- Omarosa Manigault Newman turned on Trump after being pushed out of the Trump administration
- She was just hit with a $61,585 fine for a violation of federal ethics law
Omarosa Manigault Newman was hired into the Trump administration due to her support for Donald Trump in the 2016 election. After she was forced out by the Trump administration she turned on Trump even writing a book bashing him.
She just got hit with a $61,585 fine for a violation of federal ethics law.
Omarosa Manigault Newman must pay $61,585 for her “flagrant” violation of federal ethics law, a judge ruled on Tuesday. He found the ex-Donald Trump aide blew past her deadline to file a termination report by more than a year.
“The government argues that Manigault Newman should be held liable for $61,585-the inflation-adjusted statutory maximum at the time of the government’s motion-‘because of the egregiousness of her conduct and her significant financial resources.’ I agree,” Senior U.S. District Judge Richard Leon, a George W. Bush appointee, wrote in a 15-page ruling.
Omarosa fired back at the ruling on Twitter, asking if there are “two systems of justice in this country.”
“One that allows those who violate the Hatch Act and Emoluments Clause a slap on wrist and the other that orders an unprecedented fine (highest in history) for an alleged unintentional failing to file a form?” she asked.
Where are all the Trump-haters so corrupt?
