After Being Caught Plagiarizing Her Thesis And Book, Monica Crowley Gets What She Deserves

Last month, Republican strategist Monica Crowley was summoned to work for retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s pick for national security adviser, as senior director of strategic communications at the National Security Council. But things went south after CNN published a report revealing over 40 instances of plagiarism in Crowley’s Ph.D. thesis, which she submitted to Columbia University in 2000. And also on her 2012 book, “What the (Bleep) Just Happened.”

Now, Crowley, who is also a Fox News commentator, will not assume a senior foreign policy communications role in President-elect Donald Trump’s administration, she said in a statement on Monday, according to Politico.

“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,” the statement reads. “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.”

Flynn, who has been accused of sharing classified information with foreign governments, expressed regret that Crowley will not join the National Security Council under Trump.

“The NSC will miss the opportunity to have Monica Crowley as part of our team. We wish her all the best in her future,” he said in a statement.

I guess you’ve been fired, Mrs. Crowley.
