Here is the gist of the tape courtesy of Raw Story:
The recording shows Trump rambling about Hillary Clinton and the Russia investigation after interrupting a meeting about tax cut legislation in October 2017, shortly after reporting showed his rival’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped pay for opposition research by a former British spy.
“I think Hillary is getting killed right now with Russia,” Trump tells staffers. “The real Russia story is Hillary and collusion.”
The president claims that then-staffer Hope Hicks told him Clinton paid $9 million for the opposition research that resulted in an infamous dossier, although Sarah Sanders corrected him to say it was closer to $6 million.
“Did you see?” Trump says. “Nobody knows who spent it. No, I heard it was 9. I heard it was 5.7 but now they say it was 9.”
Trump claims the money was paid through a law firm so it could not be traced, and he insisted the payments were illegal campaign contributions.
“It’s definitely illegal, and it’s illegal from a campaign standpoint, from a campaign financing standpoint,” Trump says.
This dumbass really seemed to believe last year that this whole Russia investigation was going to turn around and bite Hillary on the ass and leave him unscathed.
That is a frightening level of self-delusion.
The other part of this interview that struck me was Omarosa saying that Trump wanders through the White House looking for meetings to “crash” because he has a short attention span and gets bored.
He quite literally has no idea of how to do this job.
Update: Omarosa says that Hillary Clinton was robbed and that she was a co-conspirator.
Former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman to @TheView: “I was in a toxic relationship with Donald Trump and I regret that I was so complicit. You know, Hillary Clinton was robbed, and I was … a co-conspirator in that robbery” https://t.co/iyOFUSMPnv pic.twitter.com/ueWbgbi7tR

No wonder Trump is trying to get her to shut up.
