Top Pence aide to become Pentagon press secretary

A top aide to Vice President Mike Pence will become the Pentagon press secretary next month, a source familiar with the matter confirms. Alyssa Farah, who has served as Pence’s press secretary for roughly two years, will be responsible for briefings and other key communications at the Department of Defense. 

Jonathan Hoffman will continue at the Pentagon as chief spokesperson. The Washington Post first reported Farah would assume the Pentagon role. Farah, 30, served as the communications director for the House Freedom Caucus before joining Pence’s office. Farah tweeted later Wednesday morning confirming the move. 

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. I look forward to joining the team helmed by @ChiefPentSpox 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/QnSjBmaR7k
