Former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman said that staffers who leave the White House are “absolutely” being bought off on “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd Sunday morning.

Manigault Newman’s new book claims that after she was fired from the White House in December 2017, she refused a sham job and $15,000 a month for signing a nondisclosure agreement offered to her by the Trump campaign.

“You believe all these people that … left the West Wing and the campaign are being bought off?” Todd asked Manigault Newman Sunday.

“Absolutely,” she replied.

“Meet the Press” aired text of the alleged nondisclosure agreement that required Manigault Newman to agree to “no disparagement” of “the Campaign, Mr. Trump, Mr. Pence, any Trump or Pence company, any Trump or Pence Family Member, or any Trump or Pence Family Member Company.” (RELATED: Trump Calls Omarosa A ‘Lowlife’ Ahead Of Her Book Release)

Manigault Newman appeared on “Meet the Press” to support her book “Unhinged: An Insider Account of Trump’s White House,” which is set to be released Aug. 14.

Manigault Newman writes that President Donald Trump used the “N-word” and other racial slurs in the book — a charge that those involved deny.
