The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman.
Manigault Newman is married to a local pastor and lives in Jacksonville.
Local attorney John Phillips is representing her in this case.
The lawsuit accuses Manigault Newman of failing to file a financial disclosure report after her departure from the White House.
Phillips said the accusation that Manigault Newman "knowingly and willfully" failed to file is untrue. In a statement, Phillips said in part, "This is premature, retaliatory and yet another attempt to silence a dissenting voice."
Phillips said Manigault Newman has no comment at this time.
