Vice President Mike Pence’s longtime spokeswoman Alyssa Farah will leave the Veep’s office at the end of the month for the Pentagon, the Washington Post reported. 

Farah has been Pence’s press secretary for two years, a lifetime in the Trump-era, and his communications director for the past six months as well. She’s previously worked as the spokesperson for the House Freedom Caucus and as Rep. Mark Meadows’ communication director.

Farah will join the newly confirmed Defense Secretary Mark Esper at the Pentagon and told the Post she plans to hold “frequent” briefings, in the Post’s words.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
