Crowley, who was recently chosen as deputy national security adviser to President-elect Donald TrumpDonald TrumpMark Walker to stay in North Carolina Senate race Judge lays out schedule for Eastman to speed up records processing for Jan. 6 panel Michael Avenatti cross-examines Stormy Daniels in his own fraud trial MORE, penned the book, "What the (Bleep) Just Happened?", five years ago.

CNN KFile investigative team earlier this month reported that it found “upwards of 50 examples of plagiarism from numerous sources, including the copying with minor changes of news articles, other columnists, think tanks, and Wikipedia” in Crowley's book.

The latest development also follows a Politico report on Monday that more than a dozen sections in Crowley's 2000 doctoral dissertation, titled “Clearer Than Truth: Determining and Preserving Grand Strategy: The Evolution of American Policy Toward the People’s Republic of China Under Truman and Nixon,” appear to have been plagiarized.

Politico said that while Crowley used footnotes to identify her sources in some cases, she did not place the material in quotation marks. In other cases, according to the report, she copied text directly or heavily paraphrased without any attribution.

The Hill has reached out to Crowley for comment.
