The Washington Post has reported that President Trump’s aid Omarosa Manigault has found herself in the middle of an arugment with a longtime White House reporter, April Ryan of the American Urban Radio Networks. It is being reported that during the argument, Manigault “physically intimidated her during that argument, while in the West Wing.
Ryan suggested that the intimidation by the former “Apprentice” could have caused the Secret Service to become involved.
Ryan and Manigault used to be friends. Matter of fact, Manigault invited Ryan to be one of her bridesmaids in her upcoming nuptials, but Ryan chose not to participate in Manigault’s joyous occasion.
Ryan told the Post, ““She stood right in my face like she was going to hit me. “I said, ‘You better back up.’ . . . She thought I would be bullied. I won’t be.”
The Post is also reporting that Manigault has made verbal threats and also told Ryan that she was one of the many African American journalists that the White House has records on.
There are also seems to be witnesses to this argument and the report was linked to emails that Manigault sent to Ryan during the election race last year. The email included a link to a story that had a list comprised of journalist names that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was allegedly trying to influence.
In the email, Manigault stated, “This story suggests that as a reporter, you are (or were) a paid Clinton surrogate. I pray this is not true! This could be hurtful to your legacy and the integrity of your work.”
Allegedly, Manigault decided to follow-up with another email that stated, “Protect your legacy!! You have worked too hard to have people question your ethics as a journalist. People talking trash about the reporters on that list having NO integrity. It’s hurtful to hear people say those things about you.”
