Former Obama Aide Stephanie Cutter Joins NBC News, MSNBC

cutter cnnFormer Barack Obama aide Stephanie Cutter has signed on with MSNBC and NBC News, the outlets announced Friday.

“Stephanie Cutter has joined NBC News and MSNBC as a Political Analyst. She will contribute exclusively on a range of topics across all platforms including Meet the Press, TODAY, Nightly and MSNBC,” Politico Playbook first reported.

After serving in the Obama administration and in his re-election campaign, Cutter was hired by CNN to host their reincarnation of Crossfire. When that show was cancelled, Cutter remained a CNN analyst, making infrequent appearances on The Lead With Jake Tapper.

At the same time, The New York Times reported Thursday that Cutter has been tapped to lead a group of Obama veterans pushing for the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, called the Constitutional Responsibility Project.
