Omarosa Being Sued by Justice Department Over Unfiled Financial Disclosure

Omarosa, Donald Trump

*The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against Omarosa Manigault Newman alleging that the former “Apprentice” star, who served as an adviser to President Donald Trump, failed to file a required financial disclosure report after she was fired from the White House.

According to Reuters, the government is seeking a civil fine of up to $50,000 from Omarosa, who spent 11 months as director of communications in the White House Office of Public Liaison before her December 2017 dismissal.

The complaint alleges that Omarosa violated the Ethics in Government Act by failing to file the report, despite several email reminders from the White House. Such a report is required because her salary was above a $124,406 cutoff.

Omarosa Manigault Newman

After leaving the White House, Omarosa became a staunch critic of Trump. She appeared on thereality show “Big Brother,” condemning his administration, and also published a memoir, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” last summer.

According to the complaint filed with the federal court in Washington, D.C., Omarosa’s financial disclosure report was due by Jan. 18, 2018, a month after she exited the White House.

Meanwhile, her attorney, John Phillips, says the White House is using the DOJ to retaliate against Manigault Newman and condemned allegations that she “knowingly and willfully” did not file the disclosure report.

Phillips said his client repeatedly requested from the White House the contents of “seven boxes” of documents that were seized after her firing, which she needed to file the report. The White House agreed to turn over the docs on May 10, months after the deadline to file, but Omarosa never received the files, according to USA Today.
