☕️ Good Monday morning.

Situational awareness: Former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman is drawing fire from national security experts for a secret recording she told "Meet the Press" she made in the Situation Room when Chief of Staff John Kelly fired her, AP's Jill Colvin reports:

  • "The Situation Room is a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, where the nation's most consequential foreign policy decisions are made, and staff are not permitted to bring in cellphones or other recording devices."
  • Ned Price, spokesman of the National Security Council in the Obama administration: "I’ve never heard of a more serious breach of protocol."
