Trump supporter Scottie Nell Hughes to part ways with CNN
“My contract with CNN was only through January,” said Hughes in an email response. “No contract is being cut or is ending early, and I was under no illusion it was going to continue past that.”
Hughes was referring to an earlier report by New York Magazine and Daily Beast contributing writer Yashar Ali that her contract had been “cut.”

“As a strong, vocal supporter of Mr. Trump from the beginning of his campaign as well as a representative of the grassroots conservative movement, it should come as no surprise I had my share of disagreements both on and off the air with my colleagues,” said Hughes.
