Fox commentator Monica Crowley is expected to become Treasury Secretary spokesperson following the exit of Tony Sayegh, a Fox News alum, next month.

She had been considered for a post at the National Security Council and was viewed as a candidate for the White House press secretary job, according to the New York Times.

Crowley dropped out of contention after CNN charged she plagiarized passages of her 2012 book, "What the (Bleep) Just Happened.”  She later called the allegations a political hit job.

The Times notes that Crowley “has emerged as a conservative firebrand, assailing Democrats and amplifying conspiracy theories about President Barack Obama’s heritage.”

At Treasury, she would play a key role in promoting President Trump’s handling of the economy, including his tax cuts and trade policy.

It's expected that Crowley would be a TV advocate for the president during the 2020 election campaign.
