Donald Trump names former Fox executive Bill Shine to communications job

Shine had been with Fox News since its inception more than 20 years earlier. He will also serve on the communications team.

Veteran Fox News executive Bill Shine is President Trump's new right-hand-man for White House communications.

After several women accused former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes of sexual harassment in 2016, Shine was named in at least four of the allegations or lawsuits and accused of covering Ailes's tracks.

Shine has been appointed the White House's new deputy chief of staff for communications. Her position remains unfilled.

He replaces Hope Hicks, who had surprised many announcing her resignation in late February, one day after testifying before the House Intelligence Committee.

And now Shine works in the White House! Shortly after, she filed her lawsuit. He has denied all wrongdoing.

Fox News settled with Roginsky in December for an unspecified amount.

Some of the accounts portrayed Shine as Ailes' protector and fixer.

HuffPost reported on Thursday that Shine's wife, Darla Shine, frequently attempted to discredit sexual harassment accusers at Fox News on Twitter.

Then there is the fact that Trump's willingness to ignore questions surrounding Shine - what he knew, when he knew it and what (if anything) he did about it - appears to be a feature, not a glitch of this White House. Klayman, a Trump supporter, says that Shine may have broken criminal law for his handling of allegations against Roger Ailes. According to former Fox News personalities Julie Roginsky and Andrea Tantaros, Shine was dismissive of accusations against Ailes, helped to arrange meetings between Ailes and women he had sexually harassed, and suppressed reports of misconduct. How long till the liberal media and snowflakes start taking shots at the great Bill Shine?
