Biggest reveal on the tape is that she was ostensibly a senior WH staffer and her first discussion w the chief of staff was when he fired her https://t.co/ctli9v5ocH

Strange that people aren't focusing on Omarosa's claim that Trump has declined mentally, can't process complex information, and is not part of some of the most important policy decisions. SEEMS LIKE A BIG DEAL.

"'I'm scared shitless of her… She's a physically intimidating presence,' a male former colleague of Omarosa's told me. … senior staff told me last year they felt paralyzed because she was the only top-level official in the WH who was African-American." https://t.co/dX3NuGYjRq

lol, to drown out a book tour they're setting themselves up for another national security investigation that could easily expand to the Rob Porter debacle or dare I say the Mueller probe. https://t.co/fbAiCKM2ks

Was any law broken by Omarosa's apparent recording inside Situation Room? @BradMossEsq: "In and of itself, there is no criminal provision implicated. If there isn't national defense information or classified involved, merely recording…in a SCIF is merely a security violation"

Every room Trump is in is a situation room.

I’m happy to believe Omarosa is untrustworthy but the White House is sure telling on itself here. https://t.co/c4MPghTGeh

The next President is going to do a security review of the White House and the inventory of things that are actually listening devices will be a 2GB document.

Former WH official with no credibility selling a book accuses another former WH official of having no credibility and trying to sell a book. Irony is dead. https://t.co/LXBHzkPbRU

Who hired her after her unhinged ranting on his own tv show? Who was the boss at the White House that tore up the security protocols? Who was the president who compromised the Situation Room to America's intelligence adversaries? "Who," indeed. https://t.co/3ZwTIgQBN9

Trump’s lickspittles keep having to defend him by claiming that ever more former senior administration officials are venal, deranged lying turncoats. At some point it amounts to asserting that he’s just spectacularly, unpredentedly bad at one of a president’s primary duties. https://t.co/zlm1nKjJzC

It is maybe the accidental self-inoculating genius of Donald Trump that in surrounding himself for decades with hard-core thugs, crooks, charlatans, cheats & liars, if and when they finally turn on Trump their lack of credibility continues to serve Trump.
