Justice Department sues former Trump advisor Omarosa Manigault Newman failing to file financial disclosure after White House firing
The Justice Department on Tuesday sued former Trump senior WH advisor Omarosa for allegedly failing to file required financial disclosures after the notorious The Apprentice contestant left her job.
The department claims Manigault Newman, a once-fierce defender of President Donald Trump, was told after she was fired in December 2017 that she had to file a financial disclosure form.
In 2018, she released a book entitled Unhinged, which accused Trump of being a racist.
The department, in its suit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., claims Manigault Newman, who had been director of communications of the White House Office of Public Liaison, was told after she was fired by then-White House chief of staff John Kelly in December 2017 that she had to file a financial disclosure form.
When she allegedly failed to do so, the suit claims, she was reminded of her obligation seven more times from January through March 2018.
Notwithstanding the numerous attempt to obtain her compliance, Ms. Manigault Newman has not filed
Manigault Newman declined to comment. Her lawyer, John Phillips, denied the claim in the suit, and accused the White House of using the Justice Department to retaliate against her while denying her access to records she needs to file the disclosure.
Once again, the White House chooses to abuse process and use the Department of Justice to carry out retaliation. The lawsuit alleges that Omarosa Manigault Newman knowingly and willfully failed to file a report. This is untrue, he said.

Was it her autobiography?
Let me guess; in Omarosa’s mind, everybody is at fault but her.
I’m sure she misses the prestige and the public interest she used to have, but thoroughly trashed.
Lock her up.
Who has the bigger hammer?
Michael Duncan certainly dodged a bullet.
But he got another that was fatal.
Good, let her be fined for the proceeds from her book.
Sooner or later... it always catches up... Just say’n
And Hitlery still walks the streets free. California officials subvert federal law DAILY. Where are the priorities???
Here it comes.....3...2...1 “Trump has weaponized the DOJ”, you heard it here first.
The DOJ is charged with enforcing laws and regulations, just because they are doing their job any malcontents can go fish.
Put her in Riker’s Island for a “stay!”
Couldn’t happen to a more deserving creature. If true, she’ll be on CNN within the hour badmouthing Trump when he’s the one who made her famous.
I always knew she would wind up biting him in the a$$. Not sure what he ever saw in her as she was always a conniving B
How can you dodge a bullet when you’re dead?
I still think it reflects badly on Trump that he ever offered this loser a job.
i think he believes in second chances...
