recording. But she told Chuck Todd on Sunday that, after the book had closed, she was able to hear a recording of Trump during a trip to Los Angeles.

‘I heard his voice as clear as you and I are sitting here,’ she said on the show.

But the other recording she discussed Sunday could prove equally explosive.

The Situation Room is a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, and staff are not permitted to bring in cell phones or other recording devices.

Small lockers are positioned outside the door so aides can securely leave prohibited devices during critical meetings.
