Manigault Newman appeared on the program in advance of the Tuesday publication of her new memoir "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House". These claims seem unverifiable for now, but if the recording released today is confirmed to be Gen. John Kelly's voice, the one-time Trump ally may end up in jail for violating the law and placing national security at risk.
Conway was asked on ABC's "This Week" to name the most prominent West Wing staffer to Trump after the departure of Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former Apprentice star whose departure from the White House was announced late past year.
The White House had previously tried to discredit the book, with Sanders calling it "riddled with lies and false accusations". "You have to have your own back, because otherwise you'll look back and see 17 knives in your back", she said of her decision to record conversations in the White House. In the recording, John can be heard telling Omarosa that if she chooses to walk away without any trouble, her reputation won't be damaged.
Manigault said that since this was her first conversation with Kelly, she'd like to ask some questions.

The Situation Room is a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, and staff are not permitted to bring in mobile phones or other recording devices.
The Situation Room is a secure conference room located in the basement of the White House, where people are required to leave their electronic devices outside before entering.
"Who in their right mind thinks it's appropriate to secretly record the White House chief of staff in the Situation Room?" tweeted Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee.
The recording of Kelly in the situation room could prove problematic for Omarosa, as she may breached security protocol, the Post notes.

Union minister Alphons Kannamthanam said he discussed the flood situation in Kerala with Home Minister Rajnath Singh this morning. Two more shutters of the Cheruthoni dam, part of the Idukki reservoir, the biggest arch dam in Asia, were also lifted.
President Trump marked the anniversary of the deadly neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, Virginia with a tweet that did not single out white supremacists as responsible, while his Jewish daughter named the racist ideology and condemned it.
She said she interpreted his comments as a threat.
Other details Manigault Newman passes off as her own original observations, even if they were reported on months or even years ago, like the inability of Trump staffers to turn on the lights during meetings early in the administration. "I'm wondering is, if she was able to do that, were they not able to do the same?" According to the New York Times, Manigault claims in the book that by the time she left the White House in January it "finally sunk in that the person [she'd] thought [she'd] known so well for so long was actually a racist".
