    Omarosa says she secretly taped John Kelly firing her in Situation Room.

    In a remarkable twist, former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman said Sunday she recorded her own firing by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly because she felt the need to protect her reputation.

    NBC’s Meet the Press played a part of the tape, in which a man identified as Mr. Kelly discusses a way for Ms. Manigault-Newman to leave the White House in a “friendly departure” without any “type of difficulty in the future relative to your reputation.”

    this is beyond words. The situation room? This is suppose to be a secure location. Yet, John Kelly allowed a recording devise to be taken in . Not only that, it would appear that he's caught on tape threatening Omarosa with legal action, in order to prevent her from disclosing what she knows about this WH. There's a lot of speculation as to what legal issues he's referring to. But, that doesn't really matter. What ever they are Kelly has no business using them to threaten Omarosa. These are very serious issues. At the very least, this matter should be investigated immediately - someone should be headed to jail.

    Several Washington reporters I follow on twitter are absolutely incredulous that she would do this. And that she somehow could. And that is without taking into account the discussion that was recorded.

    She claims to have other recordings and has given them to unnamed family members to lessen the chance of being Putin'd.

    An administration so incompetent as to be unable to secure their own situation room. What else need be said?

    The recording of her firing that is being played in the "news" media makes Kelly sound pretty good.

    Omarosa...not so much.

    what ever she has is likely to soon become the property of the Secret Service. Like I say. Beyond words that this would happen. And that she would disclose it the way she did. Utterly stupid on so many levels.

    The CBC is reporting that Kelly's part of that conversation was a threat to her to keep quiet.

    She should be arrested. An unconscionable act.

    It's a secure compartmentalized information facility. Her tape may contain information she didn't realize she recorded but will be of great use to our enemies.

    how do you figure Kelly being recorded in a secure area makes him look good? He shouldn't have been using the situation room to terminate WH staff in the first place. And that she was able to record it in a secure location like that makes Kelly look completely incompetent. If he had done something like that in the military he would have been court marshaled.

    Some White House insiders (including from Obamaland) had weighed in to say ordinary business is routinely conducted in there.

    It is, ultimately, a series of conference rooms, useful for an array of private conversations. And it doesn't have round-the-clock security screening people in and out.

    Some areas are supposed to be secure simply because everyone who works there knows they ought to be, just because.

    When that principle is violated in this type of disgusting way, no restraint should be exercised in applying every censure and penalty allowable under the law.

    Kelly can be forgiven for assuming no one would have the gall. Well, maybe not, given the fucking scum Trump has hired.

    As he says on the tape, Omarosa is the one who did court martial worthy stuff.

    But, as long as she gets paid, it's all good.
