Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman is claiming that former White House communications director Hope Hicks “prepped” President Trump to lie to NBC during and interview.
MSNBC’s co-host Velshi asked, “I want to talk about the Lester Holt interview. You said that the team prepared him well, then he went into the interview and he said what a lot of people believed to be the truth, that he fired Jim Comey over Russia. So was he being prepped to lie?”
Manigault Newman replied, “He was being prepped by Hope Hicks and the comms team to say that the DOJ had come up with this memo so that they could justify the firing of Comey.”
“I was really, really surprised that he would implicate himself. That’s when you know someone is mentally challenged when they would even jeopardize their own livelihood by saying things that are just insane at times.”’
