Monica Crowley, Donald Trump’s pick for a top national security communications job, plagiarized multiple portions of her 2012 book "What the (Bleep) Just Happened," CNN reports.

The book, published by the HarperCollins imprint Broadside Books, was a New York Times bestseller.

Crowley was picked in mid-December to be Trump’s senior director of strategic communications for the National Security Council.

CNN found up to 50 instances of plagiarism in Crowley’s book and published its findings on its website Saturday. Crowley, a conservative author, syndicated radio host, columnist and television personality, copied excerpts from news articles, columnists, think tanks and Wikipedia, reads the report.

Crowley and HarperCollins didn’t return a request for comment from CNN but Trump’s team defended her.

"Monica’s exceptional insight and thoughtful work on how to turn this country around is exactly why she will be serving in the Administration," a statement from a transition spokesperson said, according to CNN. "HarperCollins — one of the largest and most respected publishers in the world — published her book which has become a national best-seller. Any attempt to discredit Monica is nothing more than a politically motivated attack that seeks to distract from the real issues facing this country."
