Carol Leonnig is a nationally-recognized investigator reporter, and three-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize. She has worked at the Washington Post since 2000, with her lens focused on presidencies and government fraud, waste and abuse. She is the author of three books; in two, she co-authored works focusing on the presidency of Donald J. Trump: "A Very Stable Genius" in 2019, followed by "I Alone Can Fix It" in July 2020. Also in 2020, she published her book "Zero Fail", chronicling the history of the Secret Service and its decay, leading to real fears within the agency that it could no longer properly protect presidents from assassination. Among her many prizes, she won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for her work on security failures and misconduct inside the Secret Service. She was also part of two additional Post teams that won the Pulitzer Prize, first in 2014 for revealing the U.S. government's secret, broad surveillance of Americans through the disclosures of Edward Snowden and then in 2018 for their reporting on Donald Trump's presidency and Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. She is a two-time winner of the George Polk award for investigative reporting. Leonnig is also an on-air contributor to NBC News and MSNBC. She lives in Washington with her husband and two daughters.
