Michael S. Schmidt (37) is an acclaimed Washington, D.C.-based correspondent for The New York Times. His reporting on high-profile stories has garnered him two Pulitzer Prizes, among other awards. In late August 2020, Schmidt’s book, Donald Trump v. The United States: Inside the Struggle to Stop a President, was published by Penguin Random House. The book became number three on The New York Times Best Seller list and number two on both Amazon and the Wall Street Journal’s best-seller lists. Schmidt often appears on MSNBC as a guest analyst.
Quote: “Michael [Schmidt] has broken several high profile stories. Among them was that former F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, wrote a series of memos on how the president asked for his loyalty and tried to interfere with the F.B.I.’s investigations. Michael was first to reveal the fact that Hillary Clinton exclusively relied on a personal email account when she was secretary of state. In 2017, Michael co-authored the stories that outlined how the former Fox News host, Bill O’Reilly, paid off a series of women who made sexual harassment allegations against him.”
