There's a new opening in President-elect Trump's incoming administration, a National Security adviser has resigned amid allegations of plagiarism.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Washington:

Conservative commentator Monica Crowley has decided not to take a position with the incoming Trump administration, saying in a statement she'll stay in New York to pursue other opportunities.

Crowley had been expected to serve as director of strategic communications at the National Security Council, but reports surfaced earlier this month's suggesting instances of plagiarism in a dissertation and 2012 book.

Crowley is a former Washington Times columnist and former FOX News contributor.
