The former leading spokeswoman for the Department of Justice under former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is joining CNN as a political editor for the 2020 presidential campaign, Politico reported Tuesday.
Sarah Isgur, who has no experience in news, is joining CNN next month to coordinate political coverage of the White House run, the news outlet reported.
Isgur joined the Trump administration in 2017, overcoming resistance from President Donald Trump, whom she regularly criticized as deputy campaign manager for Carly Fiorina’s 2016 presidential campaign, Politico reported.
She began working with Sessions ahead of his confirmation hearing, Politico reported.
At CNN, she won’t play a role in covering the Department of Justice, Politico reported, citing an unnamed CNN official.
