The New York Times reported on Thursday that Omarosa Manigault Newman may have as many as 200 recordings that she put secretly together during her time working for the Trump White House and campaign.

“Mr. Trump’s aides have been concerned that they will make appearances on other tapes, of which Ms. Manigault Newman is believed to have as many as 200,” Maggie Haberman and Kenneth Vogel wrote in a summary of Manigault Newman’s latest reveal that the president’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, offered her a paid gig after she was fired in exchange for her silence.

Manigault Newman has dominated the news cycle all week and has only released four tapes to date. The former reality show star has railed against Trump while also promoting her new book, “Unhinged,” which chronicled her time in the White House. If the figure from Haberman and Vogel is even 10 percent accurate, it suggests that the world will be contending with Manigault Newman for a long time.

In addition to the Lara Trump tape from yesterday, Manigault Newman’s audio has also documented her firing from inside the highly secure White House Situation Room and renewed speculation about the possible existence of Trump saying the N-word in footage from long ago.

Omarosa’s book sales have also spiked as a result of the maelstrom. After soft pre-order numbers on Amazon, the tell-all spiked and now sits at number two on the books charts.
