Trump Appointee Crowley Espoused Anti-Muslim Conspiracy Theoriesby Eli Clifton
President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to name Monica Crowley to lead communications for the National Security Council (NSC) has resulted in a plagiarism scandal for the Fox News personality and Washington Times columnist. A CNN review of her columns for the Times revealed at least seven instances of plagiarism. Politico found that she also plagiarized sections of her PhD dissertation for Columbia University. And HarperCollins announced that it is suspending sales of Crowley’s 2012 book, What the (Bleep) Just Happened? in response to a CNN report that the book contained more than 50 examples of plagiarism.
Crowley is a controversial pick for the top communications post at the NSC for reasons that go beyond her serial plagiarism. Video and audio recordings reviewed by LobeLog show Crowley effusively praising anti-Muslim advocates Frank Gaffney, Andrew McCarthy, and Steve Emerson, and espousing a fringe conspiracy theory about “Islamist infiltration in the U.S.” http://lobelog.com/trump-appointee-crowley-espoused-anti-muslim-conspiracy-theories/#more-37505
