Donald Trump, he certainly can pick them!
Donald Trump’s pick to lead communications for the National Security Council, Monica Crowley, plagiarized parts of her 2012 book, CNN reported Saturday.
The review of Crowley’s June 2012 book, “What The (Bleep) Just Happened,” found upwards of 50 examples of plagiarism from numerous sources, including the copying with minor changes of news articles, other columnists, think tanks, and Wikipedia. The New York Times bestseller, published by the HarperCollins imprint Broadside Books, contains no notes or bibliography.
Trump’s transition team stood behind Crowley, who used to work for Fox News, in a statement to the network when confronted with the news.
“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 transition team spokesperson told 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.”
