As a former reality star and member of President Trump’s communications team, Omarosa Manigault-Newman knows a good soundbite.
And on Monday, while visiting "The View," she dropped plenty of gems. Omarosa is still promoting her bombshell book, "Unhinged," which skewers President Trump and his administration.
But she also waded into the current guessing game plaguing Washington: who wrote that anonymous "New York Times" op-ed bashing the President?
She told "The View," “I don’t want to get sued but I suspect it might be [Vice President Pence’s] chief of staff.”
That would be Nick Ayers. Omarosa has previously said she thinks the leak came within Pence’s office - but this appears to be the first time she specified the individual.
On Thursday, a spokesman for pence denied the op-ed was written by Pence or anyone in his office.
Despite this, Joy Behar and Omarosa explained the theoretical strategy behind someone connected to Pence writing the op-ed. “If you don’t like Trump, you want Pence to get the job,” said Behar. “They’re already lining up donors,” Omarosa said of Pence. “They already got a staff that’s helping to build his campaign.”
