Former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile will join Fox News as a contributor.

Why it matters: Brazile resigned as a CNN contributor in 2016 after WikiLeaks revealed that she provided Hillary Clinton's campaign with questions ahead of a CNN Town Hall event — a scandal that Fox's Sean Hannity and other right-wing commentators have shown little interest in letting go. She later called it a mistake she will "forever regret."

Rudy Giuliani has vanished from your television. The last time the president's once-ubiquitous attack dog did a major TV appearance was on Sunday, Jan. 20, when he went on NBC's "Meet the Press" and CNN's "State of the Union."

Between the lines: Sources familiar with Giuliani's thinking say he views a major part of his job as trying to undermine public confidence in the Mueller probe and harden the support of Republican voters for Trump to protect him against impeachment. So for Giuliani to stay off TV for an extended stretch is odd.
