Cuccinelli had been a CNN contributor, but in covering the news today, CNN’s John King noted he’s “no longer” in that role.
During the 2016 Republican National Convention, Cuccinelli briefly got some attention for his role in a floor protest that led to Cuccinelli throwing his credentials on the ground and Don Jr. saying he looked like an idiot:

Apparently, Cuccinelli’s role may not be the official “immigration czar”––per Politico the exact role is “still under discussion.”
