Stung by the flurry of secretly taped White House conversations released by Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the Trump administration may try to stop more from leaking out by declaring them “classified,” ABC Chief Legal Analyst Dan Abrams says.

“They can try now to classify conversations that happened with Omarosa so that if she does release future conversations then they can go after her,” Abrams said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

“They can say that’s classified information and as a result that’s a violation of the law.”

Manigault-Newman, a former star of “The Apprentice” who President Donald Trump tapped as one of his senior advisers, has been releasing snippets of audio she recorded inside the White House.

That included an explosive recording of her being fired by chief of staff John Kelly in the Situation Room.

She’s releasing the tapes in conjunction with her new White House memoir, “Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House,” to be published Tuesday by Gallery Books, which calls it “an eye-opening look into the corruption and controversy of the current administration.”
