Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary Katie Miller was placed in charge of all government communications regarding coronavirus.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney sent out a government-wide email ordering all official communications to go through Miller, who recently married White House senior adviser Stephen Miller, reported CNN.

President Donald Trump placed Pence in charge of the administration’s response to the virus, and Jessica Ditto, his deputy director of communications, had initially been handling government messaging.

But Miller took over that role Friday, less than two weeks after marrying the notoriously anti-immigrant White House adviser at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The 28-year-old also serves as a special assistant to Trump, in addition to her duties for Pence, and previously served as spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under then-Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

"President Trump has selected Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the favorite candidate of conservatives, to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and will try to force Senate confirmation before Election Day in a move that would significantly alter the ideological makeup of the Supreme Court for years," New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker reported Friday.

"Mr. Trump plans to announce on Saturday that she is his choice, according to people close to the process who asked not to be identified disclosing the decision in advance. The president met with Judge Barrett at the White House this week and came away impressed with a jurist that leading conservatives told him would be a female Antonin Scalia, referring to the justice who died in 2016 and for whom Judge Barrett clerked," the newspaper explained.

Lincoln Project drops new ad targeting ‘hypocritical Republican Senators’ pushing Trump’s SCOTUS pick

The anti-Trump Republican PAC Lincoln Project dropped a new ad this Friday, this time targeting President Trump's upcoming announcement of his pick to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the "hypocritical Republican Senators who have vowed to push Trump’s nomination through the Senate before the next president can be sworn in."

"The 60-second ad 'The Choice' condemns Republican Senators for tearing the country apart in their unending quest for power and position. It admonishes their unchecked power in their attempt to remake America in Trump’s image," the group said on its website.
