CNN hires Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, assigns her to cover Trump DOJ

CNN quietly hired the daughter of President Obama’s advisor Valerie Jarrett in September as a reporter based in the Washington, DC bureau, according to a report today from the New York Post.

But Jarrett’s daughter, Laura Jarrett, has been tapped to cover Donald Trump’s Justice Department by CNN.

The younger Jarrett came to CNN with no experience in journalism, the Post notes. But the Harvard-educated lawyer defended companies and individuals against the Justice Department as a private litigator in Chicago.
