National Democrats have reportedly been assured CNN's new politics editor — the former top spokesman for Attorney General Jeff Sessions — will not make any editorial decisions about 2020 election coverage.

According to The Daily Beast, which cited an unnamed Democratic source, CNN officials told Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez that new-hire Sarah Isgur will not be calling any editorial shots, and will not participate in the debates or town halls the network hosts for Democratic candidates vying for the party's presidential nomination.

CNN has gotten heat for the Trump administration hire, and The Daily Beast noted though ex-politicians and staffers often have served as opinion commentators and analysts, few have jumped right into an editorial gig overseeing reporters.

CNN has also pledged Isgur will not be involved in the network's handling of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, the news outlet reported.

The network reassured its staff Isgur's primary duties will be scheduling the publication of stories, and "coordinating" daily political coverage, The Daily Beast reported.
