Another Breitbart staffer is expected to join Trump administration


Breitbart staff writer Julia Hahn is expected to join the Trump administration as a special assistant to the president. Politico reported that two sources briefed on the move have said Hahn is expected to work under chief strategist Steve Bannon, who himself was the chairman of the far-right-wing news site from 2012 until this summer when he took over Trump's presidential campaign.

Hahn joined Breitbart as a staff writer two years ago after working for conservative show host Laura Ingraham. Hahn's most recent articles covered Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions confirmation hearing, where she called him a "champion of civil rights." She is strongly anti-immigration and was critical of Trump's pick for secretary of labor Andy Puzder, because he "stands diametrically opposed to Trump's signature issues on trade and immigration." She was also critical of Paul Ryan's stance on Trump and wrote an article entitled "He's With Her: Inside Paul Ryan's Months-Long Campaign to Elect Hillary Clinton President." Other titles include, "Muslim Immigration Puts Half a Million U.S. Girls at Risk of Genital Mutilation."

"Steve is a fearless voice for people who have been made voiceless, and it is an honor to have worked with him," Hahn said in a Breitbart article in response to the backlash following Bannon's appointment in November for his white supremacist ideologies. It is not clear whether Hahn's position is finalized, according to Politico who first broke the story.
