Citing unnamed sources familiar with the situation, former Fortune.com editor Dan Primack reports that Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel will join President-elect Donald Trump s transition team.

Earlier on Thursday, The Huffington Post reported that Thiel was being considered as a possible replacement for Chris Christie, who currently chairs the transition team, should the New Jersey governor step down.

According to Primack, however, sources close to Thiel say they d be surprised if he was interested in taking such a leading role.

One of Trump s most high-profile donors, Thiel told The New York Times on Wednesday that he is unlikely to have a formal role within the Trump administration but plans on advising the incoming President.

A page in the book of history has turned, and there is an opening to think about some of our problems from a new perspective, Thiel told the Times.

I ll try to help the president in any way I can.
