It seems as though the White House is a revolving door of staff at the moment. Whether it's people stepping down or being let go, there are many disgruntled employees who are being let out into the streets.
This wouldn't be so bad if the White House wasn't playing out like an episode of Scandal. In the midst of an investigation, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn stepped down, then months later pleaded guilty to colluding with Russia and lying about it.
"Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology," Flynn said in his resignation letter.
Special counsel Robert Mueller charged Flynn with 'willfully and knowingly' making 'false, fictitious and fraudulent statements' to the FBI regarding conversations with Russia's ambassador.'
Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and his deputy, Rick Gates, were also indicted in this investigation. Both pleaded not guilty to tax fraud and money laundering. As well, Trump's foreign policy advisor, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts.
Even though it feels like we heard about the White House non-stop, there's a lot of things we don't know. However, a former White House employee is ready to tell us all about it.
Former White House Office of Public Liaison’s director of communications, Omarosa Manigault, was recently fired from her position at the White House, and she's ready to let loose.
Manigault maintains that she resigned from Trump's "interesting" administration, saying "[there] were a lot of things that I observed during the last year that I was very unhappy with.”
The former Apprentice star-turned-White-House-official appeared on Good Morning America to make one thing very clear: she has secrets, and she wants to share them.
“But when I have my story to tell as the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people and when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear,” Manigault stated.
“(Chief of Staff) John Kelly and I had a very straightforward discussion about concerns that I had, issues that I raised and, as a result, I resigned,” she added.
After Manigault left the White House, there were rumors that she was physically thrown onto the front lawn upon attempts to re-enter without security clearance. She denies these claims.
“The White House is the most secure place in the world," she said. "It is ridiculous to assert that anyone would be able to violate the security parameters that is outlined in the most secure building in the world.”
