Trump campaign files complaint against Omarosa, says she breached confidentiality agreement
The Trump campaign has filed a formal complaint against Omarosa Manigault Newman saying she breached a confidentiality agreement signed in 2016, in response to her newly released book and promotional tour.
&ldquoDonald J. Trump for President, Inc. has filed an arbitration against Omarosa Manigault Newman, with the American Arbitration Association in New York City, for breach of her 2016 confidentiality agreement with the Trump Campaign,&rdquo a Trump campaign official told Fox News in a statement on Tuesday.
The move comes as the reality Tv star’s explosive tell-all memoir is released, detailing her time at the White Home and with the 2016 campaign.
In the book and in promotional interviews, she has trashed her former colleagues and President Trump himself.
But the query of no matter whether she violated any confidentiality agreement has hung more than the tour.
In her book, she claimed that she &ldquorefused&rdquo to sign a non-disclosure agreement upon her exit from the Trump White Residence. But on Monday, Trump tweeted that &ldquoWacky Omarosa already has a totally signed Non-Disclosure Agreement!&rdquo
This might have been a reference to one particular signed when joining the campaign.
The Washington Examiner reportedly obtained a sample of the agreement, which would need her to maintain information about the president, his companies and his loved ones confidential, and not &ldquodisparage&rdquo the Trump loved ones &ldquoduring the term of your service and at all instances thereafter.&rdquo
It really is unclear whether or not such an agreement would apply to disclosures about events and conversations right after the campaign, nonetheless.
The American Arbitration Association declined to comment when asked by Fox News about the complaint.
In her book, &ldquoUnhinged: An Insider&rsquos Account of the Trump White House,&rdquo released Tuesday, Manigault Newman aims to settle countless scores, blasting Trump, depicting tensions inside the very first family members and mocking her former campaign and White House colleagues.
Manigault-Newman also accuses Trump in the book of being &ldquoracist&rdquo and a &ldquomisogynist,&rdquo and of getting &ldquomentally and physically impaired.&rdquo
Manigault Newman accuses Trump, whom she calls her &ldquomentor&rdquo throughout the book, of expecting &ldquomoblike&rdquo loyalty, likening him to a &ldquocult leader.&rdquo
&ldquoLoyalty is a loaded topic when it comes to Donald Trump. His moblike loyalty specifications are exacting, imperishable, and sometimes unethical (as in James Comey&rsquos case.),&rdquo she writes. &ldquoBut for the men and women in Trumpworld, loyalty to him is an absolute and unyielding necessity, akin to followers&rsquo devotion to a cult leader.&rdquo
She alleges: &ldquoTrumpworld is a cult of personality focused solely on Donald J. Trump.&rdquo
Trump has blasted Manigault Newman, calling her &ldquowacky&rdquo and a &ldquocrazed, crying lowlife.&rdquo And on Tuesday, Trump praised his chief of staff John Kelly for &ldquofiring that dog!&rdquo
The president also blasted her as &ldquovicious, but not intelligent&rdquo and mentioned &ldquopeople in the White Residence hated her.&rdquo
She has drawn challenging criticism from the White Property following she revealed secretly taped recordings of her conversation with Kelly in the White House Scenario Room during her termination, and mentioned that Kelly was &ldquothreatening&rdquo her.
She also revealed she taped a phone conversation with Trump following she was fired.
Manigault Newman, meanwhile, claimed that she believed her firing was associated to her expertise of a tape produced in the early 2000s, in which Trump supposedly uses &ldquothe N-word.&rdquo
Trump and present and former White Property and campaign officials dispute the claims of such a tape.
