James Comey’s wish — “Lordy, I hope there are tapes!” — may come true.

In fact, this development does not surprise us in the least:

Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman may have taped confidential West Wing conversations and fears being caught up in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, sources told The Daily News on Thursday.

The former reality TV star’s official last day in the Trump administration is Saturday — despite the abrupt announcement of her departure last month — and her next step seems to be lawyering up.

Admittedly, pretty much everybody associated with the administration has hired a lawyer or two, and Omarosa is evidently looking for a blue-chip defense attorney:

Manigault-Newman has met with Harvey Weinstein’s former attorney Lisa Bloom and former Bill Cosby lawyer Monique Pressley, among others.

The 43-year-old apparently believes she may become a fixture in Mueller’s investigation into possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russia’s election meddling.

“Everyone knows Omarosa loves to record people and meetings using the voice notes app on her iPhone,” a source disclosed. “Don’t be surprised if she has secret audio files on everyone in that White House, past and present staffers included.”

If that’s true, the Omarosa Tapes could make “Fire and Fury” look like “Profiles in Courage.” We’re gonna need more popcorn!
