MONICA CROWLEY won't be taking the position of Sr. Dir./Of Strategic Communications for the National Security Council after all, as the former CUMULUS News-Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK, WESTWOOD ONE and TALK RADIO NETWORK host, WASHINGTON TIMES columnist, and FOX NEWS CHANNEL commentator is relinquishing the appointment after charges of plagiarism surfaced in recent weeks.
CROWLEY issued a statement to the WASHINGTON TIMES saying, “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.”
Reports earlier this month alleged that CROWLEY plagiarized parts of her 2012 book "What the (Bleep) Just Happened" and her doctoral dissertation. Her statement made no reference to the plagiarism accusations.
