Was Omarosa Manigault Newman a Spy for Mueller?
By Dan Perkins

I first became aware of Omarosa 15 years ago when she was on the original Donald Trump “Apprentice” TV shows. She seemed then to have an uncanny ability to lose and then get back on the show.
That she was a villain seemed to never go away. The recent article by David Chol of Business Insider points out that she was a Democrat and worked in the Clinton White House. People magazine is quoted in the article saying, “Her former colleagues described her tenure as rocky. These included Cheryl Shavers, the former Under Secretary for Technology at the Commerce Department, who said that “she was asked to leave as quickly as possible, she was so disruptive.” Perhaps, as we will see later, this was the public beginning of her high self-esteem and a need to the focus of attention. One other person, close to the Clinton’s, who was at the White House at the same time as Omarosa was John Brennan. He gave then-President Clinton his daily intelligence briefing.
Omarosa is currently in the spotlight and you can tell she feels self-important with an insatiable need to be in charge. I saw in one interview with difficult questions that she responded that she had only 10 minutes and didn’t the reporter understand she had other commitments. In another interview, you can hear a male voice say, when the questions got too probing, that she had to leave.
I think Brennan saw in her a person who was narcissistic with real deep jealousy. Like any good spook, he made contact not knowing how he could use her but cultivated her through a handler. The more information she gave about her frustration at not being liked and respected, the more the CIA thought it could someday use her. After her run with Trump on TV was over, she blamed him for her failure. When it looked like Donald Trump was going to run for president, I believe the CIA activated her and instructed her as to what she needed to do to collect information from his campaign and later in the White House.
Was Omarosa Manigault Newman a spy for Mueller?
Things started to get interesting on December 9, 2016, when the Washington Post ran a story stating the CIA believed that the Russians were trying to help Trump win the election. The head of the CIA then was John Brennan. It had been just about a month since his old friend Hillary lost. On that same day, President Obama ordered the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and its Director James Clapper to conduct a detailed review of Russian hacks during the 2016 presidential campaign. As was pointed out above, Brennan of the CIA said it was the Russians.
Now let’s look at some facts:
The New York Times says Omarosa has 200 tapes. She admits that she had already met with the Special Counsel before the book was published. She also admits that she would be willing to meet again with the Special Counsel to reveal all 200 tapes. President Trump took office on January 20th, 2017. Omarosa joined the White House staff as of January 3rd. She departed on December 12, 2017. She worked at the White House about 11 months. Over that time she says she made 200 tapes. In order for this to be possible, she would have to be recording on average 4 out of 5 workdays, though she could have more than one conversation in a day. I believe she had to plan the calls in order to get the responses she was looking for from the people she was talking to. What we don’t know is how many tapes she actually made. She says that she has 200, but how many were useless that she threw away? It would appear, in retrospect, that she had little time to fulfill her regular duties.
She could have used her cell phone to tape the interviews, but in many meetings, she would have to check her cell phone at the door. She needed an alternative recording device, and an EV-XO8 Digital Voice Recording Pen or something similar would have fit the bill. This spy pen is available from Amazon. If one goes to Amazon.com and looks up the term Spy pen, there are many to choose from. The device looks like any other pen a person would take into a meeting. Being voice-activated, she could place it on a notepad in front of her and when someone spoke, it would activate and run as long as someone was speaking. When the voices stopped, the pen would stop recording. This would be a much safer alternative to a cell phone in that it could stop on its own when an interview was over. In my latest thriller, “Ted Baker in Terrorist Gold,” I used a similar spy pen.
The other thing that has concerned me about Omarosa is how quickly she turned on the President. Trump is a man that has given her many opportunities during a 15-year period. I think what happened is that she was turned by Brennan to spy on the Trump White House. She was easy to turn because she really didn’t like Trump from the beginning. She only used him for what she wanted: fame. When the deep state needed an insurance policy, she was it. Rush Limbaugh reported that the FBI had several informants in the Trump camp. The Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal raised serious questions about the possibility of the CIA having spies in the Trump Campaign, again while the CIA Director was John Brennan.
The American people are losing interest in the Special Counsel because so far he has produced nothing on President Trump. The Washington Post published a poll showing 43% of the people responding said the investigation should end. I believe that Brennan said to the Democrats we have to do something to change the momentum. The Daily Caller reported Brennan was so angry after the President’s action during the summit meeting with Putin that he said the president had committed a treasonous act.
The panic set in when a Reuters Poll showed the American people did not agree with Brennan about the President’s job performance, as his ratings stayed steady. Brennan then went back to his bag of tricks to see what he had left to try and stem the tide going against him. He recently told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow during an interview that Trump was “drunk on power.” He and other Democrats are trying to bring down Trump and to change the momentum of the mid-term elections.
I believe that Omarosa Manigault Newman is the real insurance policy talked about in the emails. Her tell-all book was completed and just needed a release date, with the mainstream media willing to give her hundreds of hours of interview time to help promote her book. The Democrats thought it was sure to be a best seller.
So here is the plot line: Omarosa was willing to take a chance that Trump would win in the 2016 presidential election and if he did, she thought she would be entitled to a high position in the White House. She was very disappointed that she didn’t get a higher office in the new Trump administration and let it be known that she was unhappy. She tried to inflate her value when she had a run-in with the Congressional Black Caucus. She sent an invitation to a bill signing at the White House and signed the invitation “the Honorable Omarosa Manigault.” From the very beginning, she did not get the attention she thought she deserved and her anger continued to grow. There was a vicissitude on Omarosa’s part, and I believe those Democrats that were trying to take down Trump played to her enormous ego by saying she could become famous when she told her story. She could be the person that might bring down the President. I believe that decision on her part to turn on the President was made when it looked like he might win, late in the campaign.
In order for her to do that, she needed to record as much audio as she could. She had to start the very first day in the White House, if not before, collecting information that would be useful to the Left, and in turn Mueller. The Left tried everything it could against Trump, but nothing had staying power. Things were going badly for the Left, though, and it was time to bring out the insurance policy. I believe the Democrats had her book printed, arranged the media tours, and went off to the races. From her Apprentice days, Omarosa was the villain, and now she is again: she was going to bring down Donald Trump.
The first chink in the armor came just hours before the book was released when she said that Frank Lutz heard the tape of the president using the N-word. Lutz denied it and said the publisher never fact-checked the accuracy of the claim in the book with him. Again, the Left’s insurance policy failed as fake news and her creditability was tarnished. As many times happens with people who get caught lying, she had to make even more outlandish statements that were not verifiable. After all the hype, Amazon reported there were only 51 reviews of the book.
I’m sure we will hear more about the book, all the recordings, and the deal she made with the Special Prosecutor to get her revenge on the President. Much like the ongoing investigations into corruption in the DOJ, FBI, and CIA, time and the persistence of the Congress will find the truth. What’s next for Omarosa? She hopes for an appearance or two before the most significant stage: the Congress. However, if the Democrats do not call for her appearance, then you will know they know that she is a bust. Look for her to demand an appearance before Congress. She may yet hear those words again, “You’re fired!”
