DOJ Sues Omarosa Newman Over Financial Disclosure Violation

It is fair to say that Attorney General Bill Barr inherited a real mess. The Department of Justice was rudderless and the place was in chaos.

That is why President Trump needed a wise and experienced hand to deal with all the incoming problems as well as do the job of Attorney General.

Events have proven out that the President chose very wisely in William Barr. This lawsuit is not for a major violation, but we have rules for a reason and if Omarosa is arrogant enough as to believe the rules don’t apply to her, she’s got another thing coming.

CNBC reported that on Tuesday, the Justice Department sued former Trump senior White House advisor Omarosa Manigault Newman for allegedly failing to file required financial disclosures after the notorious “The Apprentice” contestant was fired from her job.

In its suit filed in federal court in D.C., the department 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 that she had to file a financial disclosure form.

After 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 her termination financial disclosure report,” the lawsuit said.

The once-fierce defender of President Trump, Manigault Newman, who now is a strong critic of the president, is accused in the suit of violating the Ethics in Government Act, which is punishable by a fine of up to $50,000.

Last year, she released a book entitled “Unhinged,” in which she accused the President of being a “racist.”

During last August, President Trump’s presidential campaign filed an arbitration action against Manigault Newman, in which they claimed she breached a nondisclosure agreement in connection with her work for his 2016 election effort.
