Kellyanne Conway poured gasoline on the fire on Sunday afternoon when she made the television rounds across the country, desperately trying to run damage control on Omarosa Manigault-Newman‘s damning secret tapes and tell-all book.
But in trying to defend Donald Trump‘s presidency, the White House counselor inadvertently confirmed one of Omarosa’s very interesting accusations: that the Trump White House DOES engage in confidentiality agreements.
“We have confidentiality agreements in the West Wing, absolutely we do. And why wouldn’t we?”
Anchor Jon Karl shot back with the correct answer (below), after which Conway attempted to change the subject:
“You’re a public employee.”
Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!!
The issue of Conway admitting to confidentiality agreements begs the question, then: were Omarosa, Sean Spicer, and others paid campaign or government money as part of their confidentiality agreements to keep quiet?
Omarosa has accused Spicer of taking kickback-money (she accused him again on live TV during her media rounds today), and there are further allegations that Trump’s bodyguard Keith Schiller and others are also taking kickback money.
Hmmm… this could be huge!!
So much for draining the swamp, right Donald?!
