Amid the recent discovery of multiple cases of plagiarism in her works, Monica Crowley has decided to walk away from her appointment to the Trump administration.
Crowley, the author and television personality, was appointed by President-elect Donald Trump to be his Senior Director of Strategic Communications for the National Security Council in Trump’s administration.
CNN’s KFile, an investigative team, had reported that Monica Crowley’s 2012 book, “What the (Bleep) Just Happened” contained at “least 50 examples” of plagiarized material from a multitude of sources.
CNN’s KFILE also discovered that “thousands of words” were plagiarized in Crowley’s 2000 dissertation for her Columbia University Ph.D. degree.
Columbia University has said that any reviews it conducts of the work will be kept confidential.
The KFiles investigative team also reviewed many of Monica Crowley’s columns that she had written for The Washington Times and discovered plagiarism in seven of them.
The Washington Times were the first to report Crowley’s walk away from her appointment, and her decision was later confirmed to CNN by a Trump transition team official.
CNN stated that in a statement to the Times, Crowley said:
“After much reflection I have decided to remain in New York to pursue other opportunities and will not be taking a position in the incoming administration. I greatly appreciate being asked to be part of President-elect Trump’s team and I will continue to enthusiastically support him and his agenda for American renewal.”
