Top Pence Aide to Become Pentagon Press Secretary

Mike Pence’s top aide, Alyssa Farrah, is leaving to become the spokesperson for the Department of Defense.

According to The Hill:

Alyssa Farah, who served for two years as a top aide to Vice President Mike Pence, is leaving her post in the White House to serve as press secretary at the Department of Defense, she announced Wednesday.

“After 2 unforgettable years at the White House with the @VP, I’m honored to head to @DeptofDefense to serve as Press Secretary on behalf of @EsperDoD & the incredible men & women of our Armed Forces,” she tweeted.


Farah worked for roughly two years as the press secretary for Pence. She later added the title of communications director.

Prior to her time in the White House, Farah worked as the spokeswoman for the House Freedom Caucus.

Farrah will become the first spokesperson in some time for the department and it will be interesting to see if transparency increases.
