JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/LAWSUIT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “The Justice Department is suing former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman for failing to file a financial disclosure report after she was fired in late 2017. In a civil complaint filed Tuesday [6-25-19] in Washington federal court, Justice Department attorneys said that Newman, the former reality star and longtime associate of President Donald Trump, had been told about the form before she left her position, and ignored multiple email requests for it in the weeks after her departure. Newman declined to comment about the lawsuit, according to her attorney, John Phillips. In a statement, Phillips said the White House had chosen ‘to abuse process and use the Department of Justice to carry out retaliation’…Phillips alleged the records Newman would need in order to file a report were seized by the White House counsel’s office when she was fired. The White House refused to acknowledge the documents existed until May 10, he said.. He said the documents are still being withheld by the White House, and the Department of Justice released the complaint before Newman had been served in the lawsuit.”
