Omarosa: Trump Knew About WikiLeaks Emails Before They Came Out


Omarosa told MSNBC's Katy Tur on Tuesday afternoon that then-candidate Donald Trump knew about the hacked Clinton emails that WikiLeaks released before they were dropped.

KATY TUR: You were instructed, according to your book, to bring up the e-mails at every point you could at the end of the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton's e-mails.

OMAROSA: That's correct. Yes, that was our talker.

TUR: Did Donald Trump know about those e-mails before they came out?

OMAROSA: Absolutely.

TUR: He knew about them?

OMAROSA: Absolutely.

TUR: He knew what was coming out before Wikileaks released them?


TUR: You're saying Donald Trump had a backchannel?

OMAROSA: I didn't say that, you did --

TUR: How did you know about it then?

OMAROSA: -- But I will say I am going to expose the corruption that went on in the campaign and in the White House. I'm going to continue to blow the whistle on all of that.

TUR: But how did he know about all those emails? If he knew about them before they came out, how did he know?

OMAROSA: You know, they're going to have a press briefing at 2:30. I'm sure you can have your correspondent ask Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

TUR: Is that a question you would ask?

OMAROSA: Absolutely. I would ask a lot of questions.
