According to Reuters, the United States sued Omarosa Manigault Newman.
The former aide to President Donald Trump allegedly failed to file a public financial disclosure report after she left the White House.
The government is seeking a civil fine of up to $50,000 for a violation of the Ethics in Government Act.
Omarosa entered President Trump’s circle as a contest on his reality TV show The Apprentice back in 2004. She worked as the director of communications in the White House Office of Public Liaison for 11 months before departing the administration.
