Former spokeswoman for Jeff Sessions at the DOJ, Sarah Isgur, is joining CNN as a politics editor, Politico reports. She is tasked with coordinating political coverage for the 2020 campaign for CNN.
Most notably, however, Isgur has no experience in journalism. She is a longtime Republican operative: Politico noted she has worked for the Carley Fiorina campaign, the RNC, Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, among others.
A source told Politico she will not cover the Department of Justice for CNN, but will occasionally appear on-air to analyze politics.
