Fields, formerly a reporter for the conservative news site Brietbart, is joining the liberal-leaning Huffington Post to cover the 2016 campaign with a focus on Trump and the GOP, CNN Money reported

The news broke Sunday evening, one day before Fields is set to start her new job.

"After the tumultuous events of the last few months, I am ready to get back to writing and reporting on what is without question the most bizarrely fascinating presidential race of my lifetime (and, perhaps, any lifetime)," Fields said in a statement on Sunday night.

Ryan Grim, the news site's Washington bureau chief, called Fields "one of the most widely read chroniclers of the conservative movement," according to CNN Money.

Authorities in April declined to prosecute Corey Lewandowski, Trump's campaign manager, on a criminal charge of simple battery after he was accused of grabbing Fields during a campaign event.
