Omarosa Manigault Newman said she chose to release the secret recording of John Kelly in the Situation Room - which marks a breach of security protocols - and recorded conversations with Trump because "this is a White House where everybody lies".
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.
He also says: "If we make this a friendly departure. you can look at your time here in the White House as a year of service to the nation and then you can go on without any type of difficulty in the future relative to your reputation".
Ms Manigault Newman said in the book that she had not personally heard the recording, but that pollster Frank Luntz had heard the President use the racial slur. "They've been threatening legal action, they're trying to figure out how to stop me, they're trying to penalize me because I would not accept the $15,000 a month deal that they offered me for the fake job on the Trump campaign". When asked if Trump was aware of Kelly's decision, the West Wing leader told Manigault-Newman, "Don't do - let's not go down the road. What happened?" Trump is heard saying on the tape. "I, I, Nobody even told me about it", Donald said, allegedly.
She claimed the recording was made when Kelly took her into the Situation Room, a specially secure room where the president and his top aides address major national security crises, and where personal cell phones are not allowed.
That was the juiciest bite about Trump, but the true marvel was the interview itself, as the Omarosa got testy with Guthrie on air for keeping her past the agreed upon time limit. During the interview with Chuck Todd, she brought a recording of her firing by Chief of Staff John Kelly and claimed that it involved a veiled "threat".
She called on the White House to release her personnel file to clear her name.
Gidley, when asked on "Fox and Friends" Monday whether the president was as unaware of Manigault Newman's firing as he appeared to sound on the tape, the deputy press secretary declined to comment on the "tick tock" of how she was dismissed.

After the game, fans at the game, who had come in their numbers to catch a glimpse of their new number 7, flooded onto the pitch. Ronaldo joined the team for training on Wednesday after their return from the International Champions Cup in the United States.
But the other recording she discussed on Sunday could prove equally explosive.
The alleged revelation came as Newman released audio she secretly recorded when she was booted from the White House in December.
Manigault Newman interpreted as a sign that the president wasn't in control of his own White House and had ceded it to his chief of staff. She also said that she was told repeatedly once she was in the Situation Room that she couldn't leave the room, speak to a lawyer, or speak to her husband who was waiting just outside the room.
"I'm expecting that they're going to retaliate", Manigault Newman added.
Indeed, it's likely that Manigault-Newman violated only Situation Room policies, which prohibit cellphones, and other security rules and regulations - not the law. The president expresses disbelief at her dismissal, which he claims he "didn't know" about until he saw it on the news.
Some security experts are concerned the recordings could have compromised national security.
"The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room shows a blatant disregard for our national security", Sanders said in a statement.
"I'm in @Omarosa's book on page 149". She called it false imprisonment.
